At the bottom of the type of relation, you will get another option in which you have to write your relatives’ birth date. So this website has given you two options. If you know the details of your relative birthday with its year, month, and date, you can select the lowest option. But if you know the exact year of your relative i.e how old he/she is then you can select the first option.

The declaration is very important for this form. When you make a declaration agreement in a form, it is understood that all your information is correct and it is also understood that it has filled the form according to your information.
Therefore, you also get the declaration section in this form. For this, you are confirmed to name your city or village, your state, and your district again.
