Yes. An affidavit needs to be prepared for name change. 2. An announcement should be published in the newspaper. 3. A notification should be published in the Gazette of India regarding the name

Whether current name affects your career or standing? How can you propose to change the name of your father? Even for the change of name adding alias your father has to get gazette notified. It is advisable to consult a local prudent lawyer for better appreciation of facts/documents, professional guidance and necessary proceeding.

Your father needs to prepare an affidavit stating that he is known by both the names and now he would like to keep and be known by the name as so and so alias so and so. This affidavit may be prepared on a Rs. 100/- non judicial stamp paper and duly notarised. After that issue a public notice to this effect in a local newspaper. Then attach the copy of the affidavit and the newspaper press release to the application to be submitted to the government press seeking gazette publication along with other requirements that may be notified by the authority concerned. In case of any doubt in this regard you may take the assistance from an advocate is having the knowledge of this subject matter.
