Proof of place & date of birth - for passport application

Dear Sirs/Madam/Expers,

Regarding the subject I have two queries on different cases as explained below, and the requirement is for the Passport Application for my parents who are senior citizens and my father is a Kerala State Govt. Pensioner (retired as a teacher):

Case1

For my father.  He retired as a teacher in 1988 (Lower Primary School teacher).  He passed SSLC.  But at present not having any SSLC or other leaving certificate either original or duplicate. So as per the documents' List mentioned in the Passport application instructions provided in the website, we do not have any documents for the proof of place & date of birth of my father. 

Please be noted that the available documents are :  He is having original Pension Book (not pension payment order) on which the date of birth is indicated (as 08-April-1933).  He is having Aadhar Card, Ration Card, Bank Passbook with DOB and photo/address etc, Voters ID, Electricity Bill (in his name), Gas Connection Book of Indian Oil Corporation (Indane) with his name /address etc.

In the above documents nowhere indicated his place of birth.  The date of birth indicated in Pension Book and Bank Passbook only.  Voter's ID Card/Ration card -  age (apprximately) only mentioned.  In this particular situation how could I apply for a Passport for him preferably if I need in Tatkal scheme? 

Case2

My mother is 73 years old housewife. Her place of birth is WXYZ (in Tamilnadu) ans she studied in Madurai till 8th std only. She could read, write Tamil/Malayalam well and will sign in English.  She does not remeber even which school she has studied in Madurai and not having any transfer/Leaving certificate or birth certificate indicating the subject information (Place & Date of Birth).

Please be noted that the available documents are :  She is having Aadhar Card, Name in Ration Card, Bank Passbook with photo/address etc, Voters ID, in my father's pension book - her name is indicated (wife),  etc.

She can sign an Affidavit with Notary attestation for her place/date of birth if she is an illiterate/semi-literate but in this case my mother is not illiterate as I indicated above!  (otherwise whether she has to declare as in the affidavit as illeterate for the proof of DOB & POB?)

In the above documents nowhere indicated her place of birth / date of birth.  In the Voter's ID Card/Ration Card, age (apprximately) only mentioned.  In this particular situation how could I apply for a Passport for her preferably if I need in Tatkal scheme? 

NB: There are legal property agreements (purchased by) in both of my parents' name.

So please be advised my how could I approach the Passport Officer on this particular case.  Please note that I have contacted Passport Seva personnel and they are not able to provide any other advice other than the norms/conditions as per the required documents.

Your prompt response and advice will be highly appreciated with thanks in advance.

with best regards
