query is on procedure and not on law. contact concerned deptt.


There is not any issue with that name because last name is always considered as surname, however if you would like to change the name than you can apply for reissue of passport and take appointment of Passport Seva Kendra via and visit PSK with an letter on plain paper (Application) and new PP will be come with your new name. Not any other formalities.


If you find any mistake/error in the particulars printed in the passport booklet and the application form you submitted, please return the passport for necessary rectification. Any additional fees required to be paid would depend on the merits of the case to be decided by the Assistant Passport Officer (APO)/RPO. If there is a misrepresentation of facts, then penalty could also be imposed. However, applicants are requested to apply online with the view to ensure that the passports are delivered without any typographical errors since applicants have themselves fed the data.
