In the case of Delhi registration of births and deaths is compulsory as per provisions of Registration of Births & Deaths Act, 1969 and Delhi Registration of Births & Deaths Rules, 1999. They have provision for providing certified copies of birth and death certificates from the office of Chief Registrar (Births & Deaths) on submission of original certificate issued in other languages.
Similar provision may or may not exist in the state of Haryana also which can be ascertained by inquiring from the concerned office. In many cases notarized copies of English translation serves the purpose.
