Hi All,

The name changing procedure in India is very simple. Just need to
make an affidavit before a 1st class Magistrate and advertisement regarding name change in a news paper.

But where these procedure is specified? I mean, the Civil procedure code talks about only affidavit under section 139. Can anybody help me in this?

 

Regards,

Rashmita

I think just it is a procedure adopted.  But in karnataka if you want to change the name in the school records, certificates and marks cards first you will have to issue notice u/s 80 cpc to the Govt., of Karnataka rep., by Dist commissioner and to the Deputy Director of Public Instruction by giving 60 days time to make necessary corrections in their records.  Normally they wont change so suit will have to filed for declaration and injunction.

Sir,

Thanks for your reply. The name has already been changed. But few days before when we approached a government office for some work and we have submitted the necessary documents along with the affidavit. They are not accepting the documents and asking where these name changing procedure is specified and also keept the process pending which we had opted for in the office.

After newspaper publication before searing the affidavit, THE CHANGED NAME HAS TO BE PUBLISHED IN THE GOVERNMENT GAZETTE. There are agents who charge upto 500 Rs. The gazette publication takes about two months time. Merely publishing it in a newspaper does not complete the pro0cess of NAME CHANGE.

Correction "Swearing instead of searing]. Only the Governor or the president are competent to release the list of gazette notifications.

I feel there is a need to have precise law/legislation on this. Name changing procedure is very simple. In Maharashtra you have to just notify the name change by notification in the government gazzete.There are very chances that by name changing, people can resort to unlawful things.
