tatkal passport for my minor son whoes name has been changed

Technical Architect

Hello Sir,

Can you please let me know if it is legally feasible to get a passport for my minor son (aged 6 years approx) on his OLD name.

The case is that after my sons birth I named him and got the Birth certificate on that name.

Later I changed his name. I got the name changed (to a new name) in the Gazzette of Central government. Now he has a new name. (the new name has been used in his primary school)

However I need his passport on Tatkal basis and I got to know (from Passport Seva web portal) that it is not possible for me to apply for his passport in Tatkal scheme as he has a change of name (which is a so called           "Major" change in name as per passport seva portal).

My question is.. If I get (or try to get) my sons passport on Tatkal basis on his OLD name, will there be any legal issue if I get the passport for my son on his OLD name (as I can get the passport in Tatkal scheme?

Basically I do not want to do anything thats illegal.

Thank you.

did you contact passport office.



for minors there is no verification..so apply in new name by giving two paper ad and a notary affidavit and take the passport in new name itself..dont lie to the passport office as they will ask for school bonafide
