Question :

I want to know if there is any Act or Law which enables an individual to change his/her name? I have done my Graduation and when I passed my Secondary School, my parents changed my name as my earlier name had a bit of heavy impact on me. Everyone calls me from my new name but the issue is we haven’t change any of the document.

Its a mistake from our side but now I want to change my name in my School, College & University documents. I have checked with many people and everybody has said its a court matter. The ratio of Court Decree is very rare.

Can anyone help me here? Thanks!


  1. Yes, It’s your right to change your name, court decree is mandatory for the change of name. Court ll pass the decree without any objection, no need to worry.
