I am staying from last 4 years in a rented accommodation in Ghaziabad and I and my parents do not have a permanent house as we have sold our house 7 years ago. I got a tatkal passport 2 years ago, Now passport office has sent me a notice for adverse police verification that I have mentioned a rented house as a permanent address and they fare frightening me by saying that they will cancel it. But this sounds too illogical as many people will be there who does not own a house. Permanent address is the mandatory item in passport form which I filled as my current address. What is the law or definition of permanent address in India? Please help. I am in urgent need.
