  7. I’ve applied for nativity certificate for my daughter last year and it got rejected

    Now using same can number I’m trying to reapply but unable to do so. I get the message ” service already availed”. Is there a way to reapply in such cases

    PS. We have 5 years proof of residence as required to avail the nativity certificate by residence clause . I am confident that the application was wrongly rejected and hence would like to apply again. Also is there a way to escalate this to higher authorities “

    • Check the “Returned Application” section. You will find your old nativity certificate application and check what is the reason for getting rejected.
