Birth certificate issue for passport


Hello ,
I am Parth . I am applying for a new passport and I am Indian by Birth (1996).

Now Query is I have Birth Certificate issued by Gram Panchayat in Gujarat (in gujarati language). I heard that lots of people talking about this some says it's acceptable some says they are not acceptable ..

Officials says about birth certificate --->(my birth year 1996) "For applicants born on or after 26.01.89, only Birth Certificate issued by the Municipal Authority or any office authorized to issue Birth and Death Certificate by the Registrar of Births & Deaths is accepted. No other document will be accepted as proof of date of birth."

 

So Can I apply for the passport with a birth certificate given by Gram Panchayat.

You have to get Birth Certificate duly translated in Englilsh through a notary or authorised translators.  By producing the Panchayat certificate, you have to obtain regular certificate from Registrar of Births.   These matters has to be taken up by you by personally discussing with concerned Tehasildar, as you can explain him the facts.

Prior to 1989, the date of birth issued or stated in educational qualification certificates prevail.  If you have DOB noted in 10th class Board certificate, no other document is necessary for applying for passport, as you were born before 1989.

The passport application requires the applicants to produce a date of birth proof and this requires a birth certificate. This proof of date of birth can be provided by several means such as the Birth Certificate issued by Municipal Authority or district authority of the registrar of births and deaths, date of birth certificate from the school last attended or any registered educational institute attended by the applicant and an affidavit sworn by the candidate in front of a Magistrate/Notary declaring date of birth by illiterate or semi literate applicants.

These modes of submission of date of birth proof are applicable for the candidates who fail to produce a valid birth certificate during form submission due to any reason. For the candidates born on or after 26th January 1989 a valid birth certificate issued by the Municipal authority or the District Office of the registrar of birth and death is mandatory for issuing a passport.

Birth certificate must be only from Registrar of Births.  There is no other way.  You have to personally go, submit that Panchayat certificate through Tehasildar to RDO and to obtain DOB from competent authority.  Your VRO can help you in this regard.   There are no short cuts.  The DOB from Registrar in your case is mandatory.

In my considered opinion, the the Gram Panchayat constitutes a "office authorized to issue Birth and Death Certificate by the Registrar of Births & Deaths" and hence the Birth Certificate is valid and should hold good for all purposes. This could be verified from the Certificate itself. Gujarati is among the official languages listed in the Constitution and this aspect need not be a ground for objection esp. if you are applying at a RPO in Gujarat. Anyhow, you have the option to get the certificate in English, if so required.
