wrong date of birth in passport


Hi
 
A person I know had a wrong Date of Birth on his passport. Whether the mistake was from his side or passport office's side is unknown. However he didn't get it rectified as it is cumbersome. However when he renewed his passport after the expiry of the old one, he continued with the same wrong Date of Birth; and has also stated wrong Date of Birth in his US Visa , Canada Visa ,Australia, SA Visa etc.  Subsequently he also got the Date of Birth rectified in his Pan Card...giving the wrong date as his Passport.
 
Is this an offence..If Yes, how serious and is it punishable? Can anything be done now as its almost 17yrs. now that the mistake is there on the Passport.
 
Thanks
 
Regards

Hi Sudhir, Thanks for responding. Well nothing was done to rectify it. On top of it the mistake was repeated on the new passport after the expiry of the old one. its 17yrs...... will it be safe 2 try getting it rectified now. ... Is it a punishable offence?

Navin, this surely is a punishable offense. He should have corrected the DOB at the first instance when he saw that it was wrong. Now he will have to correct in all the places. He has committed a Gross blunder in giving the wrong DOB for all the visas.

he has to infom the authorities.

Thanx for responding. I would like to know what would be the punishment under IPC if reported now...  or will it just be OK if the mistake is rectified now.

What is somebody else complains.. as a lot of people know abt it.

Whether DOB on Visa can also be rectified?
