    I have been married in Jharkhand in 2012, my spouse is also from same place, and we are leaving here in Virar since last 4 years and we have all the documents like Aadhar card pan card and Passport from Virar address. Could we get a marriage certificate from mumbai?

    1. Hi Lucky,

      You need to approach Jharkand for Marriage Certificate as marriage happened in Jharkand. You don’t need residential address proof for marriage certificate. The requirement document is proof of marriage that is Marriage invitation,photograph and three witness with Adhar Card.

    1. Hi Shubhra,

      The rent agreement can worked if your living their for more that 6 months. You can apply for Marriage under special marriage act. I advice to consult from Lawyer as your Boyfriend lives in US and may be NRI. So, you may need to fulfill some legal documentations before you go for marriages.

    Though we are living in Mumbai from last 5 years

    SO please let me know how to get the marriage certificate as we are traveling outside Mumbai soon after marriage and would be needing that soon for hassle-free vacation.

    1. Hi Akash Pandey,

      You won’t get any certificate on the day of registered marriage. You need to wait 6 months to get Marriage Certificate.
      You can get challan or receipt or acknowledge from Marriage Registrar on same day. That can be proof of marriage till you get marriage certificate.

      You can apply for marriage to marriage registrar. But Marriage Certificate wont issue immediately. You will get Acknowledge of Marriage.

      For Visa process you need to Change the name to all document you own. For Marriage certificate you need to apply at Local Municipal Corporation.

      You can hire Lawyer to more details and clarification.

      Thank you,

  14. Hello,

    Very informative post. Thanks 🙂

    We intend to get married as per the special marriage act 1954.
    The bride is an NRI and is currently in Canada.

    1. Is it okay if i dont have her original documents at the time of submitting the Notice of Intended Marriage ?
    I have the attested copies though which she sent via courier.
    Id be able to show the originals only during solemnization. Is this fine ?

    2. In the application, the current address of the bride is her Canadian address.
    Her canadian driving license has the address mentioned. Is that a valid ID here in India for registration?

    1. Hi Abhishek,

      Kindly hire legal advisory for same. As without to process with foreign marriage you need to declare same in court

  16. Hi,
    Me and My wife got married in Goa on 23rd November.
    i am from Mumbai while my wife is from Lucknow. We are staying with my parents which has been my permanent address all throughout and in all my documents. While my wife has her passport and aadhar card with lucknow address. How do we procure a marriage certificate with the following documents as i heard that in maharashtra to get a marriage certificate both me and my wife should have the same address proof incase the marriage has taken place outside maharashtra.
    Kindly guide us.
    Thanks in advance

    1. Hello Pratik,

      Still you can get Marriage Certificate from Local Corporation Office (Municipal Body). You need Marriage Invitation and three witness who can say they were present during marriage. And supportive document can be Adhar Card and Pan Card. Also they may ask photo with witness while providing Marriage certificate.

      If you give me which Municipal Office you’re approaching than I can give more details.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

      1. Hi Yashwant, i am facing same situation. Me & my wife stay in Mumbai but we got married in Mangalore. We want marriage certifiacate from Mumbai. Andheri east Municipal office said they do not do outside Maharashtra. They have asked us to approach Khar court. They do it from there. Please assist.

        Thanks & Regards,

        1. Hi Dhanraj Suvarna,

          Hire a Lawyer who can make affidavit for you and submit to Marriage Registrar for further process. It is quite difficult and time consuming process. Or else you can issue Marriage Certificate from Kerala itself.

          Thank you,

          Yashwant Naik

  17. Dear Sir,
    Thanks for sharing such a informative post… Keep the good work going…
    I have some queries regarding the above post…

    ->Both of us are from Raigad district and on passport the address is also showing the same. But because of some family issues we are not comfortable to register it in raigad district because district is having only one registrar’s office in Alibaug. Is there any provision that we can register it form Pune? In that case what all documents are necessary for the same…

    Thank you in advance….

    1. Hello Saurabh,
      Extremely sorry to delay in reply.
      If you wish register your marriage from Pune than you need Address belong to Pune Address. You must be living in same place for more than 6 months atleast. If you have rented house than that Rent agreement must be registered and notary made.

      I still recommend you to do process from Raigadh district only. As document are ready with you. Marriage registrar wont send any notice to family but they inform District officer too.

      Let me know if you need any further query.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  18. Hi Yashwant,

    Firstly, I would like to appreciate your work it’s commendable…Kudos!!

    I have a question. I wanted to marry my Gf & she recently moved from Mumbai to Pune( Don’t have Rent agreement register) as she is staying with me.Can we still marry without any hurdle?

    Lastly, When the registar forward the notice to the district of each party’s permanent residence.
    i)Do our parents get to know about our intended marriage?
    ii)Will the intended marriage be displayed at our native court/office? as we belong to diff states?
    iii)Her parents are of high influence, so can any Babu or officer can inform her parents in case the registar sents notice to her district permanent residence?
    Appreciate your kind help.

