Detailed Contents Of Akta Pendaftaran Kelahiran Dan Kematian 1957 (Akta 299):
The Registration of Births and Deaths Act 1957 (Act 299) is a Malaysian law that regulates the registration of births and deaths in the country. The Act requires parents or guardians to register the birth of a child within 14 days of the birth, while deaths must be registered within 24 hours.
The Act also establishes a National Registration Department to oversee the registration of births and deaths, as well as the issuance of identity cards and other related documents. The Department is responsible for maintaining a registry of all births and deaths in the country, which is used for statistical purposes and to issue identity cards.
The Act also includes provisions for correcting errors in birth or death records, as well as penalties for failing to register a birth or death, or for providing false information during registration.
The Special Provisions Act 1975 (Act 152) complements the Registration of Births and Deaths Act by providing additional provisions for the registration of births and deaths in certain circumstances. These include births and deaths that occur outside of a hospital or medical facility, or in cases where the person responsible for registering the birth or death is unable to do so.
The Act also includes provisions for the registration of births and deaths of refugees, stateless persons, and other individuals who may not have the necessary documentation to prove their identity.
Overall, the Registration of Births and Deaths Act 1957 and the Special Provisions Act 1975 play a crucial role in ensuring the accurate and timely registration of births and deaths in Malaysia, which is essential for the provision of government services and the protection of individual rights.
