I respectfully submit that the Passport Officer won't understand that the Notary Public has the same powers in matters of affidavit more so when the application reaches the Clerk. He will see that it is not before the "Judicial Magistrate" and straightaway reject it.
It reminds me of an interesting incident that happened with me. I decided to apply for a passport for my son who was just six months old. With all the documents and proof, I applied. If I remember correctly there was no application fee - only passport application form was priced at Rs.50. Page 10 of the form required signature of the applicant where I signed as his father and to make them understand I wrote "The child is six months old and can't sign". Pat came my application back with the remark "Signature of the applicant required on page 10". I sent back the application with a forwarding letter explaining again the position. In Hindi, we call such people "LAKIR KA FAKIR" i.e. bereft of any wisdom and following the dotted lines.
My letter had no effect on the mandarins of Passport Office. The application form cam back again with the remark "signature of the applicant required on page 10".
I felt that the dumb fools won't understand anything. I sent a long letter to Mr. Romesh Bhandari, who was then the Foreign Secretary and sent with the letter all the correspondence. The Passport to my son was issued within the same week.
Moral of the story is to settle the affidavit before the Judicial Magistrate as mentioned in Annexure G.
In India, from birth to death, at every step we settle affidavits. Most of them are fake and false but law is satisfied when it sees it on non-judicial stamp paper which again is fake.
