Discrepancies in mother's name
My mother's name is Smritilekha Das. When I was in class 9, I made an error in my CBSE registration process and wrote her name as Smriti Das. As a result, my 10th marksheet has my mother's name as Smriti Das. By default, so does my 12th marksheet and others. Unfortunately, this went unnoticed until my graduation. Now, all my educational certificates have her name partially wrong. The problem is, only my birth certificate has her correct name i.e. Smritilekha Das. I tried to fix it but CBSE has a 5-year window to fix errors and I lost my chance by the time I graduated (+2 then +3 years).
In short, except for my birth certificate, all other documents have her name partly wrong and I ran out of time to apply for changes at CBSE.
Now that I am applying for competitive exams, I was wondering if I could use an affidavit "one and same person" stating the discrepancies and that it was a big error on my part. Will it be acceptable? While form fill-up for such exams should I write her name as Smriti Das or Smritilekha Das? Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
