Indian Passport : Surname change post marriage

Hello,

Can someone please advise me on this:

My Indian passport will expire in 2018. Post marriage, I haven't applied yet for surname change (i.e., adopting husbandís surname) and willing to do it now.

Currently my passport name is: FIRST_NAME FATHER_SURNAME

Marriage Certificate name is: FIRST_NAME HUSBAND_SURNAME nee FATHER_SURNAME

Question:

1) Is it possible to include <HUSBAND_SURNAME nee FATHER_SURNAME> as SURNAME in the passport to match exactly with marriage certificate?

2) To apply for surname change and spouse name inclusion , do I need to follow the same process of filling online application of passport renewal at http://passport.gov.in/nri/ ?

Thanks For Your Advise

1. You can have it as any name you want provided you can give valid reasons and documents for it - like marriage.

2. You have to apply for re-issue of passport from the website you have already linked.
