It's legit. Just follow the instructions on their website to the dot and you will be fine. Apnna dimag mat lagao even if you find things too good to be true.


Thanks D1 lol that’s exactly what’s up. I’m just gonna follow them to the T.

I know! I renewed it last year and easy peasy in 4 weeks had a new passport in hand

1 week and u will have the new passport in your hand.

Had mine done two months ago- they took just 2 weeks, the Indian Consulate in NY called me because they apparently wanted a notarized copy of my current passport, i.e. the one I sent to them to cancel during renewal- go figure. In any case I sent them a scanned copy via email -_-

Yes. Took a week for the new passport to arrive. Process is super straight forward

Thanks guys!! Also, Did y’all do Tatkal? Mine doest expire u till May next year I just want to get a head start so doing it sooner.

Nope. Do regular. No need for tatkal.

Damn, I am still so sad with KK news. He was such a gifted singer and had a magical voice. every time I bought a new headphone I always tested them with KK's songs for vocals. His best songs are Labon ko (Bhool bhulaiya 1) and Khuda Jane. Interestingly he also sang for tamil hits like Apadi podu, Uyirin uyire, telugu hits like -feel my love.
His live voice was as good as his studio recording voice, just wow!
