It should not be a problem from my experiences with such issues in the past.

I assume you got your Schengen Visa from one of the 26 embassies of the European Union States. Have you contracted them and brough this to their attention? I know, that they sometimes will give you a kind of sealed letter (i.e. a letter with a official stamp) indicating this "problem".

No I have not received any such letter

I have just asked the vfs.global bangalore office executive he said it's not an issue as your name is very lengthy they have truncated last 2 letters as there is no space
Could you please help me with the schengen state embassy email id? Or Netherlands embassy email id please

It seems, they do it differnet than in previous years.
If the office in Bangalore (who issued the visa?) said it is okay, I would trust that it is.

And I could not help you with an mail address as I do not know who issued the visa.
