hiding husband name in election form 26

Dear sir,

I filled a petition on d basis of cruilty and my wife is also fille that i am leaving her for money demand (completly false allegation ) and she want to stay with me.

as per court order i am giving 7000/- maintenance. we are fighting this case from 1.5 year.

Now i fought a Parshad (councellor) election, in which a option son/daughter/wife of... she maintioned her father name, didnt mantioned her husband name. she loose in election.

my q is  Is it legally correct to hide her husband name after marriage.



It is not necessary or mandated in any law that a lady has to compulsorily adopt her husband's name to suffix her name after marriage.  She can continue with her maiden name itself ill her life time, she cannot be compelled o change her name by adding her husband's name or his family title attached to her name by removing the existing father's name or title.


There is no legal infirmity in it.  You fight the case in actual merits and dont concentrate on such petty issues.
