Aadhaar made mandatory for registration of death from 1st October


Aadhaar number will be now required for the purpose of establishing the identity of the deceased for death registration from 1st October this year.

In a notification, Registrar General of India (RGI) said, the use of Aadhaar for the applicants of Death Certificate will result in ensuring accuracy of the details provided by the relatives and dependents.

It will provide an effective method to prevent identity fraud and also help recording the identity of the deceased person. Besides, it will obviate the need for producing multiple documents to prove the identity of the deceased person.

The RGI has directed concerned departments of States and UTs to ensure compliance of the order and send a confirmation to this effect by 1st of September this year.

The provisions will come into effect immediately for residents of all States except Jammu and Kashmir, Assam and Meghalaya for which a date will be notified separately.

An Applicant who is not aware of the Aadhaar number or EID of the deceased will be required to provide a certificate that the deceased person does not possess Aadhaar number and it should be duly informed and also prescribed that any false declaration given by the applicant in this regard will be treated as an offence.
