Birth & Death Registration Act

The “Registration of Birth and Death Act (1969)”, was enacted all over India to provide a uniform law for the regulation of registration of births and deaths in India .
The RBD act gives the legal and administrative framework for Civil Registration System (CRS) in India .
The act authorizes the Registrar General and Census Commissioner of India to coordinate the registration mechanism.
The RBD Act has been enforced in all states, with the responsibility of Chief Registrar of Births and Deaths to make necessary arrangements for registration facilities in the entire state and to see that no area is left without registration facilities.
The RBD act comprises of 32 sections, which illustrate the rules, proceedings, process, maintenance of records, the functions and functionaries at national, state, district and peripheral levels to perform birth and death registration

Issuance of Certificate

The registrar designated as per the RBD act is entitled to issue the certificate for birth, death and stillbirth. In ULBs, usually the Commissioner /Health officer is designated to issue birth and death certificate.
The individual who is looking for the certificate has to go directly to the respective municipality, if it is registered within the said time. The RBD Act recommends the issue of the certificate free of charge.
However, municipalities are charging an amount of Rs.10 to 20/- for the certificate as cost of lamination of certificate.
The key issue on the birth and death registration system is that the majority of citizens have not collected their birth/death certificate, even though the occurrence of it are registered by the informant.
Stillbirth means foetal death, where a product of conception has attained at least the prescribed period of gestation.

Importance of Birth Registration

Birth registration provides legal proof for identity, civil status, age, dependency status in the family and a wide variety of rights for an individual. Registration of birth and the issuing of birth certificate are interlinked events. Registration of birth is very important for obtaining the birth certificate. The RBD act clearly specifies that the registrars in the local bodies are required to issue the birth certificate free of charge, on births reported with in 21 days of occurrence. The birth certificate is significant for an individual for personal identification and protection as indicated in the table.

Importance of Death Registration

Proof of death is important for relieving an individual from legal, social and financial obligations. It will be essential for his family members to enjoy the inheritance of property and closing the statutory obligations. Death certificate is crucial in proving the “circumstances of death” in the case of accident, murder and also on availing the benefits of Life Insurance Corporation and other financial schemes. The death certificate is mandatory for availing benefits like dying in harness, family pension and on relieving a person from the muster roll.
