I have lost my 10th marksheet and birth certificate. How can I apply for the passport?
10th marksheet is for ECNR Passport and birth certificate is for DoB.
If you have any such document that carry your DOB like Aadhar card, PAN card, DL, voter icard etc. it can get substituted as DoB certificate.
Similarly, if you have any educational document higher than 10th mark sheet, that will go for ECNR passport.
You can check document advisor in Passport Seva Website for documents required for applying for Passport.
