Dear Sir / Madam,

A child always adopts his / her father's name and surname by birth; a male child never ever changes his name during his entire lifetime, a female child adopts her husband's surname after her marriage. So your real surname ought to be S Chakraborty which may be mentioned on your Birth Certificate and also your School Leaving Certificate. A gazette notification and advertisement may be given to establish your real name, in one English and one vernacular newspaper.
