My mother inlaws passport expired, does she need police verification

My mother in laws passport expired on Feb 21, 2021, will apply for her renewal somewhere in June end 2021, does she need police verification, as we will keep the same Indian address which is on the current passport. Her previous Indian passport was issued in USA.

She is already 71 years old.

Generally, PV is done for all renewals. However, there have been cases reported by the forum members where PV was not initiated. It can go either way. Be prepared.

or if we keep USA a new address, on the passport, then also we need PV

It’s not the question of “needing PV”. It’s decided by the competent authorities. As mentioned earlier, it may or may not happen.
