I just got married and my wife wants to change her last name to my first name. We are from the state of Karnataka and yet to make marriage certificate. The thing is, she is doing her medical course. She has completed her education and is doing her medical internship which is mandatory as per her course.
I heard that to change the last name, one has to give paper publication, make an affidavit and then go for marriage certificate. Is that so ?
She has drivers license, voters id and ration card (which is with her parents). Her passport, aadhar card, pan card is yet to be done. So we are planning to use the marriage certificate to get them done.
However, my concern is, if all the formalities for the name change are done, after her internship she would have to go to the main university, to get her final certificate. There she might have to enter her name. Since her name in the university is her maiden name, is it ok for her to enter the same name, even though she has made an affidavit stating her name is changed ?
