NSO Birth Certificate Delivery – Part 1

I talked about NSO Birth Certificate in the previous blog post. Now, let us talk about how you can obtain your NSO Birth Certificate without going to any office of the National Statistics Office (NSO).

I suddenly needed to obtain my NSO Birth Certificate in the month of March this year. My NSO Birth Certificate is one of the requirements for a housing loan that I planned to avail. Unfortunately, I am too busy at the office and I have no time to go to NSO and personally get the birth certificate. I can ask my father to get the birth certificate for me but considering the very hot weather and the threat of heat stroke I decided against it. The only option left is obtain my birth certificate through the NSO Birth Certificate Delivery.

Using the NSO Birth Certificate Delivery is quite easy. Requests for NSO Birth Certificates can be done by few clicks on the mouse and few taps on the keyboard. You don’t need to go to any NSO office because your NSO Birth Certificate will be delivered right at your doorstep.

There are two ways to have your NSO Birth Certificate delivered to your home or office. One way is by requesting your NSO Birth Certificate online through the e-Census website. Another way is by using Teleserv’s NSO Birth Certificate Delivery, which is done through telephone. I will teach you how to use NSO Birth Certificate request service of e-Census in this blog post. I will tackle Teleserv’s NSO Birth Certificate Delivery in the next blog post.