    1. Thank you Rahul for appreciation. I will try my best to resolve your query.
      My answer are following –

      Rahul Question – I wanted to marry my Gf & she recently moved from Mumbai to Pune( Don’t have Rent agreement register) as she is staying with me.Can we still marry without any hurdle?

      Yashwant Naik Answer – No, you can use Pune house paper as document because of it is not registered. Better you get register it. And you can use same address as document because living together is not problem by law. But you must rented the house for more than 6 months.

      Rahul Question – i)Do our parents get to know about our intended marriage?

      Yashwant Naik Answer – No, Marriage Registrar wont send any document or letter to family. But they sometime hang list people are getting married on that day.

      Rahul Question – ii)Will the intended marriage be displayed at our native court/office? as we belong to diff states?

      Yashwant Naik Answer – No, The notice will be appear where you applied for intent to marriage.

      Rahul Question – iii)Her parents are of high influence, so can any Babu or officer can inform her parents in case the registar sents notice to her district permanent residence?

      Yashwant Naik Answer – What it mean by you? Highly influential means what? Does they are above Law and Order ? Dont worry till girl support you. If girl turn away than you may be in trouble so better you make her strong. Once you married just inform police about this. Or you can intervene police earlier too.
      Or Hire lawyer to protect you guys from any hurdle.

      Rahul, it is simple and easy process to carry on. Best of luck for you.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

    3. Will I get any preference in selecting the date post 30 days of Notice period?

    1. Hello Ganesh,

      You need One address proof. For this if anyone from couple need to belong to same district…If your address support Mumbai and partner has different state address than it can be workable.

      You need to do first online application and take print out and submit to nearest Marriage Registrar along with original document. For you Khar would be nearest Marriage registrar.

      You may get chance to select date.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

      1. Thanks Yashwant for the reply its really helpful.

        Have filled in the application form, since the boy resides outside of mumbai will get his signed.
        Do we need to get the signature across the photograph as nothing is mentioned as such.

        By when can we get the marriage certificate, is it possible to get it the same day.

        1. Hello Ganesh Jain,

          Extremely sorry delay in reply.

          Yes we need to follow the procedure decided by Government.

          After marriage registration and Court marriage you will get copy of acknowledgement which you can show to Nearest BMC ward and they will issue the marriage certificate.

          Thank you,

          Yashwant Naik

    We are planning to marry in December 2019.

    If we fill in the Intended Marriage Form online now November 2017, then will that Notice be valid for such long Duration ? or We will have to re-initiate the application process again ?

    Does that notice has some validity period?

    Does this Notice implies that we are married ?? or its just notification that we want to get married ?

    1. Hello Parab,

      Oh, You planned to marry 2019, NO Sir, the notice only valid for 30 days. SO prior 30 days notice is important.

    but we want to get married in mp status , can you sagest how can i get married i have a all document and both are family dont have a problem , i go to mumbai but there is no witness ,

    Please give me complete information

    1. Hello Samee,

      To get married from Court needs to fulfill documentation and paper work process.
      Even if you shift to Mumbai still u need some supportive document and witness too.

      The witness is very important to prevent further complication.

      You can’t do process on the basis of MP document or witness.

      Better you get married at temple and lodge a complaint in police station for safety.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  23. Hi Sir,

    We are in a relationship and now we want to get married early because of our family problem, but at least one year we do not want to disclose it. Is this possible?
    My questions are..
    1) If we apply for marriage in a Mumbai court, will the court notify our respective families of our marriage application?
    2) After the marriage, will we have to report to your local police station? Because many people told me that you need to inform your local police station.
    3) If we report to the police station in Mumbai, the police will inform our families?

    Please give me complete information of my above questions.
    Thanks in advace

    1. Hello Harshad,

      You can apply for court marriage with three witness for both of you.

      Also, court won’t notify family. But they put your appointment details in notice board …

      You no need to go to police station. If anyone family is creating problem and against marriage that time only you need to inform police.

      Also I advice you their is no need to wait for year inform now only to your family. Because they may be dreaming for your marriage and after year if you disclose this than it can be heart breaking to them

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

      1. Hi Sir,

        Thank you for this valuable information.

        Now I have one question again. As you say court will put our appointment details on notice board. Will they put our details on notice board with our photos?

        I visited khar office last week and saw a photocopy of application of some other couple with their photos. When I checked with the officer, he said they applied for court marriage so they will keep the form on notice board for 30 days. He also said they will send the same copy to bridegroom district register officer Eric even if it is different state.

        Regards,

      2. Can I ask the Marriage registrar to come home on a specific date for the signing? Is there any form or application to be made for that?
      Ans – This is happening in movie. You need to visit to your nearest marriage registrar office. That also on date assign by them.

      Ans – Yes you need to carry all originals for verification

      4. Is signing and applying for Marriage certificate different processes?

        1. In your post under Filling Husband and Wife’s details, you mention that we should keep Permanent and Present as same. But in the case of my husband his permanent address is of Kolkatta but he’s living in a rented house in Mumbai. What should I do then?

