Cancellation of Indian passport




My parents recently got their Canadian citizenship End of Jun 09. I just needed to know how do you go about canceling the Indian passport?
Is there a time limit?
At this moment we dont want to apply for Indian visas just inform the Indian Consulate.
I cant seem to find any information about this on the Consulates website.
Any information will be appreciated.

No formal procedure as far as I know. When they apply for Indian visa for the first time, you'll have to send the Indian passport, at which time, it will be cancelled.

but on my passport which was issued at the toronto consulate ( not theirs because it wasnt issued here) there is a stamp that says that you have to surrender that passport on acquiring another country's citizenship

Yes, it does say that. You will never have to surrender the passport. They will cancel the passport and return it to you. When you apply for Indian visa, they must either see a previous Indian visa on your cdn passport (which indicates that you had previously submitted Indian psprt for cancellation) or must see the indian passport (that is no longer valid, regardless of cancelled or not).

A majority of people send in their indian passports if and when they apply for indian visa for the first time. Even if it does not have a cancellation stamp, the indian passport automatically becomes void upon acquiring a foreign citizenship.

Thanks Dimple. So by that I understand that its not illegal to hold on to it until you apply for an Indian visa, am I correct?
