If a criminal case is pending against you in any court, you can be issued a passport subject to the condition that you enclose a written permission granted by the court allowing you to travel abroad. Normally a short validity passport valid for one year is issued, subject to conditions if any, mentioned in the Court order as per GSR 570 (E) dated 25 August, 1993.
In the instant case, you will need to attach a copy of the court reg withdrawal of the case.

498a FIR cannot be withdrawn or compounded as it is an non compoundable offence. you need to approach the high court for quashing of the FIR. regarding travel abroad, you can move an application before the court concerned and pursue it effectively.
