Birth certificate for minor in Gurgaon

The Cradle provided a birth certificate for my daughter. Little did I realized that it only has a emotional and ornamental value and no legal validity. So we got it framed it nicely (Thanks to Tushina) and it occupies a place of pride in our bedroom.


I was told that as a procedure hospital has already send the notification to the municipal authorities about child birth. The birth certificate can be collected after 21 days from the MCD office, Gurgaon situated opposite civil hospital Gurgaon (See Map Below).

I went there after  2 months to collect the certificate. I was told to submit an application again on plain paper (hospital has already send in the notification) and collect the certificate 21 days post that. The application has a simple format capturing Name of child , parents, date and place of birth, address and number of copies of certificate required. Not so simple…

The application format was pasted outside the clerk window in both English and Hindi, but he would accept the application only filled in Hindi and that too without child’s name. Once a certificate without name is issued then  a affidavit needs to be submitted stating that child name will not be changed in future to get a birth certificate with child’s name. I tried to convince him that we had already spend two months in finalizing the daughter name  as Tisya and have no intention to change it.

I got the birth certificate without child’s name and wrong address. On inquiring I was told the birth certificate will carry details as shared by hospital and can’t be changed  (I thanked heaven they have only put in wrong address and not wrong parents name).

birth certificate affidavit

On my next visit I submitted the affidavit for the child’s name, Birth certificate (without name) and the same stupid application (remember they would only print details as shared by hospital) and fee of Rs 17 (+Rs 52 for additional 4 copies). I was asked to come again in 7-8 days to check the spelling on certificate before printing.  They issued the certificate this time with name but in Hindi. Every action of theirs is covered under one blanket statement ‘yehi process hai’.

Now as a final step, I have again submitted the application (same futile details) and attached a copy of certificate (hindi) and fee of Rs 17 (+Rs 52 for additional 4 copies) for a new certificate. I have to visit the municipal office again to ensure the name is punched in right before the printing of the certificate.

  1. my baby born in SGT hospital at gurgaon in july 2016. till now i can’t make birth certifacte. plz suggest process how make cetifacte.

  2. Hi, i just got the birth certificate of my child done. I think the process to be followed is as below..
    1) hospital sends birth details to municipal office
    2) go to municipal office and get the birth certificate without name issued. Rs. 35 fees in Gurgaon.
    3) Go to notary and get your child’s name affidavit done based on the details in the birth certificate – date of birth, parents name, place of birth etc along with name of the baby.

    This should be sufficient for now as your kids identity document. However if you want to get name added then
    4) get adhar card done basis name less birth certificate and affidavit. Again a requirement in Gurgaon.
    5) once adhar is done, submit a request in municipal office for name addition basis adhar card..takes about 20 days and Rs. 85/- fee in gurgaon.

  7. Hi everyone, need help please, we are expecting our first child in November and are very excited about it 🙂 . Right now we are staying in Gurgaon (temporarily on rent) but our permanent house is in delhi. Me and my Husband both are born and bought up in delhi and all our proofs bear delhi as the permanent address. I am not sure if we may shift back to delhi in near future (by next year may be)…. so my query is, my gynae is in gurgaon and she does not sit in any hosptal in delhi.. hence, If I get the delivery done by her in gurgaon, then the baby’s birth certificate would contain Gurgaon, Haryana as the birth place…. ( and that would be considered as the baby’s domicile for life?… not sure :/

    would this make any difference at the time of school admissions if we shift later to delhi?

    please let me know your if you have ever come across a similar situation

  12. In my baby’s birth certificate, mothers name was wrong. I contacted MCG they were saying whatever they get from hospital, they add blindly. The hospital people make purposeful mistakes, because they know the process. Hospital asked to pay 2000 for birth certificate. Normally, what is the cost? 12 Rs. They are trying to loot common man.

  26. Services on Click helps, provides complete & accurate information about How to, Documents required & Procedure to get Ration Card issued in Delhi by Govt of India

  27. Thanks very much Amit…I would go in person to gurgaon, and then see if I can submit an authorisation letter so that another friend can collect the same and courier it back to be to Hyderabad.

    • Hi Amit,
      I had received the birth certificates from MCG, Wazirpur. But they are all in Hindi and I was told that these are always issued in Hindi. How do we get the English versions ? Any idea ?

      • They issue the certificate in hindi by default. I hope you have taken more than one copy of the certificate , as you need to apply for a english certificate along with one original copy of certificate.

  28. @alok if you are here on short stay , it might be tough because MCG guys generally take 2 weeks to issue you the certificate with any change (addition of name , certificate in English).

    You better carry original Hindi certificate , an affidavit stating the parents name and name of the child and a application on plain paper. The certificates in Gurgaon were generally issued in Hindi that time and they would call you a day in advance to check spelling and all.

    Once you confirm the spelling they’ll take print out and next day handover to you after getting it attested by the authorized signatory.

  29. @Charu the stamp paper can be purchased from the civil court near rajiv chowk haryana. The stamp paper ; if i remember correctly was on the name of child’s father

  30. Hi, Can you also let me know, if the Stamp Paper has to be from Haryana and on whose name it is to be purchased.

  31. Hey Nirmal,

    Thank you ever so much! I am about to go for getting birth certificate for my son. I will definitely make sure that I carry affidavit with me to avoid delay as much as possible.

  32. well this is precious certificate, my best wishes to your daughter

  33. Really elaborate and practical description. It really helped me in getting my baby’s birth certificate. Thanks for this post !
