Need help: Change of name in Passport: RPO Bangalore
We want to apply for "Change of Name" in my wife's passport as we got married a year back. Both mine and wife's passport was issued from Ahmedabad and we are staying in Bangalore right now. We don't want to change the address in the passport as we are staying in a rented house but just want to change her name in her passport. As per the Bangalore RPO website, one needs to furnish two copies of address proof along with other documents (marriage certificate etc). She does not have any address proof for local address here as Rent agreement is on my name.
So, here are the doubts I have -

I did this 7 years back.
That time I had to submit Marriage Certificate (issued by the Government) and the local Address proof.
The Address proof can be in your name.
Check the Blore RPO site if they accept Rental agreement as Add proof.

A Basic question:
Why do you want to do this? As you haven't mentioned, passport is expiring?
If you have marriage certificate, you will not face any problems for overseas traveling and visa application.
You can always aim for name change at time of renewal.
i am doing the same.

Why bother for "change in name"? endorse marital status in both passports and you're done.
