For Passport Applicants
Every passport applicant in India is required to submit ‘no criminal offense affidavit’ in the form of Annexure I. It is also used to declare the applicant’s citizenship and family details.
The passport applicants are required to submit different annexures for different purpose, the formats of which should be as given by the Passport Authority. One such annexure is Annexure I, which is required to be submitted by every passport applicant declaring his/her basic personal details including name, date of birth, parents’ name, spouse’s name, citizenship details along with a declaration stating that there is no criminal case pending against the applicant. Since this annexure itself works as a no-criminal record affidavit, the passport applicants need not submit another affidavit for the same purpose.
