Woman Declared Alive after 57 years! Court rectifies 'death' blunder

Maladevi Gudah Declared Alive 57 Years After Her “Death”. The Supreme Court has ordered the civil registry on Friday 5th January 2024 to rectify the birth certificate of Maladevi Gudah, a 59-year-old farmworker residing in Mare d’Albert.

This rectification aims to remove the erroneous annotation declaring her deceased.

In June 2018, Maladevi Gudah received a birth certificate with an annotation stating that she had been declared “deceased” on 10th November 1966, when she was only two years old.

Convinced of this mistake, she approached the Supreme Court to obtain the rectification of her birth certificate and the cancellation of the death certificate issued in her name.

In her complaint, she states that she was born on 13th March 1964 in Mare d’Albert, daughter of Rajmon Totah and Bedwantee Prem, and had 11 siblings between 1944 and 1969.

She also got married civilly to Vidyanan Gudah in May 1995 and obtained a biometric national identity card on 4th March 2014.

During the hearing, Maladevi Gudah highlighted the administrative complications she had to face, expressing concerns about her retirement pension.

A representative from the Registrar of Civil Status presented a copy of the original death certificate, indicating an inconsistency between different documents.

He confirmed that the declaration of death had been signed by Maladevi’s father and someone named Jugdishsingh Ramlagan.
