  1. Hi Anirudh,

    Am going to apply passport for my Mom, She has the School certificate for Date of Birth Proof and Non-ECR Category proof. For address proof she has UCO bank pass book only. The Voter’s ID of her has old address and the Adhaar Card(which is two years old) has correct address but wrong Date of Birth.( We didn’t check the DOB before :()

    But she has one valid proof of address that is Bank photo pass book , for secondary proof which is the fastest way to get the process done? Changing the address in Voter’s ID or Changing the DOB in Adhaar Card(which is two years old)? Or just the bank pass book is enough?

    However i applied for the change in the aadhar card ,and the status is showing “The request has been processed” What does that mean? Did they approve my request.

    Kindly advise. Many Thanks in Advance
