Sub :- Change of father’s name of students of Kendriya Vidyalayas - regarding.
I am to refer to your letter No.F. 14044/6-15/2012-KVS/Bhopal/
In the case of single biological mother who has been either divorced or has lost her husband on account of death etc. the rule position is that before she marries again, she is permitted to change the name of her child. This is permissible In law however she is not allowed to change the name of the child while the father is alive and without his consent.
This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
Deputy Commissioner (Acad.)