        2. Some questions with regard to the documents to be submitted –
        – Can I use passport for residential proof if it is expired?
        – What if the age proof is wrongly mentioned on driver’s license? Can I still use it for address proof?
        – Can I use PAN card as age proof?
        – Is Election card same as Voter ID card?

        3. Is there any no. for the Registrar’s office in Khar? What are the timings? Is there any website?

        4. I made an application online and had taken a print of the notice? But now I want to make changes. How can I do that? Should I make a completely new application?

  27. Hello Mr Naik,
    First of all thank you for all the information provided on this webpage. Very helpful. I do have specific concerns and want you to shed some light on it.
    I am a New Zealand citizen with OCI status ( Overseas Citizen of India), I would be marrying my fiance in Mumbai who is an Indian Citizen.
    1. Would this marriage be registered under the Act as per Indian Law?
    2. What documents would I need to provide to satisfy my proof of residency…? I live with my parents in Mumbai whenever I visit them but I dont have any documentation for the Indian address.
    3. I understand the marriage date is fixed 30 days after submission of documents but can the date of Marriage be negotiable? or we have to be present when the registrar asks us to.
    4. Does it really take 90 days to get the certificate of marriage? I read elsewhere the certificate could be available much sooner. Kindly advise.

    Kind regards,
    Saurabh Sawant

  34. Hello Sir,

    I am working in Pune and my fiancé is studying in germany. He will be coming in India in December for 10 days. Can I complete the above procedure alone here? I have few queries
    1) We have address-proof of our hometown which doesn’t come under Pune district. But I am living in Pune for 2years. However I don’t have registrered rental agreement here. So where should I apply for? My hometown district or Pune?
    2) Can I submit the online form now( in July) and get the form signed by fiance and give notice in November? So that the final marriage date will be in December
    3) Is it ok if I provided attested document copies of my fiance as, he can not leave the Original documents in India.

    waiting for your reply.

    1. Hello Nikita,

      Thank you for asking question here. My reply in line below –

      1) We have address-proof of our hometown which doesn’t come under Pune district. But I am living in Pune for 2years. However I don’t have registrered rental agreement here. So where should I apply for? My hometown district or Pune?

      Ans – If you want to do marriage from Pune Jurisdiction than you must have proof of address. As per rule the address you mention in form, is where you live for more than 6 month. And if you rented that place than that need to be registered with Police Verification. Otherwise your rental agreement wont be valid address proof.

      2) Can I submit the online form now( in July) and get the form signed by fiance and give notice in November? So that the final marriage date will be in December

      Ans – You can submit the form and do take printout and both sign now. But you cant submit to Marriage Registrar officer as when you submit form to Marriage Registrar than by rule Marriage Registrar need to be give after 30 days date for Marriage Registration. And if you don’t appear that day than everything goes null & void. So, better your process 30 days before you intent to marry.

      3) Is it ok if I provided attested document copies of my fiance as, he can not leave the Original documents in India.
      Ans- While Submitting Print out of form and document you need to submit Notary Xerox copy and need to present original document to verification. Any one can submit document (either Nikita or her BF) but original document is important to carry.

      I hope my answer will fulfill your need. Let me know if you have any further query.

      1. Hello,
        Had a question about marriage certificate, will that not be given on the date of marriage, what is given on the date of marriage then?
        If I need to apply for partner visa of another country post marriage will we need marriage certificate for visa application?
        Kindly clarify

        1. Hi Ruchi Nair,

          Marriage Registrar will give you an acknowledgement of marriage on the day of marriage.

          That acknowledgement can consider as marriage certificate. You can get Government Marriage Certificate after three month of marriage from Municipal Corporation office.

          First check if Marriage Registrar acknowledgement validation for visa process. I hope they accept that as it is proof of Marriage with State Government Stamp over their.

  41. Sir,
           Meri gf ki umar leaving certificate se 18yrs ho chuki hai aur birth certificate se 1yrs  se kam hai to thoda problem hone se mujhe abhi shadi karni hai to uske ghar wale birth certificate ko lekar kuch kar sakte hai kya plz sir mujhe sahi rasta dikhao hum dono ekdusre ke bagair rah nahi sakte. Uske paas adhar card aur leaving certificate ki true copies hai aur mere paas bhi leaving certificate ki true copies aur adhar card hai to itna bas hai kya? leaving certificate college me jama kiya hai to koi problem to nahi hogina? Plz sir mujhe kisi bhi haal me shadi karni hi hai to mujhe plz madad kijiye plz

    1. Hi Akshay,

      If you have adhar card than nobody ask for Birth certificate. Do she have pan card.

      Also if her family members and not supportive than they can make issue and you will fall in trouble. Because after police complain they show birth certificate to police than they won’t consider Adhar card . And marriage can be void on the basis of that.

      Plan properly.

