How to change your name legally in India? (3 easy steps)

I am a lawyer by profession, and have followed the below given procedure for changing my own name. Let me use my experience to help you to change your own name.

Follow the below given steps for changing your own name.

Step 1 – Affidavit

Go to you local Notary and make an affidavit regarding change of your name. You have to mention therein your specific reason for changing your name. For example, you may like to change your name after marriage (especially for women), due to astrological or numerological reasons or anything. Recently, one of my friends was going to start his own company who was locally famous in his nickname, and thus he changed his name from Rishabh Agarwal to Saurav Agarwal.

Note: Here is your sample name change affidavit for reference.
Tips: Make a few copies of your affidavit, and preserve the original one carefully. It’s better to scan it, and preserve its electronic copy on your external hard disk as well as on multiple computers.

This affidavit can be used for changing your first or last name and also using the same, you can completely change your name (both first and last name, for example from Rishabh Agarwal to Saurav Verma).

Step 2 – Newspaper Publication

I, Sri ___________________ (old name) have changed my name from __________________ (old name) to ______________ (new name) by affidavit sworn before the Notary Public, ______________ (place) on ___________ (date). Henceforth, I shall be known as _________________ (New Name) for all purposes. ______________ (Name) and _______________ (Complete postal address).

Full Signature

Fill in the blanks with appropriate details and publish it in your local newspaper.

Tips:

You can choose any 2 local newspapers for publishing it. (No need for FrontPage coverage). Although you need only once copy but its better to get ten copies of that newspaper in which your statement is published and preserve it carefully, because it’s now a lifetime issue. It’s better to preserve both the hard and scanned copies of the newspaper.

Step 3 – Gazette Notification

Now for getting your name published in the Official Gazette of your state, for example: “The Delhi Gazette”, you need to do the following things:
1. Visit your local Government Press or the department that mobilizes Gazette notification.

2. Get 2 copies of “Deed Changing Surname Form”. (Fill this form carefully as per the instructions provided therein)

3. If possible get the phone number, or the mobile number of the person of that department who can help you for Gazette Notification.

Verification

You need to send the following documents to the Secretary, Department of Commerce & Transport (Commerce), _________________ (State).

  1. Letter to the Secretary, requesting him to allow you to change your name. (Click here to view sample letter)
  2. The “Deed Changing Surname Form”
  3. 2 True copies of the newspapers in which your name change statement is published.
  4. Attested copy of the Name Change Affidavit.
  5. A print out of the statement in plain paper that you need to publish in your official Gazette. (Generally Same as your Newspaper Statement)
  6. A Copy of your current identity like your Voter Identity Card, PAN Card, Birth Certificate, School or College Certificates and etc.

Tips:

Get an A4 size envelope, put the above mentioned documents in it, and send it to the above Secretary, Department of Commerce & Transport (Commerce), _________________ (State).

Make copies of everything and preserve them both in hard and electronic formats, for future reference.

Reference:

1. Here is your Gazette Notification Format.
2. Click here to view name change deed form.
3. Click here to view the sample letter to Secretary, Department of Commerce & Transport (Commerce), _________________ (State)

Within a week, after due verification, you will get a reply letter from Secretary, Department of Commerce & Transport (Commerce), _________________ (State). Click here to view sample reply letter that was sent to me.

Make a few copies of the reply letter and again visit the Govt. Press or the department that mobilizes Gazette Notification and follow the below given instructions.

  1. Show them the reply letter, and they will match it with the order than they have received from the Secretariat (of your state).
  2. Deposit the required amount for the publication. Here the amount depends on the kind of publication you want to go to (General and Extraordinary.). If you go for the extraordinary one, you can get the copies of the publication within a week or two.

Note

Once your statement is published in the official Gazette, you name change process comes to an end, and now you can enjoy your new name. Congrats!!!

Tips: Make a few copies of the Gazette Notification and carefully preserve it for a lifetime.

Documents involved in the whole process

  1. Name Change Affidavit
  2. Newspaper Publication
  3. Name Change Deed
  4. Request letter to the Secretariat
  5. Name Change Statement
  6. Reply Letter from the Secretariat
  7. Publication Money Receipt.
  8. Gazette Notification

I am eagerly waiting to read your valuable comments.

        You can change your name school certificate within 10 years period since when u passed out from secondary education and its better to visit your local CBSE office for the further informations

      • gcvhghhax December 12, 2016 at 11:22 pm #

        that’s why you need another certificate showing that for eg
        if your name is Rohit KK in your certificate and u r changed name to Raj KK then u need ‘ the other certificate’ indicating that Raj and Rohit are the same person.

