How to get Birth Certificate in Pakistan from Union Councils and e-Khidmat Markaz

A birth certificate is a legal record that documents the birth of a child. It is issued from the concerned district union council where the child is born. Traditionally this certificate is issued by local governments either through Union Council, Village Council, Neighborhood Council, Cantonment Board or any other government facilitation center.

In this post, I will show you how to get the birth certificate of your child in a simple step-by-step procedure.

How to Get Birth Certificate from Union Councils

You can contact the office of the local Union Council within 60 days of the birth for registration of the birth. You will be required to produce the following documents:
  • CNIC copy of the parents
  • Birth certificate issued by the hospital or traditional birth attendant
  • Form provided by the Union Council, duly filled in along with signature and thumb impression

Birth Certificate Fee

In Punjab, birth registration is absolutely free. However, a fee of PKR. 100/- will be charged for issuance of the NADRA Computerize Birth Registration Certificate. Secretary Union Council will receive this fee.
Fee may vary in some provinces but it is not more than Rs.300 for a normal (within 60 days) birth registration anywhere in Pakistan.

You will get the certificate within 3 working days (in the case of normal registration). However, it may take 7-20 days for late registration.

You have to visit your union council or e-Khidmat Markaz because union council's birth certificate is not issued online.
