Obtain Birth, Death and Marriage Certificates

This is one of the best e-Governance initiatives of the Govt. of Kerala to digitize the registration information of citizens across the 1000+ of local self government institutions of the state. It covers all the Panchayaths (Gram, Block and District), Municipality and Corporations across the state with Birth, Death and Marriage Certificates. Even though various local self government institutions (തദ്ദേശ സ്വയം ഭരണ സ്ഥാപനങ്ങൾ) are at different levels in their progress of digitization, this still should provide an appreciable amount of help to the common people.

Click here to go to Certificate Search page, where you need to select the District, Local Body Type and Local Body of the institution where the certificate is registered.

Once you click Submit, you will be shown a Status of Available Records page, where the year up to which the details are available online in that local body for Birth, Death and Marriage registrations are shown separately. If the registration year of your certificate is mentioned in the list in the correct category, proceed by clicking on the appropriate link on the left side of the page.

Please provide only mandatory details highlighted in *. Also do note that while entering names, only 3 characters is mandatory and hence it would be better to provide only the first 3 characters. This is particularly helpful in avoiding record not found error, due to any wrong entry in the database.

After you enter the details and click on Search, matching records (if found) are displayed in the next page. You can then open the required record by clicking the View button.

This opens another page with complete details of the registration.

Finally, you can open the certificate as a PDF file by clicking on Print button.  

The PDF can be saved to your computer for use later, if required.
