1. Can you better explain the situation. On what basis did you get Indefinite Leave to Remain? Are you refugee or asylum seeker? Or was it on some other basis that you go ILR? Do you want to travel within the EU or outside the EEA?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
So I got the discretionary leave to remain as I filed for asylum which was refused. The residence permit is valid up until the 19th of april 2016
The country that I want to travel is india

2. You can apply for what is known as a "Certificate of Travel". This is given to a person whose asylum claim has been refused but has been given discretionary leave to remain in the UK when they have been formally and unreasonably refused a passport by their own country. A certificate of travel will usually be valid for the same period as your permission to stay. Be aware that if you have children, that they cannot be included on their parents' or guardian's application form for a travel document. Be aware as well that a certificate of travel issued to a child will usually be valid for a shorter period.

3. Here is a link to the relevant pages of the UK Government website which sets out how you may apply and the basis upon which you may apply https://www.gov.uk/apply-home-office-travel-document/overview. Fill in the form TD112 BRP. be aware that you must have a biometric residence permit in order to apply for this certificate of travel.
