How to Change Name in RBL Bank Account?

If you have changed your name in India legally or if you have changed your name after marriage. Then you can change it in your bank account as well. The banks allow the account holders to change the name. I can’t say the process is simple because there are some documents required. So in this guide, I will tell you how you can change name in RBL Bank account.

The first thing I would like to make very clear is that you can not change your name online. You will have to follow the offline method only. The name is a very important aspect of the KYC details of the account. And that is the reason why the banks don’t allow us to change it online. The bank will verify the change and then if it finds true then your name will be updated in the account.

The bank will take your request only when you have proper documents to prove your name change. If you have changed your name legally then you can submit the Gazette notification. And in case if you have changed your name after marriage. Then you can submit a copy of your marriage certificate. And if your name is misspelled in the account. Then you can submit the document which spells your name correctly.
