I am working in USA with H1B VISA. I am from India. Now I am applying passport renewal.

In the renewal application form, there is a section where I have to give 2 of my relatives/friends address who live India.

What is the purpose of this section and what Indian Government will do with these addresses?

During the verification process the passport office might contact them to ensure that the details furnished by you are indeed correct and up to date.

In addition, these names / details will be kept on your file with the Ministry of External Affairs.
