Villages where birth registration was low were chosen



BIDAR: Shaffiuddin, Director of Sahayoga, a Bidar-based non-government organisation (NGO), on Monday said that the NGO had created awareness among the rural masses in three taluks of the district on the importance of registering child births and also on obtaining certificates in this connection.

Speaking at a press conference here, Mr. Shaffiuddin said that before the drive was launched, about 55 per cent of the people had awareness on birth registration about two years ago.

Now, the registration percentage had gone up to 90, he said

He said the drive was launched in nine gram panchayats, three each in Bhalki, Aurad and Bidar taluks. Statistics were obtained from District Statistical Office, Bidar. Gram panchayats where birth registration was low were also chosen for the drive.

Assistant Statistical Officer Mohammed Masiruddin was present.
