									Methodology

Process of civil registration: There are three forms for the collection and
registration of births and deaths. Live births are registered in the births form,
deaths are registered in the deaths form and still births are registered in the still
birth form. The forms have two sections; the legal part and the statistical part. The
legal part is kept at the gram panchayat office in case of rural areas and in the
nagarpalika in case of urban areas and the statistical part along with a tabular
compilation is sent to the panchayat samiti in the rural areas, where it is compiled
by the PEO and sent onward to the DSO alongwith a tabular compilation of the
data. In the urban areas, the data from the nagarpalika is sent to DSO. The DSO
sends them forward to the Directorate of Economics and Statistics for final
compilation and publication.

Methodology

Civil Registration System: The vital events are registered by the Sub-registrars
or the Registrars within a prescribed period of its occurrence.

For rural areas, village registers are maintained at Block level and updated every
month after receiving the reports from the village level registrars. In rural areas,
the Sub-registrar submits a summary of number of registered events - births,
deaths, infant deaths, and still births - to the Additional District Registrar of the
respective Block. At the Block level, the number of events registered is scrutinized
and compiled for the Block. A simple monthly abstract is sent to the District
Registrar by 10th of the following month. The rural registration activities are
reviewed, supervised and inspected by the BDO and the District Registrars, and
occasionally by the Chief and Deputy Chief Registrars.

In case of urban areas, the local Registrars of Municipal Corporations, Municipal
Councils and Nagar Palika record vital events which are maintained in registers in
their respective offices. These Registrars compile monthly abstract of number of
events registered in their respective jurisdictions and send it to the District
Registrar. The urban registration activities are reviewed, supervised and inspected
by the District Registrars, and occasionally by the Chief and Deputy Chief
Registrars

The reports of vital events received from rural and urban areas by the District
Registrar are scrutinised and compiled for the District and sent to the Chief
Registrar of Births and Deaths in the State (DES) so as to reach him by the 15th of
the following month. The District reports are further scrutinised and compiled for
the State for transmission to the Registrar General of India so as to reach by the
end of the following month.

Being a legal record, the village registrars maintain and keep birth, death and still
birth registers for a period specified in the Registration Rules, 1999. After that,
the records are transferred to Additional District Registrar for preserving as a
permanent record. In the urban areas, the registrar maintains and preserves the
records at his own level.

Medical Certification of Cause of Death (MCCD): Under this scheme, medical
certificates of death, incorporating the cause of death (MCCD) as per ICD-10
