"Rajesh Kumar" is treated as a single name and goes in the surname field. The XXX then goes in the forename field to show it's unused.On a passport, a single name will be shown in the surname field, with XXX (i.e. three X's) shown in the forename field. They may also include an official observation explaining the situation.
If the Surname field is mandatory in their system, a change of policy will take more than a year to take effect. The mechanisms of procuring software services in the Civil Service is tortuous (that is putting it very politely). So, don't be in a hurry for a change.ravidhiman wrote:Surname field is mandatory field in their system they cant leave it blank.
If you do not want to do it, be content with "XXX" as your first name. I agree with the Home Office that I doubt that that will cause any complications.ravidhiman wrote:changing name is another painfull process and it may create problem in backgroup verification in case your apply mortgage, loan or bank account etc etc. and you need to give you new name to existing work place and bank accounts and many other places. Everywhere you need change and provide proofs. which i did not want to do.

I recently got the British Passport after naturalization process. The problem I have is,
In my British passport they did not put the given names.
In my indian passport and in all official documents, I have Given names and but no surname.
Given Names : Rajesh Kumar
Sur names : blank
In my british passport, they put given names as XXX
Given Names : XXX
Sur names : Rajesh Kumar
Has anybody faced the same situation? is it the normal thing they do or they made a mistake putting names in passport.
I am thinking it may create problem in future because they put given names as xxx which does not look ok.
