The plea was made after her application for passport was rejected in November 2015 on the grounds that she did not produce a marriage certificate or a joint affidavit to prove that she is married to Modi.

"Jashodaben came to the office today (Wednesday) and filed an RTI application related to her passport. We will give her reply in due course," said Regional Passport Officer ZA Khan.

According to her brother Ashok Modi, Jashodaben filed the RTI application to know about the marriage-related documents that Modi had submitted when he applied for his own passport during his tenure as Gujarat CM.

Khan said Jashodaben's application was rejected in November 2015 for lack of supporting documents.
