IPC AND PASSPORT ISSUANCE

Unless a court of law hinders one from getting a Passport, by the fundamental right anyone can get Passport. But a court of law can seize one’s Passport and forbid the holder from going abroad until the case against him/her has been disposed of. When people who are charged with relatively less offensive sections wherein no criminal intention or mindset is reflected in the part of the accused, are normally worried about getting Passports. These sections are not very big offense. It can happen to anyone. You can also inform the court and ask for No Objection Certificate. But if you are contesting the case, then you are available to the court of law for trial. It can also be mentioned in the passport application. It is neither a serious crime nor a case of moral turpitude hence they cannot deny your passport. The details are provided in the Criminal Law in India. The sections are given below.
