If death is in the hospital, the attending physician will issue the death certificate stating place, date, time and cause of death. 

If death is at home, the attending family doctor will issue the initial death certificate stating place, date, time and cause of death. If, however, the family doctor is not available, any registered medical practitioner can issue the certificate, after satisfying himself of the deceased’s medical history, treatment given and circumstances leading to death. It should be ensured that the name, qualifications, addresses and the registration number of the doctor are stated on the certificate.ubmit the initial death certificate and the counterfoil at the local ward office and obtain acknowledgement. The final death certificate will be issued a few days later on payment of Rs 10 per copy. It is advisable to obtain sufficient copies in the first instance to meet all the requirements relating to bank accounts, property transfer, investments, etc. 

The original death certificate (computerised) will be issued from the PMC local ward office (Birth/Death department), after 15 days.