  42. Sir m b court marriage krna chahti hu apne bf se…but Sir peso k problem ho r h…aap bta skte ho kitni fees lgti h isme…or kitne din phle registration krana hota h

    1. नमस्ते रेशमा,

      कोर्ट मॅरेज के लिए सरकारी कर्च 1000 से भी कम है| परन्तु अगर आप कोई एजेंट के सहारे काम करवाए तो 8000 तक लग जाएगे|

      मुझे बताइए आप कहा रहते है तो शायद कुछ हेल्प कर पाउ|

      शुक्रिया,

  52. Hello,

    I have nominated my mother and my married elder sister to be the witnesses for my marriage registration and have got date in June.

    However, I am hearing from my friends and relatives that we cannot nominate blood relations, is that true? Could you please let me know if there are any rules around witnesses?

    Thanks in advance!

    Kind regards,
    Pooja

    1. Hello Pooja,

      Firstly many congrats for your marriage.

      Secondly, their is no term in law where it mention that you can’t have witness from same friend or relatives. The only crerteria for witness is they have valid document as mentioned in intend to marry clause and need to be mature and above 18 years old.

      Do with documentation and get dates.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  56. hello!
    m a 20year old Assamese Muslim. i wish to marry a 25year old Assamese Hindu under special marriage act.

    i have birth and leaving certificate, pancard and bank passbook.
    i did not put my name in the voter list so i don’t have voter id(can obtain one in 2021 at the time of election)
    none have adhar card in Assam and Meghalaya, the process have not started yet.

    the address in my pancard and bank passbook is not permanent, it’s the rent house address of Guwahati where my parents live.

    i live in Bombay but don’t have any address proof(the rent agreement is in his name)

    he lost his voter id last year in Guwahati but have signed an application from police station and has xerox copies of his voter id(he too can obtain voter id in 2021)
    the address in his bank passbook is his permanent address of Guwahati.
    are my documents enough for the procedure?

    1. Hello Syeda,
      Your case is very complicated. Such confuse document can be leads to disqualification of Marriage Intent application.
      So, I recommend you do Marriage as per Arya Samaj, where they help you to start new life. Their you don need any application and process with less documents.
      Or Else you need lawyer help.

      Thank you,

  58. Hi….Yashwant Naik Sir,
    I and my gf both from gujarat state. I belongs to muslim and she is hindu. Can we apply for register marrage in mumbai or other place in maharashtra? Secondly, can any documents send by the registrar for verification to gujarat government offices. I want my marrage registration secret, so please give me information about it…
    Thanking you…..

    1. Hello Irfan,

      You need to apply at Gujarat’s marriage registrar office only due document belong to that state.

      Also please make note that no government agency send any intent to marriage detail to any state or bridegrooms place. It is always remain secret.

      Since it is inter-cast marriage you need to select Special Marriage option.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  59. Dear sir,
    I registered for special marriage and I got date for the same. i am from kalyan and girl is from pune. so they gave me reciept and xerox copy of notice of intended marriage to sent it by registered post to pune office compound and bring the slip on registered post on marriage date. so my query is that will the pune registered office will inquire at girls residential address ?? as we are planning to keep it secret from parents.

    Pritam.

    1. Hello Pritam,

      As per process, every intent to marriage detail will store in Pune. And that also done by Court Marriage Registrar itself.
      Secondly, you can’t register for marriage in two different office.

      I advice you to enquire why they want, is you to send document to Pune office.

      No Government official send any notification to bride or bridegroom place.

      If you find difficulties to process than let me know about this.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  60. Hello Yashwant,
    Before I proceed to ask my query I really wanted to thank you for this article. It has been really helpful.
    My query being, is the notice of intended marriage sent to the residential address of the bride/bridegroom during the 30 day period? Secondly, where can one find these notices put up at the marriage register office. I am looking at the Khar/bandra office as it is convenient for both of us.

    Thanking you in advance.

    1. Hello Prasad,

      Here Notice to intend means your informing Government about your willingness to marry as per India Constitution Law for Marriage.

      No government office send or declare or showcase your intent to marriage. Detail kept everything secret until any legal complication arise.

      Hope my reply satisfy all of your query.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  61. I want to marry a muslim girl m being a Buddhist. I am having all certificate but she have only pan card and aadhar card. can we proceed with only these doc?

  62. Hi Yashwant

    Few queries related to the post.

    1. Is the document of registration we receive from the marriage registrar sufficient as a marriage proof or do we need to get some additional registrations done ( like in BMC office or any other procedure). Will this suffice as a officially accepted proof of marriage certificate.

    2. can you suggest me a good lawyer as all the lawyers i spoke to are charging nearly 10 k for the registration process.

    1. Hello Zulfikar

      Here are answer for query –

      1) Yes, you can use Acknowledge copy from marriage registrar as proof of marriage. If you need proper certificate of marriage than can apply to Local Municipal body.

      2) Every Lawyer charge same or higher as per complication in process or document. If Bride and Groom documents are perfect and no further complication than you no need Lawyer to process.

