I am facing this problem now. The Chennai Corporation is refusing to issue a "Non-Availability" of Birth Certificate for my wife. Instead they suggest to get a court order (by sworning before a Magistrate by Parents) and then they will issue a fresh Birth Certificate. But my lawyer says it is not acceptable. I want to know if Any of you faced a similar situation? Any of you got a Non-Availability Certificate from Chennai Corporation? Any of you got this so called Court order and a Fresh Birth Certificate from Chennai Corporation and accepted by the INS / Lawyer? If any of you is interested and willing to give me further information please reply to this or e-mail me at \'firstname.lastname@example.org\'. I am really greatful for any help provided in this matter. Thanks Ganesh Natarajan \'email@example.com\'
