Default Passport Renewal in India

Has anyone renewed their passport via tatkal service in India as against doing it in USA? If yes, how long did the tatkal take? Where would you rather renew the passport - USA or India?

Renewing passport in India on your vacation is scarier than a horror movie, you can read lot of scary stories if you dig in here. Do it in US if you don't want to invite unnecessary headaches.

Getting a green card would be easier than getting passport renewed in India after going from USA.

Renew in USA since you have been living here, in many ways it is good for you.

If you are in B1/B2 or certain other special visas, agencies in USA won't renew your passport.

Default Passport renewal in india

I used tatkal to renew my passport in India in feb this year. i did not have any issues and i got my new passport withing 2 weeks. I did use an agent who helped me fill up the forms and accompanied me to the passport office.
I was adviced not to chnage my address otherwise it will go for police verification which may take time. So if u are going to keep the same address as before and can receive ur passport at the same address as before..there should not be much hassle.

The passport office in Mumbai is great...all electronic, no hassles and on-time. If you face any issue, you can arrange for a same-day appointment w the passport officer (yes, no wait/phones/chamchas to go through) and he/she can give a decision on-the-spot.

The consulate offices in US are also ok. It depends on you....renewing it in US would allow you to enjoy a few more days of vacation in India, but if you are under time pressure, renew it in India...
