Dr Siva Kumar.

Under The Passport Act & Rules, the details of the passport holder is confidential and cannot be revealed to unrelated third parties except in case of a request of an official who holds a public office and where it is necessary to know the whereabouts of such person, the information can be divulged.

Under Article 4 (1) (b) (xvi) of the Right to Information Act, 2005

 You can't get it.

drsivakumar (n/a)     15 September 2009

thanks sir for your immediate reply. is there any other option to find a persons whereabouts.

Anil Agrawal (Retired)     15 September 2009

 Passport is certainly not one of them. The address may be fake, the fellow must have disappeared. Get his residential address first and contact police.