      It is advisable to get all the Previous Documents in the new name, but just to not waste time in doing so, you may get your future documents in the new name.

      I think it should not create any problem in future !

      no need to change name in old documents but you have to submit a copy of publication every time you submit any document with old name.

    • Mubashshir August 17, 2016 at 9:27 am #

      The best and easy way is to get the Aadhar Card in the name as you wish! Because your finger print number is unique and it never changes. Introduction of this Adhar card changes has almost sidelined the process of getting tedious state gazette notifications. While you just need to keep a notary affidavit and newspaper record, that’s all….!

  13. Janani May 6, 2013 at 3:17 am #

    Sir ,

    1. Is this the stringent procedure that has to be followed for a person to change the name (for minors as well as majors) in every state ??

    2. I just delivered my baby and registered her name in the Chennai corporation. I have her original birth certificate with me. My husband and I are not in good terms and are living separately for last 6 months. (not divorced). Now he is not approving of the name that I have kept and wants to change the name. I dont want him to do that without me knowing.. How can i stop him from doing that ???

    3. Does this legal procedure mentioned above require that both mother and father have to sign the affidavit incase of minor..

  14. Hemant Varsiney May 13, 2013 at 6:13 pm #

    Congrats and thanks for sharing the procedure.
    I have few questions?
    1. How much time this process takes?
    2. I’m not worried about Educational certificates as there is no need to change name there. but I guess we have to further follow for change in name in voter id, adhar, passport.
    Please advice.

  35. Dayanand Doee July 14, 2013 at 11:12 am #

    sir i want to know that when i’ll change my name then all documents(all marksheets,voter id, Driv. lie. etc. ) will be change or not….??

    • admin July 26, 2013 at 11:13 am #

      Name can be easily changed on cards e.g. voter, dl, passport but its very hard to change names on your school/college certificates… but even if you won’t able to change names on these certificates it won’t create any problem. Along with your school-certificates you will always need to provide the name-change affidavit, and gazette notification.

  36. Ishita Barnwal July 17, 2013 at 12:31 pm #

    Hello sir,

    I need some clarification from your side. My old name was Beauti Kuamri and I have made it Ishita Barnwal. But my advocate has written in affidavit that I will be known for both the name. He has told me if I change my name completely, form Beauti ot ishita then I need to change in all the documents and because of that He mentioned in affidavit that From date …. henceforth I will be known from both the name Beauti Kuamri as well Ishita Barnwal… I am not ok with this process that two name will be acceptable or not. He has taken 1000 rs as well for name change and now according to affidavit m known by these two name. Is this process ok…

    Kindly guide me regard this. And send me suggestion on my mail id [email protected],com

    • admin July 26, 2013 at 11:18 am #

      This process is okay, but with this process you may not change your name on your identity cards. You can change your name completely. You have to create a new affidavit before Notary Public or Before the Executive Magistrate, that I have changed my name completely… with newspaper publication and official gazette publication you can update your identity cards…

    Sir, If I just want to add my family surname to my exsting name, do I have to go through all the steps? In passport, they don’t ask for the gazette notification. Is it absolutely necessary, or just an affidavit and newspaper publication would do?

    One of my friends just added a surname in his id cards and company ID, and he was not asked for the gazette notification.

    Kindly help!!!

Or is there a different procedure for the same.

I also don,t have surname in all my academic documents and I also have passport with only single name but I heard that if you are looking for higher study in abroad so problem will come at the time of visa. Some countries create problem due to only single name. So I am trying to add my surname in all my documents and passport also.For this I have contact to passport office so they are saying make a affidavit and publish in two news papers and submit affidavit and newspaper cutting your name will change. so in this only two steps are covered so what about third step. other side when I asked from any layer they are saying make a affidavit and submitted to gazette office and your name will change. please help me out which one is correct and best way to follow to add my surname so that in future I will not face any problem.

