OCI Misc services.

Post by gainvidya » Mon Jan 07, 2013 12:40 pm


I got my 9 month old childs OCI document. While filling up the detail her surname got repeated.

It is
Surname: <Surname>
Given Name : <Name> <Surname>

Do I need to get this fixed?
Surname is additionally repeated in the given name. I tried to fill online application for OCI misc service but before proceeding it pop out with the message "It is not mandatory to change OCI documents, However if desired you can apply for Misc Services". Would that mean I just need to fill the form and and do not need to visit my nearest indian embassy?[/quote]

OCI Misc services - Change of Name

If you need changing any details on OCI, you must fill up the online form and submit to nearest embassy / consulate.

The message is intended for the fact that if you got a new passport, you needn't apply for OCI as you can carry new + old passport + OCI card.

Please clarify further with OCI section. For London,

For OCI Unit - Delhi, contact:
