I want to know the procedure of adding Surname for the students appearing in class IX exam this year (2014). In the beginning of the session we were told that you can submit a copy of passport where surname is added and that proof is enough. But now the school authorities are asking for a long procedure ie. declaring in a news paper, Govt Gadget etc.....

I would like to have answer from Authorized persons of CBSE only and with a document that specifies the requirements.
