If there is a minor correction in name of the mother such as spelling mistakes, surname inclusion, initials inclusion etc., you can take the following documents and submit it to the local Birth registrar in Municipality to update it.

  • Request letter from the person whose name has to be corrected

  • Photo ID of Parents

  • Joint Affidavit of Parents

  • Educational document of the Parent whose name has to be corrected

The Registrar, subject to her / his satisfaction, correct / cancel the error by making suitable entry in the margin without any alteration of the original entry
and shall sign the marginal entry and add thereto the date of correction/cancellation.
