Applying for a lost birth certificate is not as difficult as beforeby janardhan r. Affiliate Marketing
Birth certificates are the most important documents an individual could ever require. They are needed for all application processes from preschool and high school admissions to the application processes of documents like ration cards, election cards, PAN cards and others. Some might even consider a birth certificate the first proof of identification an individual might have.
Overall, applying for a birth certificate is not that difficult since more often than not, it is handled by the hospital that aided in the birth, or the nearest Panchayat or Municipality. Most of the paperwork is handled at their end, as long as all the requirements are provided by the parents. There are instances where the family would need more time to gather the details or apply for the rest of the documents, in such situations, they have to handle the paperwork themselves through the Municipality or the website.
The website would be better suited and more convenient of the two options since it allows the applicant to upload all their information without having to leave their homes. This can be done through the website and it allows people to also gather the list of documents that they would need for the process to work. Everything can be handled in about 20 minutes and the birth certificate should not take longer than a week to process.
What happens if you lose your birth certificate?
Fortunately, losing a birth certificate is a lot more common than one would think. Additionally, people would not be forced to go through the entire application process again. There are ways where they can just download the right application and make the change they are looking for online. Other than having the application forms and a list of the documents needed, the website would also handle all the heavy lifting and the changes to be made at the backend to make sure you get a copy of your birth certificate within a week.
Previously, people would have to go to their Municipality and submit an application asking for their lost birth certificate. Before that, they would have to clear their schedule to make this trip. Additionally, this is the building closest to the office where they were born, which means heading back if you moved. After submitting everything, the place would need a couple of days to gather this information and would call you back on another day. This process was more annoying and time-consuming than the current website that seems to solve everything in one go.
Overall, the website is more than capable of handling all birth certificate needs including making changes to mistakes on birth certificates as long as the right information has been provided. In case of human oversight, errors in an individuals name, dates or just general typos, the website will not take more than a few minutes to go through the entire process and have everything sorted out for you in a bit.
