Changes in Birth Certificate - Finally got it

For the first three parts of this series please read
Changes in Birth Certificate
Changes in Birth Certificate - Day 2
Changes in Birth Certificate - Day 3
Finally after 10 days of constant follow up I managed to pick up the birth certificate from the Ward office where I had submitted the completed checked application form. The process in the office is as follows - the birth certificate gets printed here and then goes back to the HUDA building at Tank Bund to get some signatures and then it comes back to the ward office and that is the reason why it gets delayed. Constant follow up is needed. The good part of the whole process was that I did not have to bribe anyone. That's a big step in the right direction. I just hope they make all these processes a lot easier and sleeker. I am sure we can develop as a country much faster if the government got more efficiency into their processes.

Hi, I have a similar but even complex problem. Its like my name and dob both is totally different in my birth certificate. I'm born in 1983 and my parents got birth certificate immediately. But when i was put to school they changed both my name and dob. and ever since then all the records have the new name and dob :( recently i contacted a person who knows about these things, and he told me name can be changed easily by advertising in newspaper and doing some formalities. but he said dob cant be changed. Do you have any idea about this issue? or if anybody else visiting this page please reply. im really stuck.. i have passport, voters id, driving licence, bank account, certificates and everything else on the new dob and name :( please help. I'm from sulthan bathery, wayanad, kerala.

Hi - I have a question, i just got daughter's birth certificate today. Only when i reached home in the evening, i realised that my name or initial is not added to her name.
What can be done to correct this? For eg: her name is Ankita and should now be Ankita Sameer.
Does this require anything major to be done? It is quite good that you had a non-bribe process.

hi sudeep
im in a similar situation like yours. Problem is, my husband's last name is not printed on the BC. Having issue with the passport for my 2 month old baby. i think its the same process now, but e-seva comes in the picture. Im yet to get the printed certificate from e-seva, only then i can apply for the corrections.

i hope mine is done as soon as yous is done.

hey, even I need to make some changes in my birth certificate, infact I have to make 3 changes i.e., my name,my mother's and my father's name. I am completely in a fix now since i have all the id proofs, but no two id's of mine have the same name. Neither my mom's nor my dad's id have the same name that i desire to have on the birth certificate.
I really need to make quick progress because I want the certificate ready for the passport application. Since you know the process, can you address me the solution for the problem? Please, it would help me a lot.

I choose the names I like and registered for my daugther and son names. Now my wife want the names to be changed after two years. Looking at the posts seems difficult to change names. As some one said we can give some money to officials and try it.
This post is so useful and makes a bit of extremely pleasant data. It is the first occasion when I visit your blog, yet I was amazingly dazzled. If anyone looking for the dominican republic birth records then visit our website at

Cricket Grounds in Hyderabad

This is a repost of the article I published on the 10th of Jan, 2008 as I have added a new ground - Lahari Resorts. View Larger Map In this post I will try and update the list of cricket grounds that i know in Hyderabad. The grounds that I have listed till now are MCH Play ground, Ameerpet Francis (Do not have the contact number but go to the ground and ask for him). The charges are Rs. 1100 for the ground. They do not charge for anything more. You get the ground from 9:00 AM to 4:00PM. The ground is small. Welfare Center, Sanath Nagar Dhanraj Babu (+91 9394556356). The charges are Rs. 1100 for the ground. They charge you an additional Rs. 500 for the mat and Rs. 100 for cleaning and drawing lines and stuff. They are supposed to give you the ground from 9:00 AM to 4:00PM but what they do is that they pocket extra money from another team wanting to play and give the ground out to them for the remainder of the day assuming that you won't play for the whole day. So what happened th

Problogger guest post

Today my guest post appeared on . I wrote about 9 Tips to Start Blogging Successfully . Let me give you a bit of a background about where this article originated from. I have been blogging for close to 3 years now but I have been doing it seriously only for the last 2 months. I then analysed what were the things that I should have done in order to have become a successful blogger based on what I have noticed on the ones that have become successful. The final analysis of my study is what I put into that article and it is what I am trying to implement since the last 2 months. Reading the comments it was exhilarating to notice that some of the readers actually thought Darren was writing the post :-). It was also nice to notice that many readers agreed with my analysis and that strengthened my belief that what I have written if followed will work. How did I get to do a guest post on ? A little more than a week ago Darren invited bloggers to do guest pos
