Passport indian renewal in New Zealand

I live in New Zealand, online status shows -print initiated but yesterday got an automated email for police verification on my indian address, got confused, how will they check if no one lives in indian house,?? @anil_am22

This is a new process as Indian government has made police verification mandatory for all.

Police station will contact the Indian phone number that you gave while filling the application.
They might also visit the Indian address.

The people at your Indian address just need to verify if you ever lived there. That’s it.