      I can provide one agent number for further assistance via email.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  63. Hi Naik sir my problem is about the marriage agreement bcz of our carrier problem we don’t to marry now but speaking honestly we don’t feel we are committed and also in case my gf parents make her marriage at other place then there will be nothing in my hand…so I just want to ask is there any type of agreement that keep us bonded and her parents also can’t do her marriage without our both permission. my gf is ready to sign any agreement. and presently she just given mi one 100rs stamp paper with hand written data I m marring you only if my parents makes my marriage at differ place it will not valid all rights of to decide about. my marriage is reserved to you only and also sign and thumb impression she given. then is it valid for mi as guarantee for she will only marry to mi or that 100rs hand written stamp paper with her sign & thumb impression is of no use for any action. in case of any different circumstances?

    Reply plz sir

    1. Good Morning Harshal,

      Thank you so much asking questions here.

      If both of you not committed than why you want to make MoU agreement between you two?

      You mentioned that agreement is just to safeguard to you as if she married with another man because her family force her to discuss so, and end what you get?

      My answer for this – if both are not committed and sure about future than it is waste of time n money to spend on agreement. For me it is just live-in-relationship​ where couple live together but not committed. As per Indian law no such law exist. So it is free choice.

      Also such interest end with fight, gap in thought, and short term lifestyle.

      But when you ended with relationship both remain empty handed nothing to loose or gain.

      You also mentioned that she made an agreement on stamp paper and sign it off with thump impression. Such an agreement is void legally as no witness mentioned, not legally attested and no documentation made.

      I am not sure what she wrote on agreement???

      Also if both of not committed than such agreement is not useful and required…

      Another point is why girl give assurance to boy why not both of you do such contract…

      I advice both of you for marriage counseling from someone specialist.

      Lastly Indian Law protect both bride n bridegroom from forceful marriage by elder or mass of people. So no one can force anyone to marry.

      I hope you understand entire situation n act wisely.

      Thank you,

          Let me know if you need further assistance.

          Thank you,

          Yashwant Naik

  65. also she has only given that statement on 100rs stamp thts it only there is no any no try of any other govt office signature it just she purchased 100rs stamp written data of commitment on it made sign and thumb impression and given to mi as guarantee then is it of any use? and if not then please if you have any proper agreement or other thing which gives both of us guarantee that we will must marry with each other only.. then please suggest sir…
    Thank you….

    1. Hey Harshal,

      Marriage is agreement of love not stamp paper. Your going to start new life. Love Bonding is important than agreement.

      Relationship with an agreement is forced relationship because legalization and such relationship won’t last long.

      Thanks,

      Yashwant Naik

  67. Hello Sir,
    I am(27) from Borivali Mumbai and bride(26) is from Kalyan. We want to marry, but there are some family issues from Bride’s side. From Groom side, All is ok. Below are some queries:
    1. In which Marriage Registrar office we need to submit the form? (Groom – Borivali West, Bride – Kalyan West)
    2. While submitting documents/applying for Register marriage, We require witnesses along with us. And Original Documents of them?
    3. We(Bride & Groom) do have Passports, Is that fine with the Passport or we require any more proofs?
    4. Is it necessary, that among 3 witnesses somebody should be from Bride’s side?
    5. I heard that, After submitting an application form, If anyone claims that this marriage should not happen/takes place. Then Govt. Stops our request of marriage. Is it true? (If True, Then how to tackle in such case)
    6. Can’t we reduce time duration of 30 days by hiring any agent? If yes then will it legal or Not.
    7. If we do register the marriage, Will anybody can claim that It’s not legal? OR What we get after marriage from Registrar Office. Because we can not apply for the marriage certificate for 90 days. So what’s the proof that we are legally married?

    1. Good Morning Mehul,

      Extremely sorry for delay in replying.

      I will go with you all the query with my answer –

      1. In which Marriage Registrar office we need to submit the form? (Groom – Borivali West, Bride – Kalyan West)

      Answer – you can apply to any marriage registrar office, ideally do it from your Thane , as it is easy to travel for both of you. Nobody can stop u from registration.

      2. While submitting documents/applying for Register marriage, We require witnesses along with us. And Original Documents of them?

      Answer – Maharashtra Government now using e-governance so you have to apply online for intent marriage by checking above link mentioned in post. Their you need to just submit details and take print out. Prepare file for that print out and attach all documents Xerox with attested(notary) (everyone including witness) show to marriage registrar office for approval and verification of documents. Carry original too. Not required witness original documents. Marriage registrar will issue marriage date for you on same day.

      3. We(Bride & Groom) do have Passports, Is that fine with the Passport or we require any more proofs?

      Answer – Passport is valid document for age proof n residential proof. Also add Adhar Card too.

      4. Is it necessary, that among 3 witnesses somebody should be from Bride’s side?

      Answer – Marriage Registrar only need three witness so you can use your three best friend who stick to date. At marriage registrar office no one question you who belong to whom ?? They only need three witness who assure your interest to marry.

      5. I heard that, After submitting an application form, If anyone claims that this marriage should not happen/takes place. Then Govt. Stops our request of marriage. Is it true? (If True, Then how to tackle in such case)

      Answer – Yes this can be possible if
      1) if your married and your remarrying without concern of your wife, if she claims this than marriage can stop.

      2) if she is married and remarrying with you without concern of her husband than her husband can ask for stay

      3) if any of you is mentally ill n not able to take decision than stay can bring.

