Sevana - Civil Registration

Sevana Civil RegistrationThe Civil Registration System handles essential statutory documents relating to citizenship, age, name, parental details, place of birth, financial rights etc. Kerala State has achieved a unique status in birth registration with 92% of the births and 90% of the deaths being registered. Kerala has the largest emigrant population of 1.4 million with current annual migration of nearly one hundred thousand. Birth and Marriage certificates are invariably required by them. Every year 0.5 million children get enrolled in schools. All of them require birth certificates. Number of death registrations come to nearly 0.2 million every year. Thus on an average 25 persons out of 1000 require these services every year. For the same reason civil registration has emerged as a priority area for computerisation by LSGs. Birth, Death and Marriage registration using Sevana is one of the main services provided through ‘Janasevanakendrams’ and ‘Hospital Kiosks’.

Sevana suite containing 10 independent applications for handling different types of activities related to the civil registration system (Birth, Death & Marriage Registration) in a local body is comprehensive and strictly in accordance with the requirements of the act and rule.
