The Number Of Registered Births Increased

The results were studied based on the data provided by 30 States and Union Territories. However, the number of registered births increased to 2.33 crore in 2018 from 2.21 crore in 2017.  If you already did not know, the time limit for registration of birth or death is 21 days. However, in some states, you can register even after a year. If reported within 21days, one can register birth or death on payment of the prescribed fee. Suppose the duration is more than 30 days. In that case, you will need the permission of the authority and the production of an affidavit. Dubai Welcomes The Region’s First Female Public Bus Drivers.
