What will happen if old passport expires before you receive renewal passport

Hello,
My passport is going to expire soon, We already applied for passport renewal in Indian embassy. However due to recent covid situation I have feeling this process is getting delayed.
I’ve valid visa and I don’t have any plan to travel at this time. What will happen if old passport expires before you receive renewal passport.

You would have already sent your old passport along with your renewal application. It will be returned (with a cancelled stamp) along with your new/renewed passport. All unexpired/valid visas remain valid in the old cancelled passport.

Hi Diwedy,

Thanks for your response. It is very helpful.
Also I’d like to know if there is any problem/issue here if renewal get delayed and old passport get expired. Is there any impact other than travel

None whatsoever. You can renew passport even after its expiry. The only issue is, you cannot travel.