    My situation is quite complicated. My name is Chintan R Sakaria and I was born on 26th February 1993. All my school records and identity cards like DL, Aadhar, Voter ID are in the same name. I was born in Chennai and the name in my birth certificate is mentioned as Chirag R Jain. (My parents later renamed me Chintan). I need to change my name in the birth certificate for getting my passport. I am 20 year’s old now and I have lost my original birth certificate, but I do have a Xerox copy of it. I currently stay in Bangalore. Could anybody guide me through the process of changing names in the birth certificate. Tell me 1) how should I change my name in the birth certificate 2) Get a new birth certificate in the changed name

  86. Arpita Sarkar Goon November 12, 2013 at 11:50 am #

    Hello Sir,
    My name was Arpita Sarkar before my marriage and after marriage I changed it Arpita Sarkar Goon by making an affidavit. Now my new passport, Pan Card and all the bank documents are having my new name as Arpita Sarkar Goon, but while applying for Voters Card they are telling me that this is not possible I should have kept my maiden name Sarkar in braces after Goon. So it should be Arpita Goon (Sarkar). Is it true? Can’t I keep my name the way I did?And the way it is appearing in all the other document.
    Kindly reply.

  87. Satyadarshi November 14, 2013 at 12:57 pm #

    Dear Sir,
    I need your advise on ‘adding the last name’ to the name of my son.
    His name is Aviral and want to add Singh to it … now I have sworn an affidavit for same and got this published in two news papers also. He is pursuing the BE from VTU so his name should be changed in university records as well. College authorities are not clear of the procedure. They have asked the 10 marks card and on the basis of that they will change that. In this case they are telling that the marks card of 10th should also have this change. I’m confused that how is it possible when the adding of last name has taken place now? Kindly guide on this.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello sir..
    My name is Mani Gupta. I am resident of Mumbai, Maharashtra.
    I want to change my first name to Manish from Mani.
    What is the procedure?
    I have already read ur above experience.
    But I have got some doubts.
    Like in affidavit what reason I should mention. Because I dont have any deescrepancy in my name. I want to change just for my all friendsand also relatives call me Manish, though my all documents have Mani. Even I am more comfortable with Manish.
    Please guide.

    Sir:
    I am a US citizen of Indian origin returned to India a year ago and wishing to apply for a OCI card. The problem is my Last Indian passport bears the name that I used in India and the US passport carries the name that I used in the US. I believe that I can change my name officially to the US name by following the procedure you suggested. But my question is since I an a foreign citizen, does India government accept such a name change for OCI requirements; or do I have to get a name change court order from the US? Please respond to [email protected]

  162. indrani mukherjee March 13, 2014 at 1:40 pm #

    Sir,

    I have been married for last 6 yrs, but retained my maiden name in all my documents. Moreover last year my husband changed his prevailing surname to his forefather’s surname- affidavit was done and accordingly newspaper ads published. Also as last year my son was born, so accordingly in his birth certificate, my husband’s and thereby my surname was as per the new surname.
    Now my husband has applied for change of surname in his passport and I’m also planning to apply for name change in my passport.
    But as I found for documents required for name change due to marriage- marriage certificate/affidavit to be submitted, so in marriage certificate my husband’s old surname is present. Is there any way to change that?
    Also, will it be a problem in future if I retain my maiden surname in all documents including passport with spouse name mentioned, but in my son’s birth certificate it shows my name as maiden name plus husband’s surname?

    Please advise.

  163. indrani mukherjee March 13, 2014 at 1:52 pm #

    Sir,

    In addition to my previous queries, I and my husband jointly own a flat and in our purchase agreement and therefore all property/ Assessment tax related papers are carrying my husband’s old surname. Also our home loan has the documents carrying old surname.

      Sir, my mother who is about 76 yrs ( married in 1957), acquired a plot in 1975 and my father got house constructed on it by his income. My mother is a house wife and the property was acquired by her late father in her maiden name . Her first name was changed at a later stage without following the procedure of any affidavit etc. Her passport and bank account are having her changed name. Now she is selling that house property (and the sale deed is to be executed in mid June , 2014) , which is in her maiden name( though acquired after 17 yrs of marriage) . What to do now so that she may have just one names to avoid the probable issues arising out of her two names? Can she change her name in the property records now before executing the sale deed ? She has to apply for a pan card for the sale transaction of the property . Further , the proceeds of sale has be deposited in a bank account but she is having account in her new name. How to tackle this issue? Can she continue with two names ? Kindly suggest . My email I’d is [email protected] gmail.com & phone no is 09810371818. Regards

    Please let me know, in life how many times a single person can change his name?
    Or is there any restriction that one person can change his whole name only once in life.

    For eg:
    1. Ram Yadav — to –> Mohan Singh
    Then again
    2. Mohan Singh — to –> Amit Patil
    Then again
    3. Amit Patil — to –> Shyam Patel

    Is it Possible?

