Since 03.02.2014, Date of Birth for pancard has become headache.  Particularly villagers, illiterate persons, senior citizens and old persons are not having any Birth Certificate. Therefore, in absence of Passport or driving license and birth certificate, an average applicant can have only one option to file an affidavit to be sworn before a Magistrate.

A format of such affidavit is available on and same may be downloaded from But in practice, it is very difficult to get the affidavit sworn before a magistrate. Please keep in mind that magistrate of any rank and cadre can attest such affidavit including Special or Executive Magistrates in Mumbai.

If case, such format of affidavit is not attested or accepted by the magistrate of any rank and cadre, Like in Rajasthan, there should be some procedure for affidavit to be sworn before Karyapalak Magisterate (Tehsildar or Nayab Tehsildar or Sub-Tehsildar or Asstt. Sub-Tehsildar) for registration of birth  before Registrar, Birth & Death (generally in Municipality / Gram Panchayat). Such affidavit can be used for pan card purpose without submitting to Registrar Birth & Death. In such cases, the format is generally prescribed by the state Governments. For this purpose, all such applicants are advised to take assistance, guidance or help of any document writer, stamp vendor, advocate practicing in Collectorate, SDM Office, Tehsil Office etc. of their area. 

By this process, one can get even his/her Birth Certificate also from Local Body (Municipality / Gram Panchayat). In such circumstances, one get Pan Card as well as Birth Certificate also. There are law and framed rules in each state.
