A couple wants to register their child's birth in India, the birth registration of the child has already been done in UK as the couple are UK resident. The wife is having Indian Passport whereas the Husband has a UK passport.
The age of the child is 7 years and the child has still not acquired or applied for any Passport or nationality as yet.
The consulate in UK when the child was born 7 years ago had refused to register the child's birth by giving reason that as the birth registration has been done in UK,it is sufficient and hence not required to register birth in India, they did not help nor gave written reasons on their letter head, they also told to contact lawyer in India if they can do something.
As per the law, since the mother is having Indian nationality her child is also eligible to acquire Indian citizenship through her mother and get the birth registration done. It is very much required incase the family decides to move to India and take school admissions, Aadhar card etc for the child.
Is there anyway birth registration of the child can be done by declaration, court procedure or any other legal procedure in India. The couple are unable to jointly travel however the husband alone can visit India for short time if required.
