Hi,
I was going through the BLS site and found they have an option to provide a certificate for the date of birth .

https://www.blsindia-canada.com/cert_dob.php

would this be considered as a valid date of birth proof for my PR application ?

No, It wont be....I have seen 100 threads and one of my friend experienced the same....Its better to get an affidavit from the oath commisionor in Canada if you dont have the birth certificate from India....

Regarding birth certificate there is lot of confusion

1. I've seen few post certificate of Date of Birth from Indian Consulate is valid and also I've seen they are not valid

2. I've seen notarized affidavit that worked in some case and some cases they are not.

3. I've seen attested SSC Mark sheet even this work in some cases and some cases they are not.

I basically think go for all the above if you don't have birth certificate it depends on case worker what he is looking for the birth certificate alternative.

I'm sure there is no replacement for birth certificate but looking at the forums I can say there are other alternative if you fail to get the birth certificate.It's all depend on Visa Officer

So to conclude keep date of birth certificate+ affidavit notarized + ssc mark list attested . hope this will work . Make sure in Covering letter you clearly mention why you went for alternative document instead of submitting birth certificate.

I've tried like this and I'm waiting for the result.

Hope this thing will help.

Cheers,

Hi Bro..

I had also seen the same info on BLS in jan 2014 and trust that. I had applied in March 2014 using Certificate of Birth from BLS India. CIC returned my application . Than I put 10 th and 12 th Marksheet and leaving certificate in the application . Also I told my dad to send me affidavit of birth from India. So safe a side i put all other possible document to support my application and applied again in April 2014 . and received my AOR on May. If you found any other way , I mean how to obtin birth certificate from India, Please do share.

Best of luck for your application.

Yes I agree. Keep all the supporting documents (10th & 12th class attested, certificate of date of birth from indian consulate, notarized affidavit either from India or you can get it notarized in Canada and mention the reason in the cover letter ). We just want to provide that identity is authentic
