Name change in government office documents is a task left aside due to negligence or lazyness and Delhi Jal Board is no exception; however its a fairly simple and straight forward application process.
This document describes procedure to apply for “Name Change – Meter Connection” in Delhi Jal Board Department.
- Form: Duly filled form. Download.
- Application: An application written to the officer of your region requesting name change.
- ID proof: ID proof of applicant. (Passport/ Election ID/ Aadhar Card etc)
- Address proof of applicant. (Passport/ Election ID/ Pan Card etc).

Once your application is submitted at the nearest office, it may take up to 2 billing cycles for completion of request. I would suggest you to do a follow up against your request to track progress.
