  2. Valid Proof of Date of Birth

What is the valid proof of date of birth?


The certificate of date of birth issued by a Municipal Corporation, a Municipal Body, a Village Panchayat or any

other body authorised by the Registrar, Birth and Death, Government of India is a valid proof. However, in case of
orphans, street children etc., a medical certificate in respect of age issued by Government Hospital is also acceptable as valid proof.

As per the new provisions

  • All candidates, irrespective of whether they were born on or before January 26, 1989, may submit an attested copy of the birth certificate issued by a municipal authority or by the Registrar of Births and Deaths.
  • They can also submit an attested copy of the date of birth certificate from the school last attended


  • Transfer certificate or affidavit sworn before a first class magistrate stating nationality and the date of birth.

The birth certificate should carry greater authoritativeness, mainly because the details in it comes from information supplied by your parents plus articulating with information provided or cross-checked with the hospital or the relevant health authorities. It also has the advantage of official authoritativeness
