Registering death of a missing person

We already have a court order declaring the death of one of our family members who is missing since many years. Is it necessary to obtain the death certificate in this case based on the court order or the court order itself can be considered as the death certificate?

Kindly guide. thanks

The the death certificate has to include the exact date of death and place etc. The court issues the order under section 108 if Indian Evidence Act and delclars the missing person as Dead .This certifiacate is sufficient for legal purposes and making claims.
