Will Indian Passport Office be contacted if printing US address on new passport?

Hi There,

I have a question regarding passport renewal process.
Do we know that if we provide US address to be printed on new passport along with a valid proof then even in that case there will be some verification or information requested from Indian regional passport office back in india.
Just wanted to know if there is any dependency on passport office India to provide some information back to Indian Consulate in USA for issuing new passport.

I think the Indian Regional Passport Office report is requested by Indian embassy even in case of US address printing.
But, there won’t be any physical address verification in India.

Thanks Anil,

The reason I am asking is because its been 3 weeks my application is still showing ‘Under Process’ at consulate and no updates have come so far after that.
I am not sure if it is really stuck at Indian regional passport office for some information requested to them by Indian embassy.

Don’t worry, it normally takes 4-6 weeks.
