This is the general problem with thousands of students ( in CBSE Schools ) who run from pillar to post to get their names, their parents’ name and date of birth rectified. There is a relief for them that the information regarding their names and date of birth can be changed. But for that there are some guidance which needs to be followed.
The students can get their names changed while studying in 9th, 10th, 10+1 and 10+2 classes and even after the 12th classes ( within a period of ten years from the date of issuance of first document).
Steps with documents required for getting the name and DOB changed in CBSE Certificate ?
- First of all the student ( not minor ) or father or mother or any guardian will file a written request which must be forwarded by the HOI. The Written Request must be supported by the following documents –

- Original Affidavit sworn before the Magistrate or SDM or Executive

- Original Copy of SLC of the previous school submitted by the parent or the candidate at the time of admission and must be updated with the desired changes.
- Original Copy of the page of admission and the withdrawal register of the school with the updation and attested by the HOI.
