quesWhat is the procedure to obtain death certificate?

How can i obtain death certificate for my relative? What is the procedure to obtain the death certificate? How much time will it take?

  • ansTo apply for a Death Certificate, you must first register the death. The death has to be registered with the concerned local authorities within 21 days of its occurrence, by filling up the form prescribed by the Registrar. Death Certificate is then issued after proper verification.

    If a death is not registered within 21 days of its occurrence, permission from the Registrar/Area Magistrate, along with the fee prescribed in case of late registration, is required.

    The application form in which you are required to apply is usually available with the area's local body authorities, or with the Registrar who maintains the Register of Deaths.

    You might also need to submit proof of birth of the deceased, an affidavit specifying the date and time of death, a copy of the ration card, and the required fee in the form of court fee stamps.
