  • ansAs per annexure k you can have passport without spouse name when divorce is not granted or divorce petition is pending and when such divorce petition is pending and divorce is rejected later on passport will be issued with spouse name. That's what it means.

  • ansIf you are in Mumbai, best option is to visit Worli passport office and enquire. There are regulation changes. If your divorce is not granted you will have to inform the passport office and get it reissued.

  • ansit means that if the Court does not grants or permits or allows the divorce as contemplated by you then in such an event, you will have to re-apply for the passport and inform the authorities about the rejection or refusal of the Court to grant divorce and in such situation, you will have to get new passport with the name of your spouse !

    hope this has clarified your doubt ! !
