Online Birth Certificate is Now Valid for School Admissions
Birth Certificates downloaded from the Kerala Government Civil Registration Website cr.lsgkerala.gov.in can now be used for School Admissions. Government of Kerala has amended the Kerala Education rules to allow print outs of the Online Birth Certificate as a valid proof for school admission in Kerala. Earlier winkerala.com reported that Kerala Government has launched a new initiative to make the Birth, Death and Marriage certificate available online. The facility was launched on 5th August 2010. Kerala is the first state in India to have a centralized database of civil registration record from all registration units.
As of now only recent and new records are available online. In the next phase, all records from 1970 will be digitized and made available online. Many have appreciated the new initiative of Government of Kerala.
