Birth, death, marriage data computerized

To enable the public who call over to obtain copies of Birth, Death and Marriage certificates speedily, within a few minutes, the Government had invested millions of rupees for scanning all birth, death, and marriage certificates countrywide and is computerizing the data in stages, said Register General E. M. Gunasekara.

Gunasekera said, it was a costly and time consuming affair and also a matter of security concern. At present all data on births, deaths and marriages in the District of Colombo had been computerised and ready at the touch of a button to trace any copy and obtain it in minutes if not seconds.

The registered birth, deaths and marriages in the Gampaha, Attanagalla, andMirigama divisional Secretariat areas are also being computerised.

The computerisation of the data in Divisional Secretariats in Kandy, Kurunegala and Anuradhapura town areas also has been almost completed.

The scanning of the data in the Divisional Secretariats of Kamburupitiya, Akuressa, Nuwara Eliya, Vavuniya and Kalpitiya is progressing well. The data in the Divisional Secretariats of Kegalle, Ratnapura and Badulla towns would also commence later.

The computerisation of this data will continue until all Divisional Secretariat areas in the island are covered.
