Non Availability of Birth Certificate


The birth of a child is one of the most beautiful things globally, and it is essential to register it as it will be the official testimony of the beginning of a new life. The document which records the birth is called a birth certificate. But what if your parents or guardians failed to register your birth for some reason? There you will need a Non Availability Of Birth Certificate (NABC).  If you are wondering about the procedure of the NABC certificate, don’t worry. I have covered it below.

Non Availability of Birth Certificate

Non availability of Birth Certificate (NABC) is a legal official document that assures the registration of unregistered birth. Non Availability Certificate is basically issued in case your birth certificate is not registered or you have lost your proof of birth or drowned and damaged.

This is the official statement that there is no birth certificate for any particular individual. 

  Authorities who issue NABC 

  •  In urban areas: The local authority where a person was born is responsible for issuing the non availability of birth certificate of that birth. 
  •  In rural areas: Health workers present in each village are authorized to issue certificates. The Taluke  is also authorized to issue this certificate. And that person can also go to the Gram Panchayat office in his village and get a certificate there.  India can issue NABC certificates. 

What is the need for Non Availability Certificate?

If your birth is not registered and you don’t have a Non availability certificate, you will face many problems-

  • As per the registration of the births and death act 1969, it is mandatory to register every birth in the country with the concerned state government within 21 days of delivery.
  • Without a birth certificate, you will be unable to apply for most official schemes or make any legal documents like passports, OCI, visa, pan-card, etc.
  • The birth certificate will be required as a supporting document for authorizing you as a citizen of your country.

But if you have an NABC certificate, it will work as your birth certificate.
