Circumcision is simple procedure and can be performed at any point of time in life time In case if it is performed in children, it is preferable to wait till child grows up sufficiently to reduce risk of general anesthesia Preferable to wait at least till one year of age

Is it general anesthesia is necessary for this Circumcision.

Circumcision is recommended 7 days of age onward in many religious and this is the ideal time as the mother and the child in convalescent period more over pain sensation at this age is low in infants.

If it's not an emergency, no fix schedule as it's very normal procedure.

Religious circumcision can be done any time after birth as per the demand Otherwise circumcision should be done after 2 yrs of age

Usually after 1 year

I am agree with Dr Shivraj Agarwal Sir.

Circumcision after 21 days of birth no longer protection from std Better if no contraindications do circumcision before 21 days

If elective can wait till age of 1 year

I agree with Dr Shivraj Agarwal.
