I am working for a software firm and may be required to go abroad. i was thinking of applying passport. Problem is that I have a court case pending. Here are the details-
Judge found some contradiction in complainant's statement and dismissed the 156(3) section of code of criminal procedure. However, 34, 294, 354, 448 and 506 sections of Indian Penal Code are still pending. It's been 18 months since the case was lodged and so far judge has not issued summon against me. All this information I have obtained is through Internet and via a source at the court. So legally, I am not even aware that a court case is pending against me.
Can I directly apply for a passport? or do I need an NOC from judge. if yes, what is the procedure? i have also heard that i can also get passport without police verification. Is it possible? The case is registered in Delhi and I am currently in Bangalore due to work. Where shall I apply for passport?
