Processing of Indian Passport Application
The processing for a new, renewal, re-issue, or correction of Indian passport can take anywhere between 1-6 weeks depending on various factors like jurisdiction of the applicant, whether the case is referred for clearance, incorrect application, time taken by courier, and so on. Lost/damaged passports may take 2-3 weeks more than the regular processing time.
