Application will have to be made in Delhi only.

Sec 30(2) (l) read with sec 15 of central act ( Registration of Births and Deaths Act, 1969),  confers power to state government to make rules for corrections of entries relating to births.

You have to apply to Registrar of Births in Delhi for rectifying errors in your birth certificate.
