Thank you both very much. Somebody told me if I go ahead with the OCI then my chances of getting a UK govt based job will be next to nothing.

My cousin has got her surname changed through HCI and she reckons it was painless. Prepare an affidivit and get name changed in the passport.

I would suggest, it is always better to get it changed through Indian authorities, if you intend to return India/give-up British nationality in future.
