Hi,

Try a google search “Kharagpur birth records” which gives a number of results.

Sorry, I should make it clear that I am not interested in the family tree just need a Baptismal Certificate because we can't deal with her estate without one.  Thanks

Familysearch have some baptism records for that year https://www.familysearch.org/search/record/results?q.birthLikePlace=kharagpur&q.birthLikeDate.from=1933&q.birthLikeDate.to=1933&m.defaultFacets=on&m.queryRequireDefault=on&m.facetNestCollectionInCategory=on&count=20&offset=0

If your Aunt was British then her birth details may be in the Overseas Births and Armed Forces birth  records  which would give a reference for you to get the birth certificate from General Register Office
Or possibly Indian births and Baptisms ( might be too late? )
Available on Findmypast.

Good find,  Valerie also on familysearch with a few more details https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:HGJC-2C6Z
Not sure how to get hold of a physical copy though.

As FindMyPast only shows a transcript you will need to contact the British Library if a copy of her baptism is required.
