Required documents: Birth certificate

Required documents: Birth certificate

Hi,

This question is directed primarily at individuals from India (or those who are aware
of the conditions in India), but all are welcome to respond.

Regarding the required supporting documents, does the applicant need to produce a
birth certificate mandatorily issued by the local municipal authority from the place
of his/her birth?

Will it be acceptable to produce a hospital birth certificate, and as additional
document(s) of proof, include the high school/college certificate that shows the date
of birth? (The passport already contains all of this information anyways, namely,
date and place of birth, name of father and mother, etc.)

The reason I ask this question is that it was extremely rare to have a municipal
authority issued birth certificate in many parts of India, going back about 30 years
ago. A hospital birth certificate was then perfectly acceptable for school
admissions, and so on. (Of course, the situation today is different and most
children/younger adults have municipal authority issued birth certificates.)

Under the circumstances, does the Canadian Visa Processing Center in New Delhi accept
a notarized copy of the hospital issued birth certificate, along with the high
school/college certificate containing proof of age, in lieu of a municipal authority
issued birth certificate?

Please reply to this newsgroup only. Thanks for your help!

The hospital birth certificate is fine, it should include your parents name,
otherwise you can ask the hospital to provide you an updated birth certificate based
on the record on file.

Gian, Its not. I am currently struggling on the same. The easiest way is to go to the
local court, submit an affidavit stating that you have never applied for a birth
certificate from the municipality, based on that the court or the Tahsildar in
Northern states will issue an order form to Municipal authorities that this fact is
correct and then Municipal authorities will issue a birth certficate. In quite a few
cases it can be in Hindi or any other local language and you will have to
specifically request for an English one. AJ

AJ,

I found this message from Mr. David Cohen on another posting ... you can probably
find this yourself on the newsgroup. I'm sure this gentleman knows what he is talking
about as he is a highly respected immigration lawyer ... and he says that "... a
Secondary School Matriculation certificate should ... be accepted as a substitute".
(Please see attached messages below).

Thanks, BG
