Sub.: Correction of Spelling Error in Name
Ref: Savings Account No. ..........................

Dear Sir/Madam,

I recently opened a savings account bearing number ............... in your esteemed bank at ............. branch. I thank you for opening my account with your bank.

Today, while going through the bank passbook and cheque book, I noticed that my name has been erroneously entered in the records of the bank for my account. There is a minor spelling mistake which needs to be corrected immediately.

Erroneous name appearing in bank's records: Mr. ........................
Correct name which needs to be changed to: Mr. .........................

I am enclosing herewith the self-attested copies of my Aadhar card and PAN card as an evidence of the correct name, which I had also mentioned in the application form for opening a savings account.

Kindly do the needful in this regard and communicate once it is done.

Thanking you!

Yours faithfully,
