Passport is a matter right for every citizen, so you will be entitled to get the same. But as you have a criminal record you need to obtain permission from the court at which your case is pending. Also you need to show cause as to why you require the same. Then only you could apply for online passport registration. Further for any help you could consult me.

You can apply for the passport as like others do in the normal course. The exception is that you need to declare in the passport application form that you have a criminal case unlike others. As of now there is no separate provision laid down to apply for passport for the person holding criminal suit pending!
