Booking a Name Change Advertisement in Newspapers

newspaper classified ad

People may want to change their names for any of many reasons – because of marriage, change of vocation, astronomy, difference between an erroneous school record and present reality or even a whim. Such a change of name can only be formalised through an advertisement for this purpose in a newspaper. Such an ad is actually a public notice ad and is considered sufficient to stand legal tests.

For this purpose, the first step to be taken is to get an affidavit prepared by a notary public or anything similar which can stand up to legal scrutiny. This document or its photocopy must be produced at the time of placing the ad in the selected newspapers.

The second step is to select two newspapers – one in English and the other in Hindi or any vernacular language to avoid in misunderstanding from the spelling of the name. Therefore, for example, a Bengali resident of, say, Ghaziabad can choose the Delhi or even Kolkata editions of The Times of India as well as the Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika in Kolkata to place the ad.

To actually book ad in a newspaper one must take the time and trouble to contact the newspapers concerned, get their rate cards to work out a budget, pay the publication and hand over the material to be published.
