How to get online birth and death certificates in Bangalore?

In India to get any certificate from Government offices is one of the hilarious task. But your kid’s birth certificate or your family members death certificate are so important that for kids school admission or for all future financial claims you need these two certificates.

Why I am writing only about Bangalore?

Recently BBMP (Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike) came up with idea of issuing it online so easily and conveniently that it totally avoids any middlemen interference in getting birth or death certificates. So I found this to be unique and interesting.


Importance of Birth Certificates in India-

This is one of the important certificate which gives information such as  when the kid was born, gender of kid, place of birth and parents name. This actually determining certificates of Indian citizenship. This certificate will be useful at the time of school admission, college admission, hospital benefits, licenses of any kind, while applying for Government grants, a legal documents from the Government, while buying any financial products, while getting employment, for establishing the age or while obtaining certified documents such as Voter ID, Driving License, Marriage Certificate, Passport or PAN Card etc.

It is mandatory now to register birth status according to law of “Registration of Births & Deaths Act, 1969”.  You need to register with the concerned Government organization within 21 days of birth.

Importance of Death Certificates in India-

This is the document which gives proof about the death and includes date and time of death and cause of death too. This is a necessary document to establish the fact of death for relieving the individual from social, legal and official obligations. This enables for easy settlement of property inheritance and to authorize the family to collect insurance, mutual funds, Bank FDs or any other financial assets or benefits.

Even this document is also mandatory according to law of “Registration of Births & Deaths Act, 1969” and need to be registered within 21 days of death.

 How you get birth or death certificate now in Bangalore?

Your child’s birth certificate will now onward will be issued at hospital itself. Parents can collect it before clearing the hospital bills.  But issuing of birth certificate in hospital was initiated from 1st Feb 2014,  e-transfer of date from hospital to BBMP for the speedy issuance of certificate was launched from 10th Feb 2014.  Earlier it used to take a week time to get birth certificate.

All the hospitals were given user name and password to enter the data in NIC software,  where they can register the details of birth or death. Data will be then verified by BBMP official online. Once the data approved then the birth or death registration is printed out. Hospitals then collect it from center and hand it over to parents (in case of birth) or to relatives (in case of death, after 3 days of death).

BBMP included some security features to avoid misuse of the same. Each certificate will pre-printed with the emblems of Union or State Govts and BBMP emblem as watermark. This certificate will have serial number also 24-digit security code and three dimensional high-security hologram.

If someone dies in home instead of hospital, then the relatives would have to produce a doctor’s certificate and the receipt from the crematorium or burial ground to apply for death certificate.

As of now around 1,480 hospitals have been provided this facilities with unique password to each hospitals.  There is a registration center in each assembly constituency of Bangalore. Apart from these five  hospitals-Vanivilas Women and Children Hospital , Victoria hospital, Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital, Ghousia Hospital and KC General Hospital,  have also been declared as registration centers

If you register birth or death within 21 days then this facility is free. But if it extended more than 21 days then Medical Officer Health, BBMP will certify it for a fine of Rs 50.

How to do corrections?

BBMP set up 27 registration centers across  Bangalore. You can reach them and get corrections done.

  45. Hello Sir,

    My son born on 29th January 2011, has the name Nakul Borgaonkar. But we want to change his name to Nakul Swapnil Borgaonkar(add his father’s name as his middle name). This birth certificate was issued at Mayo Hall BBMP. I have been making the rounds for his name correction but in vain. As per the BBMP only the parents ID proofs and a joint photo affidavit and the applicants ID proof is necessary. I have been asked to submit our marriage certificate as my ID proof and have been told no other ID proof will suffice for my identity. Whereas my husbands photo ID was sufficient. Now after I submitted all the demanded documents they still rejected it saying my husbands documents have his name as Swapnil Shekhar Borgaonkar, whereas the birth certificate has Swapnil Borgaonkar.
    Please tell us how to go about it.

    Thanks & Regards,

      1. Yes Sir, Unfortunately I realize that. And to confirm that, there was a man who offered me help as well.
        The only reason we are running pillar to post is because the school is demanding this name correction.

  53. raghavacharyulu kv

    Can you please advise me where i can get the birth certificate for my son born on 07-08-1995 in command hospital bangaluru. I have only the certificate issued by the hospital.

    now it is required for applying for passport.

    kindly advise.

