OCI application query - Return of Original British passport

Can somebody please confirm if the original British passport is returned immediately after the OCI application is submitted at VFS centre OR is it returned along with other documents by post some time after the application is made?

Please let me know.

Re: No Surname in Indian Passport - British Passport Issue

Thanks again.

I will make a note in the additional section.

I am also pretty sure that only normal witness is required who is not a relative. My confusion was to whether we need one or two....in some websites it says two and some only one.

Re: No Surname in Indian Passport - British Passport Issue

Created deed poll using https://deedpolloffice.com/change-name (i am sure there are others also) – current name include Mike Khan, for surname leave blank and it asks whether you have left it purposely – say yes. New Name put Khan as surname – this way in the deedpoll the difference is clearly high...

someone with Pakistani nationality, a country which allows dual citizenship
Agree that the solution is not the same for all nationalities.

But isn't the OP an Indian from his post?

Re: Change Name Immediately after getting First British Pass

Do not change names until you get your OCI (if you plan to apply for it).

Re: Email from case worker today..please advise

Thanks again.

Another point is my driving license has surname and forename split correctly, ie. surname BBB and first name AAA. If I have in my British passport XXX as given name and surname as AAA BBB, will this cause any conflict and problems?
