Do applying for Minor passport in India with mother alone needs affidavit?


I hope i’m in right place to get your experiences.

I want to know whether minor passport requires affidavit when father is not in India.

Me and my wife have our spouse name in our passports. My wife delivered baby 2 months back, by the time I came to US. Now we are planning to apply for passport for our new born son.

Since we both have our spouse name in our passport, do I need to get affidavit from US consulate and send to my wife or not requires when the spouse name are presences in passport.
