Annexure E for a Passport

Passports are the most common, and also the most reliable form of self identification not just in the country but all across the world. When applying for a passport, you can choose to do it in either one of the two ways- the first is to apply through the normal procedure that might take some time to arrive. And the other option is tatkal, where you will have to pay some extra fees but the passport is prepared and dispatched on priority basis. However, along with the extra charges, the applicant is also required to submit the Annexure E document.

Annexure E is a general obligatory and a self declaratory affidavit issued by an individual that states and confirms the applicants basic information, citizenship and all other personal details that are claimed to be true. The applicants are also required to state that they hold no criminal record in the previous five years. In addition to this, the applicants need to confirm that the given information is accurate and true from their side. This document (Annexure E) is therefore also used to check criminal records.

Have a look at the guidelines given below to create an Annexure E Affidavit-
  1. How to Create Annexure E Affidavit ?

    Download the Annexure E form from the internet - https://portal2.passportindia.gov.in/AppOnlineProject/pdf/AnnexureE.pdf and print it on a simple paper. Once the details have been filled out, the applicant is required to sign at the bottom along with the date.
  2. Who is required to make an Annexure E Affidavit?

    Anyone who is applying for a passport and is required to state their address, personal details, criminal records, citizenship and other such information has to make this Annexure E affidavit.
  3. What are the requirements of Annexure E Affidavit?

    As stated earlier, Annexure E is a self declaratory affidavit carrying the personal details of the applicant. The details to be mentioned include the Applicant’s name, date of birth, address, father’s name, mother’s name, and spouse’s name (if married). In addition to that, the applicants also need to clearly mention the nature in which the Indian citizenship was obtained, that is, was it by birth or descent or registration or naturalization etc. There is also a statement of a declaration to state that the applicant does not hold any criminal record in the past five years. 
Lastly, most people apply for passports through agents these days. It is advised that these applicants (especially) take a look at Annexure E Affidavit before it is sent into the passport office for verification.
