  1. You need to contact the bank, they will tell you the correct procedure. I imagine they will want the name to match the one on your official goverment documents.


  2. Make a affidavit for change of name & get it signed by public Notary ,enclose this with a application to branch manager & it will suffice,Since U have this problem in many banks ,talk to each bank manager if he accepts photo copies then this will do,A news paper Advt for change of name might also be needed,Ur branch manager will advise U on this


  3. First of all you need to make an affidavit of the new name then submit the copy of affidavit to the bank. Then the bank officials will change your name from your bank account and cheque book.


  4. First get your name changed completely as to what you want. Take the help of a notary. He will handle this. Once the formalities are over go to the bank with the application for name change. submit a copy of the affidavit and also you passbook and the cheque book you are holding. The bank will do the needful.