  54. Hi, I am shakeel from Pune. I recently applied for passport (at PSK Pune) but my application has been put on hold at Verification stage “B”. Reason – Original birth certificate that I presented is issued (duly signed and sealed) by REGISTRAR OF BIRTHS AND DEATHS, AIR FORCE STATION PUNE (as my father was in Air Force and I was borne in SSQ – Sick station qurter ). However, the verifier didn’t accept it and says that he will only accept birth certificate issued by PMC (Pune municipal corporation). I find that the birth certificate submitted has all the details and is as per the requirement asked for birth certificate in document advisory. Could you please tell me if the birth certificate I have mentioned is valid.

      1. Thanks Basavaraj, but the question here is about the validity of a document. The document advisory clearly says that “Birth Certificate issued by the Municipal Authority or any office authorized to issue Birth and Death Certificate by the Registrar of Births & Deaths is acceptable”. If it is so than why should one reproduce a document which is already valid that too without any justification. Is it not the responsibility of govt officials (in this case the psk verifier) to be well versed with the document advisory before scrutinizing documents. Because such un justified requests will only make system more complex and time consuming.

  55. My daughter is born in Andhra Pradesh and I am a resident of Bangalore.

    Hello Mr. Basavaraj. I think I have a peculiar case here. Please see if you can help me out. Thanks in advance.

    My uncle expired in Bangalore, and the death certificate has been sent to us by some local person along with the body. But as we are from Andhra Pradesh, the local authorities are asking for the death certificate in either English or Telugu. We tried to contact the Kannada house situated in Andhra Pradesh, who translated the death certificate for us, but the local officials are insisting on a original from THE REGISTRAR OF BIRTH AND DEATH of Bangalore. With some guidance and advice from a government official in AP., we wrote a letter to the registrar of B&D, (Bruhat, Banagalore Mahanagarapalika, whitefield subdivision-560066) stating our problem and requesting them to send a translated copy in English and we would pay for it. The address mentioned above is the address we have on the issued death certificate. But the courier was re-sent back to us, stating no one answered the door/ the address has changed.

    We have no idea how to know the right address or who to write to, now. Kindly advice in this regard. I would be very grateful for your assistance. Thank you. My phone:09246676495

      1. Ashwani Chaitanya

        Mr. Basavaraj, is it possible to atleast locate what BBMP offiee i should write to, please. As i do not have any friends over there nor do i speak kannada, its being very difficult to know the address to who i should write to.

        The address to which i already sent the letter has been redirected to my home instead of the new address of the BBMP and it is a bit urgent that i need to locate where i should write to.

        If you can just provide me the address, it be great as i can re write to the correct BBMP.

        Firstly i am not understanding what BRUHAT is. Is it the name of a place or a office? Secondly, if the address is wong, how can i find the right address of that particular place, because i do not understand these names.

  80. Hi Sir

    My daughter was born 19-Nov-2013, and we took the birth certificate. So unfortunately in her birth certificate my middle name was missed out, and in my wife’s name the Sir name was missed out.

    Based on the check list of documents attested by notary, I went to the BBMP main office at majestic, but they refused to take the forms as they don’t entertain the name corrections in the birth certificate. Later they asked me to go to utility building bbmp office at MG road, there also no one was able to help me.

    Please let me know how to get this small correction in my name & my wife’s name done in my daughters birth certificate. It is really frustrating as I am trying by all means since last 6 months but no luck.

  86. HI Sir,

    My daughter was born on April 08 2015, birth certificate was issued in hospital on 3rd day itself but name was kept blank. Can you please guide me the process to get her name in birth certificate.

    I also went to BangaloreOne office as directed by the hospital. They asked me to go to the Utility Office in Mayo Hall. On asking them the reason for going there, they replied that they do not have “Edit Option”[I did not understand what actually they mean by that !!!] . Well, then as directected i went to the Utility office in Mayo Hall. There they told me to now, the slots are till 2014, from Jan 2016 onwards they will be starting for the 2015 borns. Strange !!! I really don’t understand the exact process. Can you please shower some light on this?

