Name Change

·        Changing one’s name, adding initials or even just one letter is regular in India, more so than in many parts of the world. We believe in Vaastu, numerology, and it’s common for women from many communities to change their first and last names after marriage.

·        Given how common this is, you would expect the procedure of your name change application to be fairly quick. But it is, in fact, pretty lengthy, with name change forms to be filled out and even requiring a newspaper advertisement.

Even though it is lengthy, though, the procedure for changing your name is quite simple. All you need to do is to understand how it is done, what steps need to be taken, what are the documents essential for submitting the request, and you are good to go. Read the below-mentioned steps to ensure you have everything in place for changing your name to the new initials, as preferred.
