Tripura Birth Certificate


Tripura Birth Certificate

Birth registration is an obligation to be rendered to a child upon birth, without which the little one could be deprived of identity, protection, and access to basic rights or services in the prospective years. A birth certificate obtained through registration must be held by every member of a family, and thereby every citizen of a country. In this article, we look at the procedure for obtaining Tripura birth certificate in detail.
