    Hi Nayan,

    Its possible to remain with previous surname, just include Spouse name in your passport. I did same.

    I applied in hyderabad before my marriage. As i was residing in bangalore, i took my passport, marriage certificate, proof of address(that i'm residing in bangalore)& Hubby's passport copy.

    Once you go to passport office near your location, need to fill form for inclusion of spouse name service, then submit these document of proof. I think you need to pay small amount(i don;t remeber the amount now).

    Once they check your proof, return you back immediately the documents. Your passport will be mailed to your residence address you provided in form.

    Your surname and name will be same. In next page....they will include your spouse name and will be attested by officer .

    hi Gokusha,

    Thank you very much for ur suggestion and for sharing ur experience.
    But i have a doubt, is this procedure still available? and is it same for other states too in india.

    Hi Nayan,

    You are welcome. I think it should be available. Recently my brother-inlaw added his name in my co-sister's passport just some 4 months back.

    Better you check in net also &enquire with others too. When i googled, it says that facility is available in pune too.

    All thebest.

    Hi Nayan,

    As per my knowledge,

    Change of name /endorsement of spouse name requires issue of a new passport booklet.

    I would like to share some more information regarding this-
    For change of surname,fill tjhe "Application Form for an Indian Passport" along with original copy of marriage certificate and submit the prescribed fees.

    Re: adding spouse name in passport

    Hi,

    All u need to do is just fill up the application form, get the copies of your marriage certificate and a copy of your spouse's passport.

    There will be an entry at the back of your passport in the miscellaneous section or there will be an entry in one of the pages.

    Its done in a day, ie. u submit the form in the morn and in the eve they give it to you. I got it done this way at Chennai office.

    Hope this helps,
    Poornima.
