I don't understand; your surname should already be there with your name. Where is the question of addition.

You insert a public notice in the Newspaper regarding change in name and then apply to Govt Department of Publication to publish the same in the official gazette. You will also get a copy of the publication of the the notice in the gazette. That will complete the process.
