LCR to gather gov't agencies for efficient system

By Mai Gevera

Davao City (6 February) -- Government agencies requiring birth records from its clients will be gathered by the Local Civil Registry (LCR) to patch up gaps in the system.

Agencies like the Department of Education (DepEd), Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) are invited to participate in the forum.

LCR officer Atty. Leo Braceros admitted a lack of collaboration of government agencies to better the system of civil registration.

"We will be discussing problems that our clients usually encounter and we will look for ways to correct those mistakes and improve our system," he said.

The LCR receives 20 petitions filed per day and this has pushed them to coordinate with line agencies to simplify the process.

For one, he found out that DFA employees usually advise its clients to go to the LCR if there are major errors in the record.

But clients usually end up disappointed learning that the LCR could not handle the problem. Instead, they should immediately go to the court for proper filing of petition.

The LCR also urged DepEd schools to immediately require an authenticated birth certificate from the student during enrolment.

"Most of the cases we encounter are complaints from the parents of graduating students who are barred by the school for graduation because the school found out erroneous marks on their records," he said.

This, he said, became a burden to the parents of these kids since the petition process would usually run from six to eight months since the date of filing. (PIA XI) [top]
