My wife want to apply for the passport for the first time after our marriage.
1) All my wife's college certificates are having her father's surname(old maiden name).
2) Where as after marriage, we have got her name mentioned in Ration Card,Election Card ,Aadhaar Card and in all documents including our children birth certificates & children school records with NEW surname.
Hence there is only a change of surname.
I need guidance/clarification for the following:
1) As we are not having marriage certificate, I want my wife's Passport to be issued with NEW surname. Whether only Annexure D is sufficient ?
2) For date of birth, as her SSC board certificate is shown with her maiden name(old surname),whether same annexure D is sufficient?

Annexure D will be sufficient only for change of name in future. For change of name in past records, either you have to file a civil suit or give a paper notification. Filing civil suit will lead to the change of surname in the SSC certificate by the concerned board. Paper advertisement will serve the purpose of getting passport.
As my wife's name is already mentioned with NEW(my) surname in all Aadhar/Ration/Election cards and even my children Birth/school records, we may be queried by passport authorities only about SSC certificate having OLD/surname with respect to date of birth.
So here, we want to make use of Annexure-D instead of marriage certificate.

For getting passport in the new surname without any change in the SSC certificate, you have to give paper advertisement. That will serve the purpose of getting passport. No need of changing name in the SSC certificate. If you take the help of any passport agent, he will do this easily for you. Normally they charge around Rs.5000 for this.
