How to apply for birth certificate?

Many forms issued by the government are complicated. Inspite of the processes being quite simple, a common man often ends up paying hefty bribes to the babus just to get the work done. One such situation is issuing of the birth certificate. Here’s a small write up on how to receive a birth certificate in simple steps.

Since 26th January, 1989, the only birth certificate accepted as legal is the one issued only by the municipal authority or the office of the registrar of birth & death. Here is how it is done-

  1. Purchase a form by submitting a written application to the tahsildar, requesting him to give permission to issue your birth certificate. The cost of the form is around Rs 20-30.
  2. If possible, the applicant’s father should declare the birth date and place along with his signature.
  3. The father and two neighbours must provide an affidavit.
  4. The secretary must give permission to make the birth certificate.
  5. The patwari (village accountant) must give permission to make the birth certificate.
  6. Submit the form to the municipal authority or the office of the registrar of birth & death.
  7. The birth certificate will be provided within half an hour.
