Now, i have to renew my passport with correction of name and my date of birth is of 1993 which means i have to attach my birth certificate with passport application but my name in birth certificate is abdur which i want to change as abdul in passport....

I dont have computerised online version of birth certificate but the old one which muncipal coorporatoin use to issue.....

Note:I travelled few times to saudi when i was minor with my name as ABDUR....... if i change my name in passport will i face any problems in future?
After engineering i want to go to usa for further studies.......

Keeping all the above mentioned points in mind..please help me out...what should i do.....

Any kind of help and sugesstion is appreciable...

Thanking you....

If your name as per Birth Certificate is SYED ABDUR RAHMAN BAKHTIYAR, then legally THAT is your name. Its your Certificates and other docs that have the wrong name and you need to correct them to your CORRECT name. The passport can be renewed as is.

If however you really need to change the name to SYED ABDUL RAHMAN BAKHTIYAR to match your other docs and certificates, then it becomes a CHANGE OF NAME. Yes, it is a Change of name even though only one letter is changing, it changes the whole name and meaning. Check with a lawyer how to get a change of name done. Once completed, apply for the passport and clearly mention the Old passport number and that you have changed your name.

It is a full change of name, not correction in your birth certificate. Your Birth certificate will remain the same unchanged, you will need to have a Document/affidavit of Change of name whenever you have to present your birth certificate.

one of the passport agent suggested me to get the computerised version of birth certificate that will ease the process of applying passport... and he said name can be changed in new birth certificate.. is that really possible???

Please remember you have two documents - Birth certificate and Passport issued in your legal but undesired name. That will complicate matters.

You can get any document issued by any office of the govt in India under the right circumstances. That does not make it correct. The Agent will give you a solution that he can deal with, not one that is correct. In your case your Legal name is what appears in your Birth Certificate and expired passport. You can of course change it, and the process is well established for "Change of name". That is the correct way for you to do. Beyond that, your wish. By all means of course take expert legal advice or ask the PSK staff what is the best way to go about it.
