The wife, who is in the service of Government of Gujarat after purchasing a Non - judicial Stamp Paper went to Notary Public. There a document is created, in which facts are stated about her marriage with her husband on such a date and further stated that after that marriage, her maiden name was changed from so and so to so and so. The contents are truly stated.
But, the wife has forged the signature of the husband, without his knowledge and consent.
Whether the said act of wife tenamount to a "forgery", particularly, punishable under Section 463, 465 and 471 of the Indian Penal Code. Whether she is also liable for Departmental Inquiry, as a Govt. servant. Kindly guide. Thanks in anticipation.
