Registration of births and deaths is an important source for demographic data for socio-economic development and population control in developing countries. In India, the need for dependable demographic data was felt soon after independence heralding the era of Five Year
planning. In the beginning, the registration of births and deaths started on voluntary basis and there was no uniformity in statistical returns resulting in both under registration and incomplete
coverage. In order to unify the civil registration activities, the Civil Registration System (CRS) was introduced in India under the Registration of Births and Deaths Act (RBD Act), 1969. Civil Registration System may be defined as a continuous recording of vital events such as births, deaths and marriages occurring in a population.

The basic uses of data from Civil Registration System are

  1. Maintenance of permanent records on births and deaths as legal documents.
  2. Assessment of continuous changes in population.
  3. Evaluation of success of socio-economic programmes by indicators based on vital events and size of population.
  4. Assessment of continuous changes in population.
  5. Evaluation of success of socio-economic programmes by indicators based on vital events and size of population.

As a matter of fact, requirement of this system as legal proof of births and deaths should in itself be strong enough reason for any country to have a fully operational CRS. In India the registration of vital events and the administrative machinery for this purpose has been in existence for more than a century. It had been working under diversified Acts and executive instructions thus making it unsuitable for the independent India.
