Hello Experts,

Kindly advise me on the below mentioned concern of mine:

All my Educational Certificates, PASSPORT, PANCARD, Ration Card, Voter ID and Financial Documents (Bank Accounts, Fixed Deposits, PPF, Life Insurance Policies, etc) have my maiden name mentioned in them because these documents were issued before my marriage.

Father Name – Kalyan Kanti Ghosh
Full Name - Amrita Ghosh

My marriage was solemnized on Jan 2012 and registered in Kolkata on April 2012. In the Marriage Certificate issued under the Hindu Marriage Act of 1955, my last name got changed to my husband name with a mention of my maiden name as well by using the word ‘nee’.

Spouse – Suresh Kumar Babu
Father Name – Kalyan Kanti Ghosh   
Full Name - Amrita Suresh Nee Ghosh   

Question:
Even though my last name in marriage certificate got changed to Amrita Suresh nee Ghosh but I desire to retain forever my maiden name - Amrita Ghosh in all my documents like passport, pancard, bank accounts etc. Is this lawfully correct?

Question:
Is it possible to revert my name from Amrita Suresh nee Ghosh to Amrita Ghosh (maiden name) in the marriage certificate? If yes what's the procedure for making a correction like this on the marriage certificate?

Thanks
Amrita

Thanks a lot for your response!!!

My marriage certificate has both last names i.e. Firstname   MarriedLastname nee MaidenLastname

Is it correct or it should have only wife's MaidenLastname ?

Thanks in advance
Amrita
