Process For Getting Birth Certificate With Name

Adding to our Indian govt category, this post is a guide for getting a birth certificate from MCD offices in Delhi.

Getting a birth certificate issued for your baby is the first legal process you undergo as a parent. And mind it, its not a cakewalk. Following are some main points you should be aware of before you start the process.

  1. A birth certificate is not the same as a birth slip. When a child is born, the hospital issues a birth slip. This slip is used as a proof to get the birth certificate from the municipal corporation office (MCD in my case). The birth slip itself can not be used as proof of birth anywhere except in getting a birth certificate issued. I have met people who believe that the birth slip itself is a birth certificate and do not bother to get one issues by municipal corporation.
  2. There are two kinds of birth certificates issued by the MCD. One with the baby name and the other without the baby name. I would advise everyone to get a birth certificate with the baby name printed on it as it is required for the school admission these days and many schools have stopped accepting certificates without the name.

So, coming straight to the process, following are the steps you need to follow to get the birth certificate from MCD, Delhi.

  1. Firstly, you need to find out the relevant MCD office for getting your certificate. The office you need to visit does not depend on the area you live in but the area where the baby was born. For ex, I live in West Delhi but my baby was born in Pitampura, Delhi. So, I got the certificate from MCD, Rohini office.
  2. Verify the work timings of the MCD office you are visiting. Strangely, different offices have different rules. For Rohini office, following are the timings
    1. Token issue:
      1. Monday to Friday :8 A.M. to 11 A.M
      2. Saturday: 8 A.M to 10:30 A.M
    2. Documents receiving time:
      1. 8 A.M to 12:30 P.M
  3. Documents required:
    1. If you wish to receive a birth certificate without name, you just need to take the receipt issued by the hospital and you’ll get the birth certificate. The rest of the process is not required in this case. However, we recommend getting the name on the certificate for the reasons mentioned above in the post.
    2. If you want the birth certificate to have your child’s name, following is the list of documents required. Attested copies of each of these along with the originals are needed.
      1. Written application from any one parent to the MCD officer on plain paper specifying the birth details of your child. Format here.
      2. Photo ID proof of both parents.
      3. Address proof (If not same as photo ID proof).
      4. Proof of birth. In case of new born, take the receipt provided by the hospital. In case you already have a birth certificate without name, take it as a proof of birth.
      5. An affidavit specifying the birth details. The content of the affidavit can be found here.
      6. In case you are trying to get a birth certificate of a child older than 3 years, take a copy of child’s ID proof as well.
  4. You’ll get the birth certificate within 21 days of applying.

All the best for your application process.

    • They do mention on the birth certificate application template that you should not change the name once the birth certificate is made. As far as I know, this needs to be done through the Zonal SDM office now. You’ll need to apply to the SDM office with relevant documents and affidavits. This certainly is not a case of birth registration. I have not gone through this process and hence will not be able to guide you. Thanks

      1. Ask any of your friends to enquire at the MCD office that is applicable in your case.
      2. She can go and get the process and documents listing.
      3. Then, you can visit Delhi and apply (if required).

      Keep us posted as well. It will help other readers. All the best. 🙂

  19. You need 4 things to get your child’s name entered in an existing birth certificate:
    1. Application to Sub-registrar for entering the name. Format linked above may be used.
    2. Photocopy of existing birth certificate without the child’s name.
    3. Photo id proof of either of the parents.
    4. A photocopy of the application (1 above) to be used as a receipt.

    The birth certificate will be issued after 15 days of submission.
