How to Get Your Baby's NSO Birth Certificate Fast in One Month


The birth of a baby is a momentous event for any parent. And with every new addition to the family comes the gruelling process of updating your government papers. Some government offices require an NSO copy of your baby's Birth Certificate when processing requests. This is why getting an NSO copy is important.

After giving birth, the first document provided to you is the Local Civil Registrar (LCR) copy of your baby's Birth Certificate. This is available 15 working days after the date of registration, but it takes about 6 months to 1 year for the NSO Birth Certificate to be available.

Here's how to get your baby's NSO Birth Certificate fast in just 1 month through electronic endorsement:
