Legal News: Delhi High Court’s order on Passport regulations brings a ray of hope for single mothers


The Delhi high court ordered that applicant should not be forced to mention the father’s name of the child in the travel document which has given a ray of hope to single mothers . Delhi high court said that they are already facing problems in getting passports of their children. Meneka Gandhi who is the Minister for women and child development had urged to Sushma Swaraj , the external affairs minister to amend the passport regulations which makes the mentioning of the father’s name mandatory.

This decision is welcomed by Single Mother Anindita Saerbadicari who was very thankful to the Delhi high court for its decision and considered it a “big step”. The film maker who opted for IVF, doesn’t know the sperm donor’s identity and she too faced immense difficulty on getting her son’s passport . On this she questioned saying, “How do I get hold of his name for my son’s passport?” , as she doesn’t know the name of the sperm donor so how will she mention the name of her child’s father.

Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva of the Delhi High Court on Monday passed an order after hearing the plea by a man who had requested for the renewal of his passport which was rejected by the regional passport office in Delhi because he has not mentioned his father’s name on the passport form. As, his mother was divorced on account of desertion and neglect and was staying alone from since 2003, he refused  to mention his father’s name.

The Passport authority told the Delhi High Court during arguments that its software is designed in such a way that computer does not accepts the application without filling the father’s name. The Delhi high court directed  to issue the passport to the person within 3 working days. This decision of Delhi high court has turned into a big good news and evidences the fact that India is adapting to the changing times.

Daughter of a software professional, Somdatta Roy was also troubled while getting her passport from the regional passport office in Kolkata because she did not want to mention the name of her. She mentioned, that her parents were divorced and because of which she did not wanted to mention her father’s name. But when she applied online for the passport, it was mandatory to mention the father’s name she said. She also said, she went in person to the Regional Passport office, she was humiliated rather for refusing to make the disclosure of her father in the passport form.

The decision of the Delhi High Court has empowered the women which she describes as a huge step. Now I will too apply for my passport again. If there is any problem, I can refer to the Delhi High Court case, she said with a sign of relief.

Sarbadhicari, however point out that it is important to have  a law that makes it mandatory to issue passport even if the applicant does not mention his/her father’s name. She said, “Unless it is a law, this will remain an individual fight. A law is needed on this in the larger interest of the public. The decision of the Dellhi High court has made this subject a debatable one by passing such an order. Such effort of the Delhi High Court should not go in vague and a law should soon be passed regarding this in the sheer interest of the public.
