Is Affidavit for Change In Appearance mandatory if mine has not changed?

Hi Anil,
If my appearance has not changed much since my old passport, but I do not have the same picture I used for the old passport.

Do I need to fill in “AFFIDAVIT FOR CHANGE IN APPEARANCE”?

It is mandatory to fill the ‘Change of appearance form’ these days. It does not matter if you select that your appearance has not changed.
The CKGS online application will ADD it to your document list automatically in either case.

So if CKGS online application will ADD it to your document list automatically, we do not need to NOTARIZE change of appearance form?

Notarization is required for ‘Change of appearance form’ in any case.
