DOCUMENTS VERIFICATION UPDATES

Please be informed that vide circular bearing No. 8-12-2017-LD (Estt.)(Part File-I)/670 dated 02/06/2017 issued by the Department of Law & Judiciary, Law Division, Government of Goa and Circular No. 3/1/2017-Registration/1001 dated 12/06/2017 issued by the Office of the State Registrar-cum-Head of Notary Services, Government of Goa.

Thereby instructing all the Civil Registrar and Sub Registrar of Goa not to entertain the request from the Portuguese Consulate for verification of Birth / Death and Marriage. Under these guidelines all the Civil Registrar and Sub Registrar of Goa has stopped the Birth / Death and Marriage verification process received from the Portuguese Consulate in Goa.

As per the new directions the Portuguese Consulate will have to route all the Birth / Death and Marriage verification request through the Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi.

The Ministry of External Affairs will forward the request to the Ministry of Home Affairs and then to the State Registrar and the State Registrar will have to forward this verification request to the respective Civil Registrar cum Sub Registrar.

The Civil Registrar cum Sub Registrar will then comply to the verification request and forward its reply back in the same route to the State Registrar, then to Ministry of Home affairs, then to Ministry of External Affairs and finally to the Portuguese Consulate.

This route seems to be very difficult and complicated and we cannot guarantee whether the verification will be completed in time due to so many Government Departments will be involved in verification of Birth / Death and Marriage.
