Lost Indian Passport

Post by aditi.singh » Sun Oct 21, 2018 5:50 pm

Hi,

I applied for my British passport and sent my Indian Passport as it was required.
Few weeks later I received my British Passport but my Indian Passport was lost by the HM Passport office.
I've letters from the passport office accepting that it was lost by them/Royal Mail.

Now, I need to apply for OCI but got no Indian passport to surrender.
I've read that I need to submit signed affidavit to get the 'Renunciation of Indian Citizenship Certificate'.

Question:
1) I've been told there is a form on VFS website that I need to fill and take along for the appointment. But I am unable to find this form. Can someone please share the link?
2) also, someone told me I can take this form along with other supporting letters and the VFS office can stamp and sign my document for a small fee (10-20 GBP). Is this correct?
3) else, do I have to write my own affidavit (format / text) and get it done from a public notary only?

Option 2) sounds easier and cheaper.

Thanks in Advance
Aditi

Also,

On the VFS website, it only asks for a 'self-written declaration':

http://www.vfsglobal.com/india/uk/Surrender.html
Off Topic
Applicants who are unable to provide the physical Indian Passport are required to provide a self-written declaration, addressed to the ‘High Commission of India, London’ or it’s respective consulates, with a detailed explanation for the misplacement/loss.
So, is a Notarized Affidavit really necessary?

Hi, I am in the same situation and can not find any form of help online. Can you please tell me if you have got OCI and how did you get renunciation certificate ?
It will be a great help. Thank you.
