Dear all,
In new Civil IDs, passport number (starting with zero ( 0 )) is not written correctly. Zero in starting is avoided in Civil ID. Not only for Indians, other nationalities also have the same mistake.
PACI authorities say it has no problem to travel outside. Anybody pls advise how to correct this..

As long as the First Name and Last name is spelled correctly on the CID (according to your passport) there is no need to worry, the second name is initialized because of space constraint. Download the MOI app and confirm if all given names on CID are written in full as in Passport. You are good to go.