    My name is Sreekar and it is the same printed on all of my educational certificates. However during my initial stages of my career due to my innocence, while applying for PAN card, i filled my name as “Sreekar Nair” and it got printed with the same name. At a later point of time I bought a flat and at the final moments of registration the housing loan personal told me that the registration can happen only with the name printed on the PAN card. Since it is the final moment of registration, I agreed upon that and so the flat registration happened with the name “Sreekar nair”. This happened 4 years back and now I have cleared the entire home loan amount. I will get the registration documents soon. Now I am very much desperate to change my name in registration documents to the original/correct one (Sreekar). Can you please advise me the needed legal steps to do this.

    Hi admin,

    I did’nt had a surname in my documents in all my education qualifications till Post Graduations all speciying “Abhishek”.
    It was a mistake in class 10th document I want to get my surname added as these days last name is Mandatory in bank formalities, exams as well.
    So Noticing this change requirement in middle of my bachelor degree,I made necessary changes by an affidavit for name change stating “Abhshek Kumar “.

    I have copies of newspaper articles and affidavit too.
    I am Working in an MNC….
    I need this problem to be synchronized as such so that i don’t face any such issues further, as still my pay slip is on single name.

    I have also to apply for passport for the same …
    So, if you could please let me know will that affidavit which was prepared 3 years back can be considered in following the 3rd Step” Gazette Notifications” .

    Note – As affidavit was Prepared in Patna as that is my native and currently working in delhi … so can this thing be done from delhi itself .

    Please help me out as its on an urgent basis .

    Thanks & Regards
    Abhishek

    Dear Mr.Akash Shetty,

    Recently I have got my name changed, I am finished with first two procedure, but getting gazetted, I understand in Karnataka such procedure is not there for private employee, I have checked in Vikas soudha Gazette wing. only thing is they will provide a endorsement letter saying that this rules is not applicable for Private employee.

    Kindly let me know whether with only affidavit and with published news paper can we announce our name officially.

    with these two documents can we change our name in Bank, PAN Passport and voter ID and whether it will be valid

    Whether the document has to be compulsory gazetted? if it is not done at Karnataka then where we will have to approach for the same.

    will await for your reply

    Regards

    my name is sreeragh. i am from kerala,but now working in oman. from my birth certificate,10th ,12th,degree, voter id and also my passport the name is sreeragh. without having a sur name. but in my resident /labour card (resident id )of sultanate of oman because of problem of the name without surname,the oman govt officials added my fathers sur name which was printed on the back side of the passport to my name as for them it was mandatatory to have sur name with the name in all of their official documents. for some years it was going fine.but the problem arrised when i applied for a visit visa to dubai. due to the mismatch in the name in the passport front page( ie, sreeragh) and the resident card issued from oman sreeragh parmeswarath krishnan nair, my visa got rejected.
    so i dont want any further problems wth this name issue. i want to include sur name and to change it as sreeragh sreedharan pillai in all relevant documents.
    kindly help me how to start in this situation. also reminding you that my oman working visa and also my medical licensing certificate to practise in oman is issued in the name of sreeragh parmeswarath krishnan nair. so do i have to apply again for the visa with the new name.
    Am i personally be present in kerala for applying for the affidavit and newspaper publication.kindly guide me through my mail id.
    thank you
    sreeragh. soon want to see it as sreeragh sreedharan pillai

    Hello sir,

    First of all I would like to say thank you to you for such a informative tip.

    I have one problem with leagal documents.
    My name is unnati in all documents excluding my birth certificate. And now I want to apply for passport but in that we have to submit our birth certificate as a proof. In my birth certificate my name is other than unnati(it is binita).

    Is there possible to change name in birth certificate??? If yes then please tell me process for it.
    (Because only one leagal doc has binita name.and I want to change it in to unnati.)

    Thank you!

    Dear Aakash Ji

    Greetings!!!

    To the subject followed, please be informed that I along with my family have lawfully changed our names by fulfilling all the legalities.

    In due course we obtained the following docs.

    News paper publication
    Gazette of India

    On behalf of the above documents we have got our respective IDs changed. Pan card, election card and Aadhar card.

    But when we apply to get the changes done in our children’s birth certificates the registrar has refuse to do so and said that it is not possible.

    Aakash Ji, kindly advise how to proceed further to get the changes done in the birth certificates.

    Looking forward for your valuable response.

    Best regards
    Deepti Kaur
