    Just booked a flight and realized I filled in my sisters DOB with my name. Is there anyhing I should do? Or is it not a problem?

    The notification regarding the new rule states:♦ In case of a clerical error, a fresh passport would be issued against charges for a new booklet.♦ If it is found that an applicant's birth certificate issued by the government contradicts documents which he/she had initially submitted, the date of birth on the passport would be amended. But the applicant would be fined for submitting false documents initially.The only exception to the five-year limit is for a person who was a minor when the passport was issued, provided the applicant produces a birth certificate issued by the government while requesting for a change in the date of birth.

    Im not sure if youre saying theres an error with the passport or the booking you made?
    for passport contact the people who issued it [whichever ministry] and sort it out asap since they take forever and a day to replace.
    if its a booking error contact the airline/agent etc. and you could amend it over the phone its not a particular issue.
