    I want to ensure whether it is necessary to mention the passport number in the application form because i have applied just before a month.

    Hi Hindumati – It has clearly been mentioned in the application form to mention the passport number. But since it’s been only a month for your passport application and you should get it before the program starts, that shouldn’t be a necessity. However, I think you should write in to an official and be clear about this this.
