Goa authorities have kept the marriage proceedings of Sanjay Dutt and Manyata on hold after Margao division administrative officer suspended the residence certificate issued to Manyata.
"All the marriage registration proceedings are kept in abeyance pending further orders," Sub Registrar, Chandrakant Pissurlekar, who had accepted the declaration of marriage said.
Pissurlekar said that they will not allow the final signature on the marriage, which has to be done within 90 days, till the Mamlatdar (senior administrative officer in district collectorate), clears off the suspension of the residence certificate.
Manyata had attached a residence certificate of a local panchayat, recommended by a talathi (revenue officer) in South Goa Collectorate.
The district administration has already suspended the talathi for recommending the issuance of the residence certificate without verifying whether Manyata really stayed in the area for last six months.
Sanjay and Manyata's declaration of marriage was submitted in the sub registrar's office on February 7.
Authorities state that if second signature is not executed within 90 days, the marriage would be 'null and void'.
There is no legal validity for the marriage until second signature is done on the declaration, they said.
The sub registrar also stated that Manyata will have to submit her decree of divorce before doing the second signature on the declaration.
"The decree has to be submitted before final declaration of marriage and till now she is yet to submit it," Pissurlekar said.
