I want to change my mother's name in SSLC n PUC markscard. In my markscard its there as Pushpa. now that she is changing her name to padma, I have to change in my markscard too. Can you guys please tell me the procedure to do the same.
In case you wish to change your name, that also includes your father's/mother's name (!!) or even Surname you have to follow a very simple procedure.
Go to the State Government Press in the Capital City of your state.
Ask them for the form for change of name and obtain it.
Fill up the form and submit it (preferably then and there).
Pay the requisite Fees in cash. (Rs. 120/- in Maharashtra for routine (6-8 weeks for publication) and Rs. 620/- for urgent (2-3 weeks)).
The Press would publish the details of the change of your name (or father's/mother's name, or surname as be your case) and post you two copies of the Government Gazette or ask you to collect the same. The press would also let you know when they would publish the same.
Thereafter wherever you wish to submit your change of Name / Father's/mother's Name / Surname Proof, you can submit true copies of the relevant pages of the Gazette.
The procedure is adopted for the change in the date of birth and age and even for a change of religion.
the procedure you mentioned is for changing the name. but i am expecting the procedure to change the name in markscard . I visited my school for this purpose and they said its very difficult to change the name, they said like its impossible to do. i am not able to collect enough info on this. so if anyone could help me out it would be a great help for me.
But why at all is your mother's name is mentioned in your marks sheet as far as my knowledge goes only the father's name goes into the certificates. If you give the facts of your case clearly probably we can suggest some solution.
I am from Bangalore. In my markscard , both my father and mother's name are mentioned. Now my mother is changing her name. so in future to avoid any problems, i want to change the name in my markscard too. i still have not applied for passport. i want to apply for it with my mother's new name. So i have to get it changed in my marks card also. When i contacted the school with this issue , they said its very difficult to get it changed. but i need to get it done quickly. I thought of getting it done without the school's help. I tried but dint find enough information on how to get the name changed in markscard.
Few of my friends said this will be an issue when applying for visa especially for US type countries. If there is not going to be any problem then i will follow your way. i mean sorry for asking you this, are you sure we can do it that way?
I guess you can approach the concerned department which conducted your sslc and puc examination and issued certificate(like secondary education board or something).
There will be some procedure to make changes in the certificate(except marks). May be you will have to produce the document having official declaration of the change in your mother's name. A separate certificate will be issued which you can attach with your existing certificate(This is the procedure in Kerala).
