From today, residents under Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) can search and request the Birth and death certificates from any e seva center in Hyderabad.
However, it has to be noted that the registration of either Birth or Death will still be done at the respective Municipal Corporation Offices.
Once the registration is done, you can request for a birth certificate by visiting any e seva center. If the certificate is being taken for the first time, the charge will be Rs.50 and from then for every additional certificate the charge will be Rs.20.
Birth certificates online request
The facility to request your Birth/death certificate through online mode has been there since a long time. Since many users may not be comfortable using computers, the new system through e seva has been arranged.
If one needs to use the online system, just visit the GHMC portal and look for the Birth & Death link under the Services section.
Click on that link and in the following page click on the Search & Request Birth certificate link. Then enter the birth/death range (for example, if your son is born on 3 April 2006, enter something like 1 April 2006 to 1 May 2006), choose circle (and ward, optional), Gender and then click on search button.
The resultant page will display all results under that selection containing registration number, Acknowledgement number, Father’s and Mothers name and Hospital in which the child was born.
Click on the registration number/Acknowledge number (1st column) to request the Birth certificate to be delivered to your address through courier by paying Rs.50 (online).
The process is the same for getting death certificate too.
Update: GHMC soon plans to issue instant birth certificates.
The corporation has been recording births in the city region from 1932 onwards of which most part is already computerized.
During the first phase, the corporation will issue birth certificates for those who are born between 2007 and 2011 immediately. In the next phase, after uploading and double checking all the details, certificates of those who are born between 1957 and 2007 will be made instantly available.
