Dear Agarwal,

       Visit the authority who issued your Birth certificate and confirm the authentication.

Thanks a lot sir and mam. the Agent has told me that as it's issued with a back date i.e. yr 1995 but with a newish paper, so I need to wait further period to make it look dirty and then laminate it for the passport application. I have found on net that, there are many instances where birth certificates are issued within very few days for passport and often the birth certificates are issued FAKE which is caught and criminal offecne is lodged against the applicants (who don't even know whether it's forged or genuine)
