A Birth Certificate is a certificate issued by government authorities. It is a certified copy or representation for registration of that birth. This certificate is an official document, which certifies the birth of a child/person by providing the details of time, place, sex, father/mother’s name and any other details if necessary. This certificate is mandatory in our country for many reasons, specifically to obtain some benefits from government of India. The birth certificate is signed and/or sealed by the appropriate officer who maintains the registration of all births.
