(This note does not form part of this notification but is intended to indicate its general purport). The State Advisory Committee meeting held on 26-5-1972 at Cannanore have remarked that as the registration of births of scheduled Tribes are not recorded properly at present, it is found difficult to produce proof of their age required for various purposes and have proposed that the Taluk Welfare Inspectors may be authorised to register the births among the tribes. In view of practical difficulties, it was considered not feasible to appoint the Taluk Welfare Inspectors as Registrars for the purpose. The Director of Panchayats/Chief Registrar of Births and Deaths has suggested to entrust the Village staff, Forest Guards, Taluk Welfare Inspectors, village Extension Officers and Family planning Field staff
