The law allows rectification in simulated birth records and simplifies the adoption process in the country.
Simulation of birth record refers to the "tampering of the civil registry to make it appear in the record of birth that a child was born to a person who is not such child's biological mother, and causing the lost of the true identity and status of such child." It would also fix the status and filiation of a child whose birth was simulated by giving such child all the benefits of adoption and ensuring that he or she would be entitled to all rights provided to legally-adopted children.

Indraratna [2] has made excellent general guidelines for the selection of an appropriated model materials--their constituents should be universally obtainable and nontoxic; the mechanical properties of specimens must be identical to one another and easily prepared under laboratory conditions; the physical properties of the simulated soft rock have to be insensitive to heat and humidity; the strength and deformation properties of the simulated rock must satisfy the mechanical scaling criteria.
