Application to issue a birth certificate

If someone is born at this age, it’s the duty of his/ her father or mother to register the date of birth to the concerned department as early as possible. These days, a birth certificate is mandatory for admission into a school, or for any job.

So, we, the guardians of our babies, have to apply for the birth certificate to issue in the name of our baby. Here is a sample of how one can write an application letter for a birth certificate.

It is mentioned here that in India, various parts of our country have different rules and regulations for the same. And the address to whom the letter is addressed is different.

So, you just need to have the right information of the authority who has the right authority to issue the birth certificate. You need to address the Head of the authority at the top of the letter and the remaining part of this format will be the same.
