And in my aadhar and pan card my father’s name is SUBODH SHARMA. So I want my father’s name to be corrected in 10th,12th and birth certificate. So my father can’t make an affidavit like ”i have changed my name from SUBODH KUMAR SUMAN to SUBODH SHARMA” as the first name is not mentioned in any of his documents.
