A.Hello,
The procedure for changing the name on educational certificates is more or less similar to the procedure of legally changing your name.

The process involves 5 major steps:

Affidavit Submission
Ad in Newspaper
Gazette Notification
Verification
Approval
First, you’ll have to create an affidavit for a name change with the help of a local notary. You will be required to clarify why you wish to change your name.

Next, you must publish the name change in at least two local newspapers. One in an English daily and the other in a regional journal. This is to ensure your new name is known to the press.

Additionally, remember to keep copies of the newspaper with you for future reference.
Once it’s published, you should then get it notified in the official gazette of the state in which you reside. This can be done by filling out the deed changing name form from the gazette office. Moreover, don’t forget to take duplicate copies. Submit the copies to the office for publishing in the Government press for gazette notification

Now comes the part where your documents will be verified by the Department of Commerce and the Transport secretary. For this, you will need to send
A letter to the secretary stating that you want to change your name and request him/her to allow.
The deed changing name form.
At least 2 copies of the local newspaper that published your name change
Attested copy of the affidavit
A copy of your present identity (PAN card, voter ID card, passport, etc.).

After receiving approval from the secretary, you will have to submit it to the local gazette office: https://egazette.nic.in/. You will also have to pay a fee to get it published in the newspaper.

Having changed your name officially, now you can approach the educational institution and inform them about the new name. It would be helpful to visit the college administration office personally. Once you submit the documents ascertaining the change of name, then it’s only a matter of time before it gets incorporated into your educational certificate.
