What is the procedure to change or correct my name on my account?

To change or correct your name in your account you will first have to modify the name in the Income Tax Database (ITD). To know how to modify your name, see Why is the name on my Zerodha account different than on the documents I've submitted?.

After the name is updated on ITD, to change/modify your name on your Trading and demat account, we require any one of the following documents along with the account modification form with annexure B duly signed by the holder whose name is being changed, along with self-attested PAN & Address Proof copies.
