1. Application Form (with 1 photo)
2. Copy of photo page of British passport
3. Copy of naturalization certificate
4. Copy of Surrender certificate
5. Postal order for £175
Are you sure that a birth certificate is needed. I would have thought the Indian passport and consequently the SC is a proof of Indian origin as well a proof of date of birth. Also when I submitted my OCI application the guy at the counter didn't ask for it.jasonin wrote:
You do not need to submit passport copies. The surrender certificate is enough. If you were born in India you will need to submit a birth certificate from an Indian Muncipality/Village Panchayat.

OCI number is the File number on the last page of the Indian passportjsr2016 wrote:Hi
Thanks for your reply. But the form ask for copy of British passport n also for Oci registration number
Hence not too sure
Firstly that is incorrect. An Indian passport holder (who should also be an Indian citizen) can not simultaneously hold OCI.saanju9 wrote:OCI number is the File number on the last page of the Indian passport
Last page - last row
It clearly says that "For applicants applying for Passport or Consular Services, please enter your passport/identity document number in the field ‘OCI Registration Number’."jsr2016 wrote:Thanks Fay but cannot see where it is mentioned.. To use passport number.. And is it Indian passport number.
