Travel Forums Asia Confusion regarding name change - renunciation India CKGS

I am filing renunciation certificate for family member...CKGS India website and it is asking 'Have you ever changed name' ..she has changed name about 9 years ago and her current Indian passport was issued after that name change ..her current passport says 'CHOKSI AKA SHAH' and on second last page of current passport there is a stamp that says 'this holder was previous known as' and that it says 'full previous name' handwritten.
so one would think that to answer question one should say 'yes' because she has changed her name...BUT when I checked document checklist it says
'For Former Indian nationals, if your name in
your Indian Passport or Indian Government
issued document is different in any way from
the name in the Current Passport, a copy of
ONE of the following documents must be
provided"

so as per document checklist instructions...she does not have to say 'yes' to the question if she has changed her name??
Because her current Indian passport and current US passport have same name accept that US passport has only middle initial while India passport has full middle name.

So what should we choose ...should we say yes to the question if she ever changed her name? ..if say yes ..than they would want documentary proof and date of such change which we don't have.(as it was 9 years ago)
