Birth, Death: Late registration fines waived

Published: October 23, 2012


The Punjab government has waived fines on late registration of deaths and births, Local Government Director General Nadeem Aslam said on Monday.

He was addressing a seminar organised by the National Database Registration Authority (NADRA). He said union council records were also being computerised so that people could easily get death and birth certificates. NADRA Director General Sajjad Hussain Shah said since most union councils did not own the buildings they had their offices in and some lacked electricity connections, it was difficult for the authority to computerise their records.

    For me it is surprising that since the publication of this news no comment has come forward even after a lapse of 15 days.The subject of ‘late fee’ aside,the issuance of ‘death certificate’ is of such great importance that it can not be left at the mercy of union councils alone.Many a dispute in the past (some with dire consequences) has arisen just because of the indifferent attitude of UCs while issuing a death certificate,because it has become very easy for people with criminal motives to get the certificate issued to deprive someone of his rightful share of the inheritance,simply by using his/her ID’s copy and fake signatures.Making it easier to get the death registered late will simply serve the purpose of the wrongdoers.WE ALWAYS LEARN LATE and we are very good at itRecommend
