Marriages are said to be made in heaven but in India, it is important to get the marriage registered in order to get legal certification. Any person in India is obligated to get his/her marriage registered under the given law as per the verdict of the Supreme Court of India.

Why is registration Compulsory

The marriage registration has been made compulsory under Hindu Marriage Act of 1955 or the Special Marriage Act of 1954. This authenticates the marriage and makes it legally certified. The unregistered marriages are not considered to be illegal or void in India but registration is always preferred. There are various reasons due to which registration of marriage has been made compulsory in India. Some of the reasons are as follows:

To keep a check on any fraudulent marriages

To keep a strict vigil on child marriages

To help get the person his or her rights in case of any dispute in the marriage

To easily avail some facilities and get documents like passport, life insurance policies, opening bank accounts etc

How Can the Registration be Done

Marriage registration is not a very cumbersome process. It just requires the married couple to apply for the registration by putting an application. For registering the marriage under the Hindu Marriage Act or the Special Marriage Act there are some set of documents which are required, these are as follows:

Signed application by both applicants

Address Proof can be shown by any of the following documents: Adhaar Card, Ration Card, Voter ID, Passport, and License

Birth Date proof of both Husband and wife

Passport size photographs 2 each, 1 photograph of the marriage

Marriage affidavit to be submitted by both the applicants separately

Marriage invitation card from both the parties

All these documents should be duly signed and self-attested by the applicants and then the documents are later submitted to the concerned officer.

Marriage registration can also be done online by going through the website. Thereafter, you can select the district and fill in the required details. After filling in all the details the application can be submitted, post that a temporary number is allotted that is printed on the acknowledgement slip and the application process is complete. The printout of this can then be presented when the appointment is fixed.

Appointment

Under the Hindu Marriage act of 1955, the appointment is to give within 15 days of online registration and any person who has attended the marriage can be the witness. The witness must carry a proof of residence and the PAN Card. In case of a Hindu Marriage Act a fee of Rs. 100/- is applicable which is deposited to the cashier of the district.
