Sometimes a simple work related to government office can become a nightmare simply because of lack of knowledge about various formalities related to it.
I am sharing my observation related to obtaining a Birth Certificate for new born babies.
i) if the child birth has taken place in Hospital , then the Hospital will provide a basic Birth registration certificate during discharge. This certificate is different from what is provided by MCD and is required to obtain a formal registration certificate.
ii) Along with this Birth Registration Certificate , Visit your nearest MCD zonal office.
iii) Usually there are separate counters marked for Birth Registration. Show the certificate obtained from Hospital , they will provide a single copy of Birth Certificate without Name free of charge.
iv) Take this newly issued certificate .
v) Obtain a Affidavit on Rs.10 stamp paper to include Name on this certificate. (Agent selling such affidavit for Rs. 50 can be easily located near the office premise).
vi) Submit the affidavit on the same Birth Registration Counter. The MCD official will call you back after some days (probably 1 week).
vii) Collect the registration certificate with Name after the told time. You can obtain multiple copies of the certificate. Each copy is provided at a nominal charge of Rs.20.
