Mayor Lani moves to have births of all Taguigeños registered
The city government of Taguig is bringing to its barangays the enlistment of local residents’ births as a way to ensure the success of its “100 percent Birth Registration Program.”
Under Mayor Lani Cayetano’s program, a resident born in Taguig City will not have to pay any fee regarding registration.
The barangay Mobile Birth Registration (MBR) of the Local Civil Registry (LCR) is slated to run on May 6, 13, 20 and 27 this year. It is scheduled to make rounds in 17 barangays in the city.
The barangays are New Lower Bicutan, Hagonoy, San Miguel, Tuktukan, Sta. Ana, Napindan, Ibayo, Fort Bonifacio, Pinagsama, Katuparan, Upper Bicutan, Maharlika Village, Central Bicutan, Lower Bicutan, Bagumbayan, Western Bicutan, and Ususan.
Taguig City Civil Registrar Cynthia Ignacio said these villages have been identified as the location of most of their target population.
She said the residents there could take advantage of summer when most of them have the time to process their documents since the children are on school vacation.
To process a delayed registration of birth, a requester need only bring original copies of the required documents, which may vary depending on the age and status of the requester; a copy of the requester’s latest original Philippine Statistics Authority (formerly known as the National Statistics Office) Negative Result; the personal appearance of witnesses and parents of the requester, and a valid ID of the requester or that of the parents’ or guardian.
A birth registration is considered delayed if the requesting party is not able to process his or her birth information within 30 days from the date of birth.
A free copy of the birth certificate can then be picked up at the Local Civil Registrar’s Office 10 days after the completed transaction. #
