How To Apply Nativity Certificate Through Online In Tamilnadu

In this guide, I am going to explain “How to apply nativity certificate through online in Tamilnadu”.


To get all type of these certificates such as (Community, Nativity, Small/Marginal Farmer, OBC, First graduate, unmarried certificate) you have to register an account in TNESevai Website and have to create a CAN Number.

Refer these two articles for TNESevai Account Registration and CAN Number Creation.

Once you have successfully finished the procedure which I have mentioned on the above articles then you are ready to proceed further.

Steps to Apply Nativity Certificate Through Online In Tamilnadu

The first step is to open the TnEsevai website and login into your account.TnESevai Website also known as TNeGA Portal.

The default webpage will look like the below image, on that you have to click “Revenue Department” Link.


It will redirect you to the “Revenue Department Page” where you can apply for various type of certificates. On the Revenue Department page, you have to click “Nativity Certificate” Link.


Once you did that, it will open the instructions page on that please read the instructions given carefully.

You have to proceed further by clicking the “Proceed” button. It will open the “CAN form” where you can Register a new CAN Number or you can search existing “CAN Number” by various methods.


Hope you have already created a CAN Number, if yes search your “CAN Number” using your mobile number then generate the OTP, verify the OTP and proceed further.

You don’t have to fill your personal details. You can apply for Nativity certificate using two methods,

  1. Nativity by birth
  2. Nativity by Residence

If you are in the birthplace which means the address mentioned on the birth certificate then go for “option 1”.

if you are not in the birth place you are migrated to another place means go for “option 2”.

For the first option, you don’t have to fill anything but for the second option, you have to fill your current address.


Once you submit the form, need to upload the required documents as per instructions. The only difference between residence and birth is the fourth point.

You have to upload the School Education Certificat or Employment Details or Other proof to prove continuous residence of 5’s only for the “residence option” otherwise it won’t ask you to upload this certificate.


Finally, you have to make the payment of Rs.60 using your credit, debit or net banking. It will generate the acknowledgment receipt and there will be a number on that.

Final Thoughts:

You can use that number to track the status of the application. Once the certificate gets generated you will receive a message on your mobile number. Simply take a print out of the certificate and use it.

Still have any queries please do comment below,I will help you.

  4. Hello,
    I did the CAN registrations for my family. While trying to apply for Nativity Certificate, there was a bit delay in uploading the documents, due to some unexpected errors. When I tried to apply again, it says “already applied with this CAN”. I am not able to register new CAN as it is not allowing to register more than 5 CAN accounts. Please guide as to how to reapply for Nativity Certificate.
