Nilekani to facilitate e-birth certificates


“We were discussing it yesterday over dinner. I proposed it to him,” Dinesh Trivedi, minister of state for health, said on Thursday while inaugurating the Life Science Conclave in New Delhi.

He said birth certificate is an important document and it should be available to people anytime, anywhere. “People should be able to go to a cyber cafe and get a printout of their birth certificate,” the minister added.

About the e-health certificate, Trivedi said this document will have the entire history of the newborn - weight, vaccination, any birth problem and other related information - and all these will be available on the net.
