Mysuru: People in Mysuru can now get their birth and death certificates online. All one has to do is go to this ejanma.kar.nic.in and apply for it. The facility will be made available in 15 days and certificates can be obtained in any of the nine MCC zones.
Raising the issue at the Council meeting, Corporator M.V. Ramprasad told the Council that people are being made to run from pillar to post to obtain either a birth certificate or a death certificate. “People stand in long queues for certificates and many times they are turned away citing lack of resources, technical glitches and lack of internet connectivity,” he said.
Former Mayor Ayub Khan and SBM Manju too raised the issue and said that people living in highly populated areas in Mysuru face a great difficulty to register birth and deaths as there is no proper system to do the same.
Replying to the concerns, MCC Health Officer Dr. D.G. Nagaraju said that the State Government’s eJanMa online birth and death certificate registration facility is being implemented across the State, especially in Mysuru and Bengaluru. He said that the software is being tested in Bengaluru and Mysuru and is likely to be finalised in another fortnight.
He said that the e-janma site provides details on all births, deaths and still births electronically registered in Karnataka. The births, deaths and still births that occur in rural areas are registered in eJanMa by Village Accountants through Nada Kacheri at Hobli level.
The births, deaths and still births that occurred in the Sub Registration Units (Govt. Medical Institutions PHC/CHC) are also registered in eJanMa and certificates are issued in the Institution itself, he said. In case, one has to include name of the child in birth certificate, one can contact respective Registrars and Sub Registrars (Village Accountants and Medical Officers).
In the eJanMa website, one can check your application status and statistical report as well. One can check whether a birth or death certificate is verified, Nagaraju added.
