A petition has been filed in the High Court seeking necessary steps to resume birth registration activities of 4 municipalities and 71 unions in Cox's Bazar.

Supreme Court lawyer Nasrin Siddiqua Lina, a Cox's Bazar resident filed the writ with a report published in a local daily titled 'Birth Registration suspended for 20 months'.

In the petition, it has been requested to the court to mark the rule asking why the order would not be given for taking necessary steps to resume birth registration in the 4 municipalities and 71 unions in Cox's Bazar and why the failure and inaction of the defendants to resume birth registration would not be invalid.

In addition, a petition has been issued asking to make the order to give chance to the children who were not able to register their birth registration since August 25, 2017.

Local government secretary, the registrar general of the birth and death registrations of the local government department, the divisional commissioner of Chattogram and the deputy commissioner of Cox's Bazar have been made defendant in the petition.
