Hi, I am 30 years old girl, living in Pune, Maharashtra. My mother is a Hindu and my father is Muslim. They got divorced when I was 5 years old. I am raised by my Maternal uncle (Brother of my mother). and raised as a Hindu girl. I want to legally become Hindu. so that I can marry in Hindu community. Till I get married I want to carry my uncle's name and surname. Can you please advice what I need to do. Do I need to go through adoption route. Thanks! Snehal

There does not appear to be any prerequisite for a change of name. The procedure can be found here: http://deptpub.nic.in/forms/form060720169.pdf.
