Many students nowadays accompanying with parents while collecting school certificates etc., As they are going to the schools with friends the possibility of cheking such things are less as they playfully got the certificates and return to home. Later on applying to other courses only they realize the error. The do not know the impact in the error and they do not know that the name,father's name,date of birth will be just copied from the basic certificate of ssc by subsequent authorities by believing that they are correct. I have seen during my service that one candidate gave his application with the name of 'subramonian', on suspicion I asked him whether subramanian or subramonian. He told that this name is subramanian only but school authorities wrote as subramonian and the same is continued since then without any botheration.
Name,father's name,Date of birth are the basic details which required till our last breath for anything to be proved and they should be similar and a correct one in all documents. The school certificate for seniors and birth certificates for youngsters become a valid one. As the date of birth is deciding matters in one's life till his end,much care should be taken in the beginning itself. School certificate,college certificates,aadhaar,Pan card,voter Id, driving license should tally each other. You immediately approach in person to the college authorities and get corrected. No correspondences will yield good result rather than personal approach. Your delay will make the matter more delay.
The name,father's name surname etc., should be get verified even at the stage of collecting from school leaving itself as the same become base documents for the further studies as well for employment or anything.
