It is best to renew your passport. Renewal in General Scheme takes maximum 14 days and under Tatkal, it takes maximum 7 days.
Once, you get your new passport, change your passport credentials in your myimmyaccount.
Just to be on a safer side, fill up "Change in Particulars" form and send it to DIBP by email.
I changed my passport after visa grant last year and updated DIBP through email. After a couple of business days, I received an email saying "Your information has been updated in DIBP's database".

You cannot, they do not issue a new grant letter. But I think you can print out from VEVO showing the new passport details (not sure of this).

Hi Folks,

I have sent an email to "[email protected]" and got my new passport number updated. The Vevo is showing the new passport number. I have sent an email from vivo and got printout of the same. Hope it will be enough but can't be sure with Indian Immigration.

Seniors: Anyone who has traveled with a changed passport number share their details.

Bro, most airlines don't let you travel, they require minimum 6 months validity in Visa. It might be an issue with Immigration.

Possible way out: Apply for Tatkal Passport . Update the passport details to [email protected] for updating it. Your new passport details will be updated in a weeks time (max).

Since you have 3 months, please do it ASAP and yes, opt for Tatkal Passport .
