Place of Birth in Indian Passport Renewal

#1

Hi ,
I’m in the process of renewing my Indian passport in USA and I have below question. :

In place of Birth my current passport has : MEERUT UP

In CKGS application as directed I have filled : MEERUT UP

Now in NRI form it ask me to fill Place of Birth and then select the state and District. I have filled as follows :

Place of Birth : MEERUT UP

District : MEERUT

State : UTTAR PRADESH (This mandatory to select)

In the passport preview it is coming as

MEERUT UP, UTTAR PRADESH.

Can you please help here if this can be a problem or what should I select here ?

Thanks

You should be fine. Do not worry if the online NRI form is not allowing you to change it.

Thank you Anil for your prompt response,

So I should write whatever is there in my passport. My passport has “MEERUT UP” in Place of Birth and State is mandatory in NRI form.

so it is coming out to be MEERUT UP, UTTAR PRADESH in Passport Preview.
