Women in Maharashtra can now use either the father’s name or the husband’s name in all the official documents, while the children will be able to use the mother’s name.

A Government Resolution issued by the Women and Child Welfare Department said, “Children can use either their mother’s or father’s name.”

This is in accordance with the third women’s policy, 2014, cleared by the state cabinet in March.

In case a woman faces problems in exercising the choice, she can complain to the concerned district collector.
