There is nothing like the renewal of a passport. Instead, it is known as 'Re-issue' of passport. The procedure is different for a passport which has expired within three years or due to expire and those which has expired more than 3 years ago. In a case of passport which has expired more than 3 years ago, a fresh police verification is required.
The author may visit the website to locate the Passport office and the PSK (passport Seva Kendra) nearest to his place and contact them for full guidance and procedure. The expire passport should always be carried while going for any discussion.

In case you are applying for the new passport after 3 years of expiry. You have to mention the details and other requirements in documents along with police verification process. And that process can't be skipped by just registering online. You have to go through all the process and then get the new passport in your side.

Here's the process for you.

1. Register on the official website of PSK.
2. Get your printout for the new issue of the passport.
