I am from Tirupur in Tamil Nadu. My daughter was born 2 yrs back in 2017 at home and we did not register in any hospital or nursery. So can I get the birth certificate now ?

Yes. You can get birth certificate now.

Any birth or death not registered within one year of its occurrence, will be registered only on an order by a magistrate of the first class after verifying the correctness of the event and on payment of prescribed fee.

Follow the below process to record the birth of your child.

  • Head of the household (where the birth occured) has to inform the Registrar of the concerned area.

  • A court order is also required by a magistrate of the first class or any other officer authorized by the state govt. after verifying the correctness.

  • Late fee of INR 10 needs to be paid.
