    National archives of India

    Hi,

    I've come across this website which may be of interest to anyone researching officers with India connections.

    http://www.abhilekh-patal.in/jspui/

    It seems like a portal to the National Archives of India. It seems relatively recent although maybe I've just never seen it before.

    I'm very intested in registering as there are some records there about one of 'my officers', however the site asks for a passport number in the first stage of registering.

    Has anyone used this site before and is satisfied that it's safe/legit?

    Regards

    I have no experience with the site but I would be very wary of supplying anybody with my passport number. I am of course, an old cynic.

    Given that an Indian website won't be able to cross-refer with HM Govt's passport database, and unless you plan on visiting in person, does it matter what number you put in? Just a thought...

    I also posted this enquiry in Victorian Wars Forum and had some results of interest.

    Unfortunately they are not good experiences, however I remain hopeful for the future.
