'Approach service centres for certificates'

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has asked the residents of Bangalore to approach the Palike service centres, BangaloreOne centres, joint director (statistics) and health officers to obtaining birth and death certificates.

Palike Commissioner M Lakshminarayana has warned citizens against receiving fake birth and death certificates from middlemen.


“There is a provision for online registration for birth certificates. A unique number will be issued after the registration and the certificate will carry the water mark of the Union government, the State government and BBMP logo,” the Commissioner said.

“The certificates can be signed and stored digitally in the BBMP server,” added Lakshminarayana.

These steps have been taken by the Palike to ensure no fake birth and death certificates are issued.
