Changes in passport details

I am an Indian having residence permit in Kuwait. Currently, I am on my vacation in India and would like to make the following changes in my passport from here since the unintentional differences in various documents makes difficult to deal with government offices here in India.

Correction in name
Correction in DOB
Correction in present address
Correction in father’s family name

Could you please advise what happens to my residence permit in Kuwait, will I be able to re-enter without any hassle and what should I do once entered to make correction in Kuwait accordingly with my residency, driving licence, etc.

Name withheld

Answer: In as much as you produce both the old and new passports we don’t believe you will face any problems. You should however swear and affidavit endorsed by the Indian Foreign Ministry and the Kuwaiti Embassy saying that you made the changes to the details in your passport and reasons for those changes.
