The Registrar General's Department advised the Education Ministry, Foreign Ministry, Immigration and Emigration Department and the Department of Registration of Persons to refrain from considering the validity period of birth, marriage and death certificates issued by the Registrar General's Department.

The Registrar General P.S.P. Abeywardana stated in a notice that the six-month validity period for birth, marriage and death certificates will no longer be considered .

Earlier, the validity period of birth, marriage and death certificates were stated as valid only for six months.

Therefore, the Registrar General requested that people not to obtain birth, marriage and death certificates if the existing copies with them were clear.

He requested them to obtain a fresh copy only if there were any alterations made to the certificates. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    Very ambiguous as birth, death and marriage certificates never had a clause of validity. If any of these certificates were smudged or unintelligible a copy could be obtained from Registrar Generals Dept
