Gurgaon, Noida, Faridabad, Ghaziabad, Delhi - Nursery, KG, Playschool Admissions
On this forum I have read that some schools ask (and retain for a few days) the original birth certificate. And subsequently there is a mad rush now at MCD to get additional copies of the same.
My case is slightly different. My daughter was born in USA and there is no way, I can arrange more copies of the original (I have just two). Will a notarized one suffice in this case ? What's the way out ?
I am also in a similar fix, though my son was born in India, but not in Delhi and the municipal corporation of that city denies to give any duplicate birth certificates. Was wondering if a notarized one will solve the purpose?
Yes, people who are not local to Delhi have tough times I have heard.
Neither sibling, nor alumni quota is applicable. And its better to forget about the staff quota.
The only area to score is the distance - and I wonder whether that will be enough.
On top of that if there is additional overhead for basic documents like this, I don't know what to do.
I really agree with your real and valid concern...its really tough for recently shifted but cant sit ideal so trying hard....lets see !
and what about the first child please????
People - relax! Schools do not ask for Original Birth certificate (I am talking from last year experience) while you APPLY for admissions. Only self attested photocopies are required at this stage. However, when you go in to actually admit your child - only then you need to furnish the original birth certificates. If you get through in more than one schools and want to book your seats accordingly, you can get back your original documents easily. The second school usually gives you some time to submit documents as long as you've submitted fees in full. Hope this clarifies the ground reality somewhat :)!
Oh is it so.....Thanx a lot Anantharaman for this update. Atleast one tension got over.
@ Nidhi: I believe that the Municipality of a city has to give birth certificates in duplicate. Please insist. Ask them for the rules. Any way, an original birth certificate is actually not such an issue as long as you have at least one copy. I didn't feel the need of more than one last year when I was applying for my daughter.
