Birth Certificate for an adopted child.
Accept my gratitude, the query is that my uncle had adopted a boy child 2 yrs back without any legal formalities from a friend of one of their relative from Mumbai. They do not posses the child's birth certificate and also have lost contact with the person from whom the child was adopted. Now the problem is that without birth certificate difficulties may occur like school admission and to name a few.
Please advice what can be done in this situation so that birth certificate can be obtained and my uncle and aunty become the legal guardian of the child.

The child has not been adopted. You are unaware of the legal import of the expression 'adoption', hence you have used it. In the ultimate analysis, the child is simply living with your uncle.
deed of adoption is necessary for adopting child . it has to be signed by the biological parents . . in addition it has to be registered . the birth certificate would reflect the name of biological parents . if you want the name of adopted parents to be reflected you have to make application to magistrate obtain court order then only will changes be reflected in birth certificate . magistrate wont pass an order unless there is valid adoption deed