  143. Hello Sir,

    My daughter was born on Feb 6,2015 , I have the hospital issued Birth Certificate , I went to one of the Bangalore One center which was near to my home , they said they will issue the certificate but it would be around Rs.300 for 3 Copies(without inclusion of baby name), whereas it would charge around Rs.1000 for inclusion of name. Are Bangalore One over charging for the certificates? How much it would cost in BBMP Office?

    Looking for your help

    1. Prabhakaran-Charges are already discussed. For revised charges you can visit BBMP site. But I am sure that they asking you more. Simple to bring the truth is, say them that you are ready to pay Rs.1,000 but you need full receipt. If they not agree then say a word that you are going to inform it to Lokayukta. They bend easily…but need someone to make them bend.

    2. Prabhakaran for sure they are charging you more. The nominal fee is within 100 rs for 2 copies with or without name. Rs 10 for every extra copy. Please visit nearest BBMP office, they shall provide you further details.

  144. Hello Sir,

    Thanks a lot.


  145. Sir,

    I want death certificate of my mother from BBMP. She expired in hospital at Bangalore. But my Late father’s spelling is different from actual as mentioned by Hospital’s death certificate. The BBMP people are harassenting me and they are not giving me mother’s death certificate. Even the hospital has given correct spellinbg of my father in their duplicate death certificate. Are the BBMP people dong this thing for bribe. What to do Sir. Please suggest me.

    1. Not to worry Amar…Had a similar experience at BBMP post my dad’s death…To just add initials of my grand father in the death certificate, I had to pay 500rs bribe…!!
      Since then I hate to visit any Govt. office…But few cases, you cannot avoid…
      First of all, you will be sufferring for losing a very closed person and on top of that, the Govt. officials make things worst…

      The only thing I can advise you is be bold, go straight and ask that BBMP person what else he wants? Does he want any further documents from hospital or any affidivit? or any documents that has ur mother and father’s name together for them to correct it? (This can be a valid ration card/her voter ID card)

      Also Control your emotions and ask how much will the overall charges be..? (this is nice way of saying how much bribe he wants…:) )…

      – Chill maadi

  146. I need death certificate of my husband who passed away on Jan 25., 2015. My father in law is having it. He is not willing to give me the copy. How should i go about it. My FIL as well as my SIL’s have full control of my husband’s documents like bank accounts , apartment documents, his insurance etc… i have a one and a half yr old daughter. how should i try to get it back. can they claim my husband’s pension, insurance and PF? I am too worried about it. How to proceed further…pls advice

    1. Sowmya-Sorry for your husband’s sudden demise. You visit to hospital where he was last declared as dead. Take the certificate from the doctor stating that you are the wife. Once they issue it then go to BBMP office and let them issue the certificate. No need to worry about claiming on property or assets of your husband. Because you are the first legal heir of all his assets. Father and mother will come later. So don’t worry. Be strong and face with courage. God and all our wishes are with you. Best of luck for your future.

  147. Hi
    I hv provided a wrong dob in my 10th standard nd that date of birth has been continued… Now I need a birth certificate for my passport and the date of birth doesn’t match… Could you please suggest what can be done and how could I get a birth certificate.

  148. Hi sir ,

    In my mother’s death certificate ,my father’s name has to be corrected ,just 3 letter has to be added at end of name
    when i went to BBMP ,they said in death certificate they cannot do name correction.Is there any way i can get a death certification with right name

  149. Good that it is made online..Hate to visit Govt. offices and wait all day to get 1 certificate (and on top of it, bribe them as well)…!

    Luckily got my daughter’s Birth certificate from Hospital..
    Now, to add her name to the certificate, Hospital is asking me to visit the BBMP office..
    Hearing this itself made me sick..Crossing fingers with a hope that magic happens and the Govt. officials provide a swift service without taking bribe..:)


    1. Got a chance to finally visit BBMP office and to my suprise, things went on smoothly..
      So, thought of sharing my experience so that others can benefit…!

      My daughter was born at cloudnine malleswaram…through online service at the hospital we got the birth certificate but without the name (also we had not selected a name at birth time)..

