I am Parth . I am applying for a new passport and I am Indian by Birth (1996).
Now Query is I have Birth Certificate issued by Gram Panchayat in Gujarat (in gujarati language). I heard that lots of people talking about this some says it's acceptable some says they are not acceptable ..
Officials says about birth certificate --->(my birth year 1996) "For applicants born on or after 26.01.89, only Birth Certificate issued by the Municipal Authority or any office authorized to issue Birth and Death Certificate by the Registrar of Births & Deaths is accepted. No other document will be accepted as proof of date of birth."
So Can I apply for the passport with a birth certificate given by Gram Panchayat.
