We adopted a 15 day babygirl from a relatives friend and followed the following procedure
a) dattak ceremony on 15th day.
b) adoption deed registered within 30 days.
c) then filed petition in the city civil court and obtained order in approx. 9 months.
d) approached Municipal Corporation (Mumbai) for Birth Certificate with the adoption deed and the Court order copy.
The BMC refused the Birth Certificate with the reason that ......
The order given by court says the word 'Birth certicate be issued' and they want it 'Birth certificate be re-issued'. I repeat 're-issued' in place of 'issued'.
My contention is that we had never earlier taken any birth certificate in either the biological fathers name and also mentioned the same in the petition filed in the court.
The BMC says that whether we had taken the birth certificate earlier or not (is not there concern). Presently it has already been issued in the name of the biological father and it will have to be re-issued in the name of the adopting father mother. Hence the word 're-issue'.
I want to know - what will be the correct way forward.
As an adopting father - I dont understand what is my fault and how this will affect anyone ? Am I doing anything wrong ? How does a common man handle these kind of admin issues ?
Request learned ones - kindly guide and put a light on this. Will be very helpful.
