Hi, I have got Indian passport by birth, although, i was not born in India but in Dubai. Now I am residing in London, UK. The problem I face right now is I lost my indian passport here in UK but recieved a new one after a serious hassle of 3 months but the consulate gave me one year passport rather then 10 years( i applied for 10 years). the reason they said was get the visa first then we will issue you with 10years passport.
Another problem is i lost my passport like two months before my UK visa ran out, although, the UK Home office accepted my visa but my lawyer says my visa will not be renewed due to delay in getting a new replacement passport. I have not heard from UK Home office yet but incase if rejected then I have to return to India. If i do get back to india then my passport runs out as it is one year 'SO WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE TO APPLY FOR AN INDIAN PASSPORT FOR A PERSON WHO WAS BORN AS A NRI AND LIVED OUTSIDE INDIA'
