A gathering outside Suva has been told that parents are providing wrong information when they register their children in the Vola ni Kawa Bula (VKB), – the register of all  iTaukei.

The comment was made by the chairman of the iTaukei Lands and Fisheries Commission, Ratu Vananalagi Vesikula, during the iTaukei Affairs public consultations at Qauia Village, Lami, on Tuesday.

Ratu Vananalagi told those present that the information provided should go with what they had in the VKB.

He said the requirements were as follows:

For locals:

– Informant to produce an original Birth Certificate (Full extract) for the person’s name to be included in the VKB.

Overseas:

– Informant to produce child original Birth Certificate and original Marriage Certificate of the parents.

– If the child is registered under the mother then Birth Certificate only is required.

– If Birth Certificate is registered in other language, then English translation is required.

– A Statutory Declaration ma3de by the informant must be attached with the birth certificate and marriage certificate.

He said that it was very important the village, tokatoka, mataqali and yavusa were shown.

The TLFC chairman said another problem they were facing was that some people who were long dead were still registered in the VKB.

Deregistration should be carried out by the relatives.

Deletion requirements for deaths in the VKB for locals:

– Informant to produce Death Certificate, Burial Order, Notification of Death or any official Memorandum from the Ministry of Health.

Overseas:

–  Informant to produce the original Death Certificate of the deceased.

– A Statutory Declaration made by the informant must be attached with the Death Certificate.

He said deregistration should be done to honour those who had passed away, especially when they had carried their work for the family.