      4) if bride and bridegroom, or bride or bridegroom, or anyone of them are married and separated but not divorce than family members of either party can be ask for stay

      5) if anyone is less than age to qualify marriage.

      6) if fraudulent​ claimed by any family.

      Once both of qualified for marriage as per Indian marriage law than no one can stop to marry except above conditions.

      6. Can’t we reduce time duration of 30 days by hiring any agent? If yes then will it legal or Not.

      Answer – you have to bribe them. That I don’t recommend you. Better you do temple marriage and than you do marriage registration so both are safe.

      7. If we do register the marriage, Will anybody can claim that It’s not legal? OR What we get after marriage from Registrar Office. Because we can’t​ not apply for the marriage certificate for 90 days. So what’s the proof that we are legally married?

      Answer – once u got Married by marriage registrar they will issue certificate same day is proof of marriage.

      I recommend you to lodge and​ complaint from bride side at local police station to safeguard her interest to marry. They will help you. Or hire legal advisor for same.

      Thanks for asking questions. Do let me know if you looking for more information.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

    1. Hello Naveen,

      You need Age proof for Court Marriage. As per government rule Male need to be 21 years old and 18 years for Female for marriage.

      If you dont have pan card than you need to show some document which proof your age. For age proof you can use
      1) Adhar Card
      2) School Leaving Certificate
      3) Tenth Passing Certificate

      one of above document can be age proof.

      I hope your all query is resolved.

      Thank you,

  70. Hi Mr. Yashwant,
    I have one query. Do witnesses also need to have address of same district. Bride & groom have Thane district address, while one witness has Raigad district address. Will it be a problem?

    1. Hey Karan,

      No Problem at all.

      It is not mandatory that witness must belong to same place. They can be any part of Indian Constituency.

      So, in your case your witness is valid even if he stay at Raigad district of Maharashtra.

      Thank You,

    kindly waiting for reply

    Thank You….

    1. Hey Harsh,

      Don’t worry about notice. Government officials never send any notice to residential address nor they put anything in notice board.

      The rule for 30 days was waiting period for couple from date you applied for intent to marriage. Its kind of appointment.

      Don’t worry just go ahead with plan. Keep document ready with attested copy.

      Thank you,

  76. hi my name is santosh kumar i am from andaman islands and staying in mumbai from last few months my finace her name is soo she is from korea and staying in mumbi from last few year she has the rent agreement and her visa paper to prove it as well as she have indian pan card to i have my adhaar and passport with andaman address and adhaar card also now we want to get married asap as only 10 days we have to goback to andaman with cetificate than will be easy for the Permit to her stay in andaman please suggest what to do to get the marriage certificate asap

    1. Hey Santosh,

      In ten days you can’t get Marriage certificate. You can do this –

      Approach to Arya Samaj at Goregao. Do marriage as per their rituals. They will issue a certificate which is kind of marriage certificate.

      Arya Samaj won’t ask any documents, only need age proof and residential identify, and witness.

      I am wondering why you need marriage certificate in hurry. If you describe me detail than I can help you well.

      Thank You

      Yashwant Naik

      1. mate i want to get married soon because i am from andaman nicobar islands and working there in andaman islandsand she is still in mumbai and i dont have any proofs from maharshtra so its creating issues for us to get married and i am leaving to andaman after 12 days so if we get marriage certificate will be easy to get her in the andaman as andaman comes under Restricted area

        1. Hi Santosh,

          Let me check for this.

          I advice you to hire lawyer for this. A civil lawyer can help you.

          Quickly let me know if you need lawyer assistant.

          Thank you,

  77. Hello Yashwanth

    Firstly i would like to thank you for such a nice and detailed blog about marriage registration .
    I have a few questions As per the website link given by you there is not option for Mumbai city( Tardeo) . Is there is a different website for that ?
    Secondly what is the procedure if the Bride/Groom either one is not an Indian Resident ? will the procedure remain the same ?

    1. Hello Kumar,

      For NRI, you need to check with all legality for Marriage.

      You can’t go online for NRI COUPLE. You have two options –

      1. Hire lawyer who can help you for all correspondence.
      Or
      2. Do temple marriage which is validity and with certificate of Temple they can get Marriage certificate from local corporate officer.

      Thank You,

      Yashwant Naik

        1. Hello Kumar,

          Sure, I will you help you for that also. I will mail u Lawyer detail on your personal email id (which u used for adding comment). Hope you understand privacy of lawyer.

  79. Hello yashwantji,

    I already have a BMC certified marriage certificate which should ideally be a legal document, however for pan card name change they aren’t accepting the same. They need marriage certificate from the court.

    In this case what is to be done

  80. Is it necessary to apply online or can I directly go to the Marriage Registrar office & fill up the forms there with all the required documents? I stay in Thane.

    1. Hey Karan,

      Yes, you first fill the online form and take print out of receipt.

      Submit form along with document at Thane Marriage Registrar.

      And follow procedure.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  81. Hi Yashwant,
    Can you please provide list of marriage registrar’s office. I am not able to find it on any government website?

