An application with the family court needs to be filed to obtain a guardianship certificate. guardians appointed by the court are the guardians appointed by the virtue of the court's empowerment. Under the Guardians and Wards Act,1980, the jurisdiction is conferred on the district court. The district court on its own discretion appoints any person whenever it thinks it to be better for the welfare of the child.
