Name change on marriage certificate
My maiden name is Nandita Pathania and after my marriage the Marriage Certificate has the name Nandita Patel. I wish to keep my Maiden name in my marriage certificate. The marriage was registered in 2014 in Delhi. Could you please guide me what will be the process and also if the presence my husband is required for this process as he is not in India? I wish to apply for dependent Visa, but since my passport holds my Maiden name and Marriage certificate has my changed name the Visa office is creating an issue.

Thanks alot for your responses!! If I apply for reissue of the passport and provide marriage certificate for name change will that work? Or do I have to submit affidavits/gazette as well? What will be the easier procedure? Name change in passport or in marriage certificate?