  82. Hi Yashwant,

    Thanks a lot for your help.
    I have a query related to name before and after marriage.
    Name before marriage is Shraboni Ashok Nag, Ashok is my fathers name.
    for the name after marriage can it be Shraboni Shubhajit Dhar Nag, wherein Shubhajit Dhar is my husbands name. If i fill the document in this way, will it be acceptable.
    As you had mentioned in one of the previous posts that no proof is required for middle name, so if i add my husband’s full name as my middle name, will it be appropriate.

    1. Hello Shraboni,

      Marriage Applicant need to fill the details as per the document added in form. You no need to add your after marriage name, because you dont have proof of marriage yet.

      Once you get married, than marriage registrar will issue certificate, and on the base of that you can further apply for name change at –
      1. Bank Account
      2. Pan Card
      3. Passport etc.

      You no need to worry about name format. Just keep same name as per document you submit to Marriage Registrar.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  83. I wish to know the procedure that is followed after submitting the form.

    I m from Goa and my groom is from Mumbai. We are registering in Mumbai.

    Is there a notification that goes to registrar office in Goa during those 30 days waiting period?
    Do they need any confirmation stating that the couple is not previously married or so

    1. Hello Samruddhi,

      You can register from Mumbai.

      No notification go to Goa Marriage registrar. They only update information to server.

      You need to specify that couple is divorced or not. If your remarring than you need to fill different form with certificate of divorce papers.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  84. Thanks for the info Yashwant.
    I have few queries, In my as well as my husband’s official document our father’s name is not mentioned, however its mandatory to fill the middle name.
    My name has not changed officially after marriage, there is no documentary proof, in that case do i need to fill the same name before and after marriage?
    Please update.
    Thank you

    Regards,
    Shraboni

    1. Hello Shraboni,

      Middle name is not an issue for any documents process in govt agency.

      Here you can use middle name husband name and your hubby can use dad’s name.

      registrar won’t ask questions.

      Let me know if you need more detail.

      Thanks,

      Yashwant Naik

  87. I’m from Andhra Pradesh i have a plan to marry a girl but there is some problems we have to face if we marry actually she has a same surname as mine, and there is saying in our culture that same surname people are relatives by nature, she might be my aunt in relation but there is no blood relation between us it’s also surname which is the main concern, we both really love each other and want to get married, is there any solution for the problem as i think our parents and society won’t allow it.

    1. Hi Nikhil,

      Since society won’t allow you on ground of same surname, may be because of this you can’t approach to temple.

      What I suggest change your surname by notifying gazetted officer with legal notice.

      As per this update your documents like Pan card, passport or Adhar Card.

      Than you apply for marriage registrar. No-one know about you n no one ask you.

      It’s simple n easy.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  88. I tried to register my marriage on the said site but after entering bride’s details it says “Bridegroom or Bride present district does not belongs to this office juridiction”.
    I am staying in Raigad District, Maharashtra and My fiance stays in Vadodara, Gujarat.
    I am registering marriage in Raigad district but it says as mentioned above.
    Please advice what should i do?

    1. Good Morning Shweta,

      In this case you do temple marriage or Arya Samaj Mandir.

      Such institution are not asking much documents and allow couple to start new life.

      Also if family are not supportive than after marriage you should approach nearest police station and inform about your marriage.

      After three months you can get marriage certificate from local munsipality office.

      This also valid marriage in eyes of law.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

    1. Hi Rutuja,

      You need serious legal advice.

      Both couple no need to hide if both are not minors.

      They must approach to nearest police station and inform police that they got married with their will. Show them temple marriage proof.

      If police caught them than they sideline girl and boy can suffer lot in charge of kidnapping.

      For marriage certificate takes time. Till than hire a lawyer who legally protected them.

      Don’t worry police will help them.

      I have mailed you my personal number please call.

      But don’t hide.

      Thank you,

  91. Hi, I am in love with my maternal cousin (Mother’s Sister’s Daughter). I think according to Hindu Marriage Act, such marriages are not possible. Is there any alternate way to do the same ? Please help.

    1. Hello Mahesh M,

      As per Hindu marriage Act you can have option for “Sapinda”. As per this you can marry to Third generation of Family from Mother’s blood relation.

      I suggest to take help of lawyer who is open mind and ready to take this via all judicial strength.  Or any one of party can change the religion and do inter religion marriage under special act.

      An Advice  – check for medical terms too, a same blood relationship can cause to many disorder. So take doctor advice to avoid further challenges in life.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

  92. A date has already been assigned to me after filling the online form and submitting the application. I now wish to change the witness details due to some unavoidable situation. I found that it was possible to still edit my online form and update the witness details there. I have updated it. What should I do now? Can I directly appear on my date with the new witnesses as updated or I have to do anything else? Will any of this affect my date? Please guide. Thank you very much.

    1. Hi Sangita,

      In this case you have to just edit form as per new witness. Save it n take print out.

      Prepare proper file with all documents.

      Directly appear to marriage registrar n show file to them .

