My wife was known as "KM. GARIMA / Garima Pandey / Garima" before my-marriage & some of her educational-certificates reflect km. garima, some garima pandey & some reflect GARIMA. BUT; from now onwards, i want her name in all the future educational certificates as GARIMA PANDEY MISHRA (i.e., her post-marriage name) is it possible ?
[I have updated her-name in her aadhaar-card also.]
Iam asking this question because, recently i visited a government college for her admission in a POST GRADUATE DEGREE course & the college officials were insisting that i should fill her name as per her 10th-marksheet and continue the same.
First of all, am i insisting on something wrong ?
if not; then should i file an RTI seeking information that - "why can't i use my spouse after-marriage name, to be mentioned in all the future educational documents/certificates"
OR; should i file an RTI seeking information that - "what i need to do to use my spouse after-marriage name, to be mentioned in all the future educational documents/certificates"
KINDLY GUIDE/SUGGEST ME some more alternatives, regarding this issue.
DU students to file RTI over tests
Students of Delhi University (DU) are going to file an RTI (Right to Information) application on Tuesday, demanding the names of officials to be held responsible if an ordinance regarding internal assessment is not implemented by colleges.
According to DU's ordinance on internal assessment, teachers are supposed to give assignments or projects as part of internal assessment. As reported by the Hindustan Times on December 15, students claimed that teachers take class tests in lieu of projects to save themselves the task of checking papers and returning them to students, in a clear violation of the ordinance.
The RTI is also going ask certain "uncomfortable questions" about the university's monitoring mechanism regarding internals, they said.
Youth Task Force, the students' forum that is going to file the RTI application, initiated a signature campaign on Monday against the issue terming the class tests "illegal".
Students from the forum posted themselves at the Vishwavidyalaya Metro station early in the Morning with a huge banner saying "DU says written assignments, then why tests?"
Members approached fellow students and curious passersby to explain
the issue with a copy of the DU ordinance in hand. By the end of a three-hour outing, they were able to collect around 100 signatures on the banner.
"We wanted people to know the issue. Seeing the writing on the banner, several students approached us for more information. The right information is the key to strengthening the campaign," said Erut Narain, a second-year student of Dayal Singh College.
To get the issue highlighted more, the group has decided to hang the banners at various college fests and functions. "We will post ourselves at the fests and collect signatures. This is an issue that affects every student," said Neelima, a first-year student of Hindu College and member of the forum.
Students said that eventually they would take up the case with competent authorities to get the system of "needless class tests" abolished. "We already have a House Examination. Therefore, any other class test is not only illegal but needless as well," said Apeksha, a student of Miranda House and member of YTF.
