MC officials come forward to clear residents’ confusion

Death, birth certificates under late entries

Tribune News Service

Amritsar, February 27

Confusion prevails among applicants for death and birth certification falling under late entries. Reason: They don’t approach the zonal offices of the Municipal Corporation and directly visit the Suvidha Centre.

The officials of death and birth wing of the Municipal Corporation claimed that the residents who alleged delay or suffering at Suvidha Centres didn’t follow the right path to register death and birth. The applicants for late entry often complain about delay in their registration process.

Dharminder Jeet Singh, Nodal Officer for Death and Birth Certification at the MC said, “Most of the times residents often visit the Suvidha Centre to get register their death or birth. In current cases, hospitals where birth or death occurs or cremation grounds sent their report to the MC. The Suvidha Centres ask MC to provide first copy of certificate, which we prepare manually by verifying the record. Then the Suvidha Centre issues the hologram copies to the applicants”.

But in the late entry cases, the applicants have to get the first copy from zonal office of the MC.

“Though the system is online and residents observe that there is no need to visit the MC office but we have to verify the record before issuing the first copy. So applicants have to get first copy from zonal office of the MC. We prepare it within 7 days after getting application. So to avoid delay and suffering, the applicants have to choose right path”, said Nodal Officer.
