The Home Minister said the date shall be applicable for citizens of all states other than Jammu & Kashmir, Assam and Meghalaya.  If a person applying for a death certificate is not aware of the Adhaar number or Adhaar enrolment ID number of the deceased, a certificate proving that the deceased did not possess an Adhaar number needs to be presented, said the Home Ministry.

“It will provide an effective method to prevent identity-fraud. It will also help in recording the identity of the deceased person. Further, it will obviate the need for producing multiple documents to prove the identity of the deceased person," said Registrar General India.
