National: On Friday, the government officials clarified that Aadhaar number is not mandatory for securing death certificate. Aadhaar number is not mandatory but required for registration of death from October 1.
Those who are applying for the death certificate and aren’t aware of the deceased’s Aadhaar details, would be required to furnish a certificate saying they are not aware if the deceased person had an Aadhaar card, to the best of their knowledge. The clarity came after several media houses brought the news of ‘Mandatory’ Aadhaar number for death certificate registration.
