SIr, I have changed my name from Bikas kumar Pandey to Vikas Pandey through proper affidavit. I have produced Affidavit, PAN card, Driving License (with new name Vikas Pandey), Gazette Notification to the ICICI Bank to update my new name in PPF & Saving Accounts. They have updated the same in my saving account but not ready to make changes in PPF account. They told me that change of name in PPF Account account is only possible in marriage cases. Your valuable suggestion is required … Thanks.
In your case it is very much possible. Refer this below clarification and show them the highlighted lines.
Change of name of depositor:- (1) When a depositor changes his name, e.g. on adoption or otherwise or in the case of female depositor, on marriage, the depositor should be required to intimate the fact in writing to the post office and produce the pass book of the account. The intimation should bear the depositor’s signature with the old as well as with the new name, and the depositor should also be required to sign a fresh application form with the new name. The depositor’s signature as written with the old name on the intimation should be compared with the specimen on record. The depositor’s new name should be written clearly in red ink in the pass book and the ledger card above the entry of the old name which should be penned through in such a manner as to leave it still legible. The corrections in the ledger card and the pass book should be supported by the entry “Vide depositor’s intimation dated _____” which should be initialed and dated by the Postmaster. The pass book should then be returned to the depositor. The number of the account should be written at the top of the intimation which together with the old application card/form should be kept in a guard file”.
