    • Hi Kadambari Kulkarni, even if you want to change only your surname you have to submit the bank all the details documents which are mentioned above.

      Without these you can’t change your name.

      And as per your question, yes you need Gazatte notification as well.

      Hope this helps!

  • Hi, I need to add an initial to my name, I have Aadhaar as proof, will this single document suffice? Also if i place the request, how long will the process take?

    • Hi Meera Mohan,
      You can’t make any kind of changes to your name in ICICI bank account without an Affidavit.

      One of my friend wanted to change her last name in ICICI bank account, she had her PAN Card and Aadhaar card as proof documents but still bank rejected the change and asked for Affidavit.

      So I would say you can’t make any kind of changes to your name.

      Hope this helps you!
