Sir, how old is your child? If your child is still a small baby of the age group 0-12 months, the birth certificate can be surrendered to BBMP and a request can be done to issue new birth certificate.
If your child is more than a year old, then an application has to be filed before the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate and get it changed. and this process can be done within a span of 3 months.
