If you have changed your name legally or if there is a spelling mistake of your name in the bank account. Then you can request the bank to change it or correct it. In this guide, I will tell you how you can change name in Standard Chartered Bank account.
I do not recommend you try changing it online. And probably the bank does not allow you to do it online as well. The reason being the name is one of the most important details of the KYC information. So I have explained an offline method that requires you to visit your home branch of the bank.
The bank will take your request only if you have a proper proof document with you. If you are changing your name after marriage. Then you can provide your marriage certificate as the proof document. And in case if you have changed your name legally. Then you can use your legal name change document.
In most cases, the name will be spelled wrong in the account. If this is the case with you. You simply need to provide an identity proof document that spells your name correctly. In all cases, you need not submit the original copy of the document. You just need to submit a self-attested photocopy.

You can also submit a computer typed letter on which you have signed. In case the bank gives you a separate form to fill, then you will have to fill it. While going to the bank make sure you carry the original copy of the document with you. For more information, you can call the customer care of the bank and speak with the bank’s support executive.
