Question
QUESTION: mujhy meri baby ka naam samroj rakhna tha per galti se us k papa ney sana kar diya ab mujhy birth certificate par samroj naam karna he to us k liye kya procedure he pls tell me thank you.

ANSWER: Birth Certificate contains names of the parents only and not that of the baby because baby's name is decided afterwards.Even if you have mentioned any name in it, now it is not possible to change it because the said name was recorded based on your own declaration.However, you may consult the agency which issued it to ascertain whether there is any scope to change it now.Moreover, even a minor's name can be changed by following the Govt. Guidelines in this regard.
