National conference of chief registrars of births and deaths inauguratedNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:21 am ICT by admin
Currently (2005) 64 per cent of the births and 58 percent of the deaths are registered.
“In 2005, the level of birth registration increased significantly in Bihar (8.9 percent), Rajasthan (8.4), Chattisgarh (8.1 percent) and Orissa (5 percent). Meanwhile Himachal Pradesh, Kerala, Punjab, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal have achieved 100 per cent registration of births”, he informed.
Sikri also outlined some of the reasons for a low level of registration of births and deaths such as lack of awareness among people about the need and importance of registration, low priority accorded to this work and general apathy in many states, low utility of registration certificates, etc.
The participants at the two-day Conference include, Chief Registrars of States and Union Territories and the representatives from UNICEF, Plan India, health department of different States, Office of Registrar General of India and Directorates of Census Operations in the States and Union Territories.
