The woman told the court that her husband had abandoned her and her daughter and that she was raising the girl and paying for her education.

At the same time, Pothumpon says that in all other official documents, the initials of the mother’s name are the same as the initials. His daughter Kavya is studying at the Kadavur government high school. The Hindu reported that the woman had told him that she was staying with her parents and that her husband had left her earlier. When the boy was admitted to the school, he was given his initials as his initials. The same name is also used in government documents, including the Aadhaar card. The girl said in the petition that her daughter wanted to use her mother’s name and not her father’s. However, when applying for the scholarship, the school authorities asked that the father’s name be the initials and told the boy that this would also be a problem during the scholarship.

In 2018, the Madras High Court ruled that single mothers were not required to reveal the identity of the child’s father at the time of birth registration. The court ruled in favor of the mother of the girl who became pregnant by artificial insemination after the divorce. The court ruled that single or divorced mothers could add their initials to their children’s names. The Tamil Nadu government issued a similar order in 2003.
