If only one of the parents holds a valid passport but other does not, then the parent who does not hold passport should be physically present along with the original passport of other parent, and
If both the parents are having passports, then any one parent can be present with both parents' passports (in original) while submitting the application for minor child.
Tatkaal passport without Annexure F: Please note that passport in case of Tatkal application submitted on the basis of three out of sixteen documents (instead of Annexure F) will be issued after confirmation of genuineness of the three documents from issuing authority or on receipt of clear police verification report. In such cases, issuance of passport may take much more time than prescribed under tatkaal category in order to confirm the genuineness of three documents where status of documents is not available online and because of procedural requirement passport office will not be responsible for delay. Therefore, applicants who are in urgent need of passport are advised to apply for tatkaal with Annexure F instead of three documents.