      After 5months when we finialized the name, I had to visit the BBMP office (Note: this is based on the area of the hospital)…For malleswaram area, bbmp office is opposite to Mantri mall..enter that bbmp office, and ask the security guard for ‘birth certificate update’ he will point you to the correct building, it is in first floor…

      Carry the online birth certificate provided at hospital and a photocopy of the same…

      Go inside and say you want to include the name in birth certificate. He will give you a ‘name inclusion form’ (Note: This form is free..!!)..fill in all the details like Baby Name, father,mother Name, address details and sign on the back of the form…
      As mentioned in that form – for 0-6yrs – no documents are required, for 7-15yrs – School certificate is required.

      Now give the signed form to that person and the birth certificate photocopy..he will pin it..
      and on the backside of original certificate, he will write the babyname, date of submission and the date when we will have to collect the updated certificate and will return back the original certificate(It is almost 3 weeks timeframe)..
      He also wrote 50rs and collected the same..(I think it is the actual charge)…

      After 3 weeks, I can collect the updated birth certificate from any bangalore one centre its seems..

      Don’t know what is in store at bangalore one, but till now my overall experience is smooth…hope this carry forwards…Will update back my bangalore one experience shortly…! 🙂

      – Sandeep

        1. Well, exactly after 3 weeks I went to a Bangalore One centre to verify if the name has been updated…but sadly it wasn’t…

          Now everything is in a database, all they have to do is open the record, update the name and save the record.. Not even 1min job, and still they have not done it even after 3 weeks…felt really bad about the political and government system….
          Everyone thinks that Software Engineers are highly paid without much work and things like that…but we really work hard to make this world a better place to live…but ultimately, we are not benefited if it is not implemented properly by the govt…

          Not sure what to do, I waited for another week and visited bangalore one office…to my surprise, it was updated…:)
          First copy charge – 58rs, additional copy-10rs…

          FYI, Nagarbhavi Bangalore one centre is in 1st floor of BDA complex, ring road. Go to counter 8 for any queries related to birth/death certificate…

  150. Hello Sir,

    I lost my birth certificate, I am born in the year 1989. In order to get my passport done it is mandatory to produce the birth certificate. When i enquired in BMBP , Municipal and Taluk office they say there no entry on my name and few say the record is lost so they cannot help. From hospital i recieved a confirmation letter on my birth.

    Could you please advise, what could be the best practise to get my birth certificate.?

    1. Shruti-BBMP or any official, it is their responsibility to keep records safe. So if they lost it then they need to pay the penalty. You submit the request and let them give all in written reply. Lethargic attitude of Govt employees. You need to some harsh words to make them active.

  151. Hi Basvaraj,
    I have my BCissued from BBMP with my parents name & date.
    The same info is in my Matriculation ( SSLC ) marks card.
    The only thing missing in my BC is my name.
    How do i get it included in my BC.

    Awaiting your response,

    thank you

    1. Soni-If you have all valid documents like affidavit and paper publication then why can’t you submit those to concerned authority who issued the birth certificate? They have to change it to your new name.

  153. Hi Basavaraj,

    I have applied for Mothers Name correction in my Child’s birth certificate issued in 2010 at MG road office. I have provided them with application and mothers documents they have asked: 10th Marks card, Aadhar card, Letter from Manipal hospital addressed to BBMP, Affidavit. I also have my passport with spouse name. After 20 days, they have rejected my application and issued “Himbahara” letter. But they have not mentioned any exact reason. But orally they asked me to come back and request again. Going to court will cost you more. I don’t understand when they can’t update the mothers name, then why they asked me to submit all the required documents with fees.
    Please advice.


  154. My baby was born on 24th june 2014 at acura hospital, bangalore. Yhey asked us to fill a form there. We inquired about the birth certificate and they said they are not responsible for the same. I then applied for it through the recently launched karnatakaOne app and it got rejected without stating any reason. I called up the customer care and got a reply that even they do not know the reason of rejection. I then tried through bangaloreOne because I’d read somewhere that it cud be done there. But there also i was told that this service is not available with them. Now i dont know where to apply. Please help.

  172. This article was not at all useful. I was lookijg for a simple answer on how to get a birth or death certificate online in bangalore. Just the procedure. Not looking for a lecture on what is the importancs and blah blah blah. The heading of the topic and the context does not match. Going forward if you really want to help someone or guide someone then just talk to the point and the the crap. Useless article and waste of my precious time.

