Do you know the passport application process in India has been improved like anything in last few years? I can still remember those days when I had to stand in line for collecting passport application form, then for submitting the application form, then to pay the passport fee and followed by verification. But now you can do almost everything online except police verification. What I want to say here is, you can now pay your passport application fees online itself using your debit card or credit card or using net banking.
Step by Step guide to pay passport fees online in India
This is an independent process, that means in the first step you might have filled the passport application form online or you might have uploaded the XML form to submit you passport application. Next you have to go to view saved passport form area.
Select the submitted form and then click on the pay now option. Then you will get the screen of passport appointment. System will automatically suggest you an available date. If you are ok with the date then proceed with the payment options available. You will get below 2 options in the next screen.
Either you can pay the money online using Internet banking, Debit card, Credit card. Or you can choose the 2nd option and pay the amount by visiting any nearest SBI bank branch. For more details check out the information taken from passport India official website.
