If there is a minor correction such as spelling mistakes, surname inclusion, initials inclusion etc. you can take the following documents and submit it to the local Birth registrar in Municipality to update it.

  • Request letter from the person whose name has to be corrected

  • Photo ID of Parents

  • Joint Affidavit of Parents

  • Educational document of the Parent whose name has to be corrected

The Registrar, subject to her / his satisfaction, correct / cancel the error by making a suitable entry in the margin without any alteration of the original entry
and shall sign the marginal entry and add thereto the date of correction / cancellation