    1. SR-Thanks for your kind words 🙂 I respect your views. But may I know how many Indians actually know the importance of birth and death certificate? Knowing by one person is not enough friend…so this detailed explanation 🙂

  176. My father expired in an old age home at Carmelaram, Sarjapur, Bangalore on Jul 24, 2014. He was buried the next day at Kalpalli, Frazer Town. I have the doctor’s death certificate from the old age home. I approached the panchayat at Kodathi Gate but they have informed me that now it is not under Panchayat but I need to go to BBMP. I visited the BBMP offices at Doddakanelli, close to Carmelaram and also the BBMP office at Bellandur. Nobody is clear from where to get the BBMP death certificate and they are making me run pillar to post. Can you advise which BBMP office I need to visit. Or can I get it from Bangalore One?

    1. Dsa-I am not aware about exact limitation of each BBMP officials. Instead I suggest you to use one trick. Instead first sharing your work ask them whether the concerned area will come under their limit or not. If they yes then submit the application. I know the difficulty to make them to work. Because they are GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS.

  177. Hi Basvaraj,

    My brother-in-law recently passed away in hospital in Bangalore.They issued the Death report and informed BBMP office also.

Also baby name was not entered while filling online data for the certificate at the hospital, now we want to include baby name in the Govt certificate. Plz suggest.

  185. Sir my son 11 months I have got birth certificate without name , now I want add name can you please tell me the procedure

  186. Dear Sir,

    Please help me. My husband passed away on 24th Nov 2013 on the way to hospital due to heart attack. I am trying to apply for a death certificate and have been running around and not getting a proper response. Please some body help me. I have only the copies of post mortem report thats all. The issue is I was not in good terms with my brother in law and during the event they had done the formalities of the crematorium. Now since the death happened on the way the hospital has not registered. Now my in laws says that they have destroyed all the documents like the crematorium report as it was painful to see them. And I approached the Kalpally crematorium they say they dont keep copies. Please help me . I am really helpless.

    1. Shilpa-You can contact hospital authorities and ask them to issue death certificate by doctor who last visited him and declared dead. By getting that certificate along with post mortem report, you can visit BBMP. They will issue death certificate.

      1. Thank you sir for your prompt reply. I tried this but they are saying that since the case has not been registered in BBMP they need the crematorium certificate. I had been to the crematorium and say are telling they dont have the copies and asked me to go to Upperpet and get the copy. When I went to Upperpet they sent me to Utility Building there i was not getting a proper response. Do you have any idea how I can get the crematorium papers.

          1. Thank you sir for the response. At last after a long struggle running around the offices I managed to get the certificate. I had the certificate from hospital but that was not sufficient. At last based on a posting i saw on web approched Ulsoor BBMP office. He directed me to get an FIR from police station and with that they issued me the certificate. But I have understood one thing is only money works. Thank you again for your support. Nice to see good exits in the form of people like you who are ready to help people.

            1. Shilpa-Good to hear that you got it. But sad part is the line you mentioned “But I have understood one thing is only money works”. Please don’t dishearten. Because it is your right, so fight for it. I know it is hard at this stage of life. But I once again suggesting you that if you have not done anything wrong then never ever budge to any pressure, even if god comes in front of you. Best of luck for your future.

  187. Hai,

        In additional the concern person stated that the school details, educational certificates & affidavit is not considered as a valid document for the issuance of birth certificate.

  191. My father expired on January 23rd 1997 at home, i don’t know its registered or not. we need death certificate now, so where to get registration n get certificate

    1. Hi Sir,

      My father expired on march 31st 2002 in Victoria Hospital , i don’t know its registered or not. we need death certificate now, so where to get registration n get certificate.


      1. Suma-Please first confirm your father’s death date. Because in one comment you are claiming it to be 1997 and in another it is 2002. Anyhow if your father died in Victoria Hospital then they will issue the certificate of death, which you need to register with BBMP and get certificate from them.

  192. Hi Sir,

    My Grand mother had a natural death on 20 Sept 2012. it was a bandh in Bangalore on that day so we could not approach any doctor as none of them were available due to bandh. we only have a burial certificate given to us from the office of the graveyard where we had buried her. when we tried to make the death certificate, we were asked to provide a death cause certificate signed by a doctor. As the doctors were not available on her death day, we are not able to provide the same. Kindly let us know the procedure to make the death certificate in this case.
