    I can’t thank you enough for writing this blog! It made this tedious process so much easier.

    I have submitted the documents and DD as suggested by you, on 13th October.
    By what date should I expect the Gazette to reflect the same?

    Do they send hard copies to my address?

    Also, when I search the Gazette, can I put in my Name as the keyword to make the search faster? Does it work that way?

    Thanks!

  47. Hi Nikita,

    Thanks for your kind words. You must wait until your name change gazette is published. You can contact on the email address of the COP to get a better idea or you can make a call to the Department of Publication. They used to send hard copies about an year ago. But now they just publish it online.
