    Is there any procedure to rectify my name in the passport through online or I have to visit the passport office?

    I had applied for the passport last month. While giving my details during the verification there was a spelling mistake in my name. I want to rectify this mistake. How should I do that? Can I do it online or it can only be done in Passport Office? What is the procedure to get my name correct in my passport? Please suggest.

    Hello,


    Well, I had similar experience about 6 years ago with my date of birth. You should visit the regional passport office and talk to the officcials.They
    will ask you to fill another form with your correct name allong with some id proof. You have to submit the form to the counter and they will give a
    number. After a stipulated period of time you will get your passport from the passpot office. It is not a big deal many people have similar problems
    with their names,date of birth etc. Don't worry all you have to do si to visit the passport office to sort out the issue.

    Bye,

    Whether you apply online or offline you need to go to the passport seva kendra for the same because online they only give the appointment and you need to visit the nearest passport seva kendra for the further procedure.
    So yu want to rectify the name in the passport then you need to take the old passport with you and write and application that your name has been wrongly written in the passport so you want to change the name.
    After that give that application to the passport office officer he will tell you the necessary details related to the procedure for the same.
    If he not able to give you the details then you need to go to the regional passport office for the same because there passport will be processed .
    So just follow the steps and find the solution for the same because its just a procedure that you need to follow.
    After all government needs to help you for the same.
