What is Birth Registration

Birth registration is the registration or including of the child’s name in the government database after the child’s birth. This is the first legal step to ensure a newborn’s name and nationality.

Birth registration is a right of every citizen. After birth, the first recognition a child receives from the state is birth registration. Through this birth registration, he becomes a citizen of the country with equal rights to other citizens.


The government enacted the Birth and Death Registration Act 2004 to make birth registration mandatory. The Birth Registration Act states that birth registration is compulsory for every person born in Bangladesh, regardless of age, race, religion or nationality.

At the end of the birth registration process, the birth registration authority will issue a certificate to the registrar.

What is the use of birth registration?

Birth registration is a person’s civic identity certificate before receiving the national identity card. Since we do not receive a national identity card before the age of 18, the birth registration certificate is compulsorily used in any of our previous jobs. E.g.,

  1. Admission to educational institutions
  2. Getting National Identity Card
  3. Passport issue
  4. Preparation of voter list
  5. Marriage registration
  6. Employment in government, private or autonomous organizations
  7. Driving license issue
  8. Land registration
  9. Open a bank account
  10. Obtaining import and export licenses
