  1. What if a person doesn't have any proof of ID or any birth certificate as he/she resides in Village.

    Then what documents are required?
    Will secondary/Higher secondary Admit card or certificate will do?

    Please suggest.

    1. Dear Chouhan,
      It is expected that each indian citizen will be having Ration Card, Voter Card or Aadhar Card etc. which may be used as valid Ids. However, in supoport of DOB, secondary/Higher secondary certificate will be a good proof- .
