Birth Certificate Relaxation for Orphaned/Abandoned Children. Center for Social Justice

Center for Social Justice 80 Supporters Many orphans are denied passports due to the ignorance of the regional passport offices about the notification saying that it is not mandatory for the orphaned/abandoned children to produce their birth certificate, and there are prescribed alternatives for the same. Even the passport office in Gujarat, widely proclaimed as a “model” state, does not know that orphan/abandoned children are exempted from the mandatory requirement of submission of a birth certificate along with passport application form. “Those of us who adopt such children struggle hard for getting passports of our kids, for which they insist on birth certificates which is not available – so people end up bribing, finding various means for getting one." - Quoted by a senior-activist from an Ahmedabad based NGO. A Ministry of External Affairs notification, dated May 26, 2015, which says that the birth certificate is no longer necessary if the child is an orphan or has been abandoned, provided she or he is born on or after January 26, 1989 exists. The May 2015 notification says, “In the recent past, a number of references have been received from various orphanages/childcare homes and legal experts highlighting the plight of those orphan/abandoned children born on or after January 26, 1989, who could not get the passport facilities in the absence of mandatory birth certificate in support of their date of birth proof.” “Such children are unable to obtain the birth certificates as the names of biological parents are not known to them and the precise date of birth cannot be ascertained”, the notification says, adding, “Various representations have been received in the Ministry for relaxing the statutory condition of production of birth certificate for passport in respect of such orphan/abandoned children.” On considering such requests/representations, the notification says, “It has been decided that the Passport Issuing Authorities (PIAs) while processing the case of orphan/abandoned children born on or after January 26, 1989”, may consider providing any of the optional certificates along with their passport application. These include: Copy of the birth certificate, Date of birth recorded in the matriculation certificate issued by duly recognized/affiliated educational institution along with the bonafide certificate duly sworn by the Head of the orphanage/childcare home (in case of minor) or by applicant himself (in case of major) before the First Class Judicial Magistrate/Executive Magistrate categorically stating his/her date of birth/place of birth; or Declaratory Court order issued by the court of competent jurisdiction recording the date of birth/place of birth of such an applicant in the order. Insisting that “all PIAs In India and abroad are requested to comply with the above instructions”, the notification has been signed by India’s Chief Passport Officer. Here's what we want the passport authorities to do: We want the National Passport Authority to follow this notification and inform all regional passport offices to follow the same.
