The Department of National ID and Civil Registration has added a new provision for issuing a birth certificate to a child with the surname under the maternal lineage.

The provision has been added targeting children born to a single mother and whose paternal lineage remains unidentified.

Talking to RSS, Department Director General Rudra Prasad Pandit said the provision was added following the request from local levels for further clarifying provisions for the birth registration of such children.

However, the Department mandates the cancellation of the birth registration issued under this category if the identity of the child's father is ascertained and the issuance of a new certificate along with the address of the father.
