How to Change Name in Kotak Mahindra Bank Account?

If you notice that your name in the bank account is wrong or incorrect. Then you should contact the bank and get it corrected. In this guide of mine, I will tell you how you can change name in Kotak Mahindra Bank account.

Before I started writing this guide, I referred to the official website of the bank. And I found out that this can not be changed online with the help of internet banking or mobile banking app.

The account holder has to visit the nearest branch of the bank with the identity proof document. You need not submit the original copy to the bank.

The bank will ask you to submit a photocopy of the document that’s it. But at the same time, you also need to show the original copy of the document to the bank officials. (for verification purposes)

Here you have to keep one thing in your mind. And that is the bank will update your name only if you have a proper proof document with you.

This change is subject to successful verification of your document by the bank. So before you start the process make sure you have proper documents with you.

If there is a spelling mistake in your name. Then you can use any of your identity proof document that has your name spelled correctly.

In case if you are changing your name after marriage. Then you can use your marriage certificate as the proof document.

And in case you have changed your name legally. Then you can use your legal name change notification as proof of your new name.
