Abstract: The Institute for Scientific Information, Philadelphia, Pa has kept a provision of accommodating 12 letters for surnames for its publications like Science Citation Index, who is Publishing in Science, etc. This has resulted in mutilation of a considerable number of Indic names. This study was taken up to find out the percentage and category of Indic names, which would be affected if the limit is fixed at 12 letters. The study reveals that about 6% of Indic names are having 13 to 24 letters, amongst which South Indian names come first, followed by Bengali, Muslim and Christian names. If the limit is fixed at 16 letters, only 1% Indic names are affected. Very few Indic names will be affected if the limit is fixed at 20 letters.