      They won’t ask you anything. Even you don’t say about this changes to them . Just follow their instructions.

      Online form is just generating form. That won’t share with any server or computer of marriage registrar.

      I suggest drect appear for marriage on given date.

      Thanks, n wish you very happy marriage life.

      Yashwant Naik

      1. Many thanks for your guidance. It was great relief to read your reply. So I will now directly appear on my given date with all proper documents. Thanks again for your wishes. You are doing a very noble job of guiding couples with this process! 🙂

    1. Hi Sameer,

      Certainly not. But in worst case if it happens. Than edit the online form. Fill the details about your n witness n take print out.

      And use new edited form with all documents.

      The marriage registrar only check current form won’t refer or do cross check about old form ( used for date).

      Also this is advice don’t depend on such witness. The process can be complicate for you.

      Do let me know for further query.

      Thanks,

      Yashwant Naik

  93. We are from kerala. We want to do court marriage and we want to get marraiage certificate on same day. Is it possible? Where do we have to apply? Can anyone suggesest any contact number? We r same religions and same caste.

    1. Hey Anil Kumar,

      A marriage registrar won’t issue certificate. However they issue a proof of marriage with details. This can be used as marriage certificate.

      Further you can get marriage certificate from local munsipality office.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

    1. Hey,

      No you can’t change witness in last moment. If you do so than you have to edit form again n take print out. And use new form with documents.

  95. The bride stay in Amdhra Pradesh whereas Groom stays in Mumbai.
    So if we want to do court mariage in bangalore or hyderabad will it be possibel.
    As we dont belong to those state but will go there in future.

    So please guide me what best for us .
    How we can apply and what document all will be required.

    1. Hi Vikram Jain,

      You can do. As per law you need to fulfill the requirements of documents.

      Like you need residential proof. For residential proof you can submit Leave n Licensee agreement which need to be done as per law like notary n registered with local munsipality or corporation officer. The current residents should be more than 180 days.

      For id proof you can use pan card.

      So, you can approach to any constituency marriage registrar office.

      Another solution is get married at temple or Arya Samaj. They will issue certificate. And later get marriage certificate from marriage registrar.

      You can hire lawyer too.

      Do let me know for further query.

      Yashwant Naik

      1. Thanks for the response. Have few more queries. Please guide me.
        1. As a residential & identity proof can we attach only passport of groom? Because my fiance is not having any identity proof mentioned by you in above reply. He has applied for pan and aadhar but not sure when he will get the same.
        2. Can you please confirm that after filling the online form all we need is the below docs or any more are needed?
        Bride, groom and witnesses – residential proof, identity proof, 5 photos of bridegroom and acknowledgement copy of online form. Is there anything else we need to attach in file?
        3. The information provided on site here say that before going for registration you need to make marriage file which includes notice of intended marriage and reference docs. So from where will i get notice of intended marriage?
        Please guide me on above matter. I wish to register my marriage soon.

        1. Hello Shweta,
           
          Sorry delay in reply for your query.

          Here is answer for your query –

          1) Hey for address proof Passport works. But that address should match with current address where he stay. I guess you can use Passport as Address and Identity proof.
           
          It is suggested to get Pan card as it comes in 60 working days to home via post same as Adhar Card.
           
          2) Yes, your right here. Make proper file of them. The Xerox need to be attested via Notary from Lawyer or any other guy who can do Notary.

          3) Once you make file you need to approach to Marriage Registrar (carry original document too, no need to take witness). He will verify all documents and generate the Notice of Intended Marriage and provide you slip with date. On the give date you need to come again with Witness and Same document original and on that day you will ask to follow certain process to follow.

          Kindly keep document and file clean as sometime Marriage registrar are look frustrated. They wont ask money so never offer money.

          Thank you,
          Yashwant Naik

      2. Hey hi

          If one of witness turn off than you need to edit form from online with witness information n take print out and add to file. That’s it.

          And final day you just appear with Xerox (attested,) and original copy of all of You with your marriage file.

          Thank you,

          Yashwant Naik

    1. Hi Prabhat Kumar,

      Middle is mandatory as no one exist in world without Father or Mother.

      You can use Mother name initial or Father name initial as middle name.

      The marriage certificate is no where use as document so dont worry.

      Thank you,

      Yashwant Naik

          1. Hi ,
            Yes, I needed help with one more thing.
            I talked to a lawyer and he offered two methods :
            1) First one costs 10000 and takes 30 days
            2) Second one costs 14000 and takes 10 days

            I thought the court requires it to be 30 days of notice. How does the 10 day offer work ?

          2. Hi Prabhat Kumar,

            If you check rule book the day for waiting is not mentioned, Registrar has some freedom as they have to avoid unnecessary crowd.
            Here Lawyer act as agent and they have pre booked date slots which they can sell to us.

            They certainly paid some commission to the registrar too.

            The over all government fees is very less.

            To remove all such barrier Government has online form but due to lack of knowledge and confusion we fall easy pray for this.

            For Marriage you dont need Lawyer.

            Thank you,

            Yashwant Naik
