Re: how to get birth certificate online in mumbai
For getting Birth Certificate from BMC, Mumbai I went through agent just to save time of visiting and waiting in queue at BMC office. If others have visited personally then please share their experience in the comment section.
My child was born at Hospital in Powai and the hospital gave me form to fill immediately after birth. Please fill this form correctly (legible CAPITAL letters) as it is possible to fill details casually with mistakes at the moment of ecstasy and excitement. You have option to fill baby name in it but it is not mandatory. If you are not very sure then better not to fill name, as you can add name while getting birth certificate from BMC office. Hospital nurse told me that they send the child birth information form to S-Ward BMC office at LBS Road, Near Mangat Ram Petrol Pump, Bhandup West(As powai was falling under S-ward) and i can collect birth certificate from BMC S-Ward office in Bhandup after two months.
After around 40 days of birth i visited S-ward office on a working day around 12 noon. Somebody inform me that birth certificate is collected from their CFC (Customer Facilitation Centre) at ground floor. But there was a huge queue of crowd and kind of agitated environment as BMC employees were saying that the counter time is just 9 AM to 12 noon and it is closed. People were angry because most of them were standing in the queue since morning and then they were asked to leave as time was over without providing service to them.
BMC person told us that CFC is open from 9 AM to 12 noon on weekdays. 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month are holidays. He advised us to come around 8 in the morning and collect small 2 page form from the office and stand in the queue. Required document was just a copy of discharge summary of hospital.
Then i searched birth certificate agent No. on justdial and called him. He said that total expense (including his charges) would be 300/- for five copies of birth certificate (BMC charge is I guess
