Mother's maiden name on Child Birth Certificate
« on: January 14, 2017, 12:44:45 PM »
I have retained my maiden name in all the official documents even after marriage.
Can i use my maiden name on my child's birth certificate? Government authorities issuing birth certificate in Vadodara, Gujarat are forcing me to use my husband's name after my name in birth certificate mentioning that it is not possible to have maiden name after marriage.
Please confirm if i can use my maiden name in my child's  birth certificate.

If you were an unwed mother, or a divorcee, that could be possible.

Since you have a legally wedded husband, your husband's name is compulsory.

Later on the child can decided whatever he/she wishes after attaining majority.

1) Of late, as amended by the Government of India, the column father's name is to be deleted.

2) “There is no legal requirement for insisting upon the father’s name in the passport,” Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva said while referring to an earlier judgement passed by the high court in May 2016.
