Aadhar should have names of Father and Husband

Former Chief Election Commissioner N Gopalaswami said today that aadh card issued by the Authority of India's unique identification should be the name of the father of the woman and her husband's name, in order to avoid the problems of different surnames. 

Gopalaswami said Indians of the south, especially women, have trouble getting their names in the same supporting documents such as PAN card, passport and identity card of the voters. 

"Most of the documents will not have the initial expansion of the documents. The methodology of writing documents must be changed. This will happen to the people of Tamil Nadu, and do not use surnames, but the initials" Gopalaswami told reporters on the sidelines of a function here. 

"Married women usually use the name of her husband as her surname. But, PAN card, you ask for the name of his father. Therefore, the name on the PAN card differ from other documents. There is a need to standardize this. Therefore, the card must have the name aadh both the woman's father and the name of her husband. " 

When asked if he will make a formal suggestion UIDAI authorities, he said, "I'm thinking of making one." 

Former Chief Election Commissioner also has problems getting the address changed PAN card as your passport indicates his name as Needamangalam Gopalaswami, while voter identification showing your name as N Gopalaswami.
