My son was born on 16/10/1997. However, the birth was registered a few years later by submitting an affidavit and due to some confusion the date of birth was entered as 16/10/1996. Birth certificate was not demanded at the time of his school admission and there we entered dob as 16/10/1997. However, birth certificate was demanded when we applied for his passport and we had to give dob as 16/10/1996. Now his passport bears dob as 16/10/1996 while educational certificates bear dob as 16/10/1997 and this has become a problem in getting his study visa.
Is there a way through which I can get his dob corrected on birth certificate and passport? I shall be grateful for your valuable advice.
