Now you can get Birth, Death and Marriage Certificates online in Kerala. Department of Local Self Governance has launched a new initiative to make these certificates available online. Mr. Paloli Mohammed Kutty, state minister for Local Self Governance has inaugurated this e-Governance project today at the Trivandrum Corporation.
The project is developed with the help of Information Kerala Mission (IKM). You can access the website to get the certificates online. Initially this service is available from 1,223 Registration points where the Sevana application software developed by the IKM is used to register the birth, death and marriage details. The data of the registrations is stored in the State Data Center managed by IKM.
As of now only recent records are available online. In the next phase of the project, all records from 1970 will be digitized and uploaded to the database making it available online. Certificates downloaded from the website will be recognized as valid document for all purposes such as school admission.
Kerala will become the first State in the country to have online facility for issuing birth, death and marriage certificates in every local body with the launch of this project.
