My GOVT Id proof has my name as " N V Vineet Murari" according to Indian naming convention [last name] [first name] where as I have registered the exam with the name "Vineet Murari N V",
will that be a name mismatch or is it fine to attempt the exam?

I guess its not a problem. As a precaution you can contact that particular test center well before the exam date and clarify with them (about your concern).

IIRC test center asks to bring several IDs. So, you can prove your name with second ID (driver's license, corporate badge, credit card, etc..).

I agree that seems "close enough". Assuming you are taking the exam in a place where they get lots of Indian people, I'm sure they will be used to it. (Ex: India, the US, etc). If people from India are rare where you live, I would recommend calling the test center in advance. That way they have time to ask the supervisor what to do if needed.

I had taken the certification tests both in India and in US.

Once, I had to face a situation where the test center in India didn't understand an Id I showed (it was an Indian passport issued in US, by Indian consulate in US). The exam center blinked for a while "what is Republic of India?" (people are used to India, not Republic of India, I think).  Also. some centers conduct the exam in open halls (like in a conference room or class room) where there will be dozens of exam takers walking in at different times. It can very distracting in such an environment. So, it is also okay to go to the test center, ahead of the scheduled exam day, and see how the facility is; if possible.
