First thing don't even look at their site..They never update it..If you are applying for a fresh passport u have to get a VERIFICATION CERTIFICATE along with Annexure I. There is no other option you have.You can get Annexure I from any court,borivali or bandra or goregaon.. But where to get Verification certificate from??..well look for contacts..somebody u know whose a GM of a PSU..or DIG,Magistrate,Collector..check d sites for this details.
And if you don't have anyone who can issue that for you then you have to go through a long procedure to get it from a deputy collector. In my case I took help of Borivali Tehsildar (Mr. Vinod Rane). I went to him personally and discussed my case with him. Only Bandra Office are permitted to give the verification certificate not Tehsildar's Office. But still he took interest in my case and asked the deputy collector of Mumbai(Ms Farog Mukkadam) to look into my case. So i went to Bandra again with all the documents required and annexure I. There they officially entered my case into their register. I took the sign from the deputy collector and came back to meet Mr. Rane. He then requested the Mandal Adhikari of my region to go and personally take a statement from me and my father at my residence and also take signatures of three of my neighbors as witnesses. After that was done some official papers were made by the officers in the tehsildar's office.Once that was done Mr. Rane finally signed on those sheet and asked me to rush to Bandra and ask the deputy collector to complete the procedure and issue me the Verification Certificate.
Keep in mind.. if you want to get a verification certificate urgently from tehsildar office, do all the work by yourself. Don't wait for the officials to send your documents through post. That will take a lot of time. So do all the running by yourself to get it done.
All the best. Do post your Queries if any...also share your experience too.
