I want to share my experience with HCI London for my UK born baby.
First make it clear you need it just to get Indian passport , if any parent have ILR and want to settle here, Just simply apply for British passport for your baby.
You have to fill online form first

please make sure you follow the guidelines it take time but you cant do anything to fill it fast..so be cool and fill it.
than Take appointment for HCI London https://www.vfsvisaservice.com/IHC-UK-A ... VLcp3A4%3d
now take self attested photocopies of both parents passports, visa, marriage certificate, address proof , baby full birth certificate, Declaration Form https://www.hcilondon.in/pages.php?id=89
and appointment letter. don't forget to take all originals for above copies verification and one passport size photo of baby , mother and father.
no need to take baby with you, any of parent can go for registration.
its better to take photocopy with you otherwise their machine charge 20p for each copy and some don't work as well.
fee is 19 pounds cash only and self addressed envelope if you don't want to go back just to collect it.
you feel old Indian working system still working here ,building is big but you have to go back of building arrow pointed out and closed door monitored with camera and no marking for door bell. after checking for you bag they give toke no if you not have any appointment otherwise take you appointment letter and ask to join to waiting crowed, only one window (person) is in working order other window are like showpieces. even with appointment you have to wait for one and half hour in small congested and boring room with notice 'not use your mobile phone'
but you feel relaxed when you come out and get your paper...
