Name change by gazette notification is valid outside india?


If i have changed my name by "Gazette Notification" . Is it legal out side of India? I mean my degree certificates are with old names and my Passport is with new name. do i really have to change my name in all degree certificate? or if i attach Gazette Notification with degree certificates - with old names it will be enough while applying for Permanent resident Visa of any country or finding and doing Job in Software company? 

Also if i remove Middle name and keep only first and last name is it OK? any where is it mandatory to put middle name anywhere in India or Abroad? 

Yes, it is valid for all purpose.



BASED ON THE  GAZETTE NOTIFICATION YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR OLD NAME TO NEW Name and on the new passport basisVISA will be issued. So Name change by gazette notification would be valid outside India or abroad.


Yes, Visa will be issued based on new Name changed in new passport but my Degree certificates(10th, 12th, BE, M.Tech) and employment certificates( experience letter and reliving letter) will be with OLD names so if I need to work in Software company in foreign countries will those be acceptable? Since gezzet notification is done by central government of India and not from foreign authority where I am going to work.

Change my caste

It is valid out of India also till local law in that country requires any other formality to be observed in the matter.
