If you have already effected your name change through official gazette, hope you will be having a copy of it in your possession, the gazette copy may be attached along with your certificates to prove that you have changed your name officially later on which has been authenticated vide the attached documentary proof.

Sir, thank you very much for the replies.The reason i am going for name change in birth certificate and B Tech certificates is that we are not sure whether Official Gazette of India is legally accepted in USA too.I have my passport issued with my new name whereas my certificates have old name.Can Gazette copy be used as an supporting document in USA too??

Kindly suggest on the same.

The gazette publication is a government issued document which has its own authenticity, if you keep suspecting on such issues you may not take anything for granted anywhere whether in India or abroad.  How did you get the idea that the Indian Government gazette will not be considered by US.  Every country has its own law and procedures for everything differing from the country.   It doesnt means they will insist only on the basis of their country's rule and regulations on each and everything should happen or to comply as per their own laws.  As advised, you may accompany the gazette copy along with your certificates, it will certainly be accepted or in the event of any other requirement by that country as per their local law, you may come back to this forum for further advise on the subject.

Ms. Reena,

You have to apply for change of name in your B.Tech Certificates and Birth Certificates duly enclosing your Gazette Notification, otherwise you will be in problem in US.
