Bachelorhood Certificate: The laws of some countries require that, before a foreigner may marry within their jurisdiction, he/she must produce a certificate issued by the relevant authority of the country of which he/she is a national, stating that the authority does not know of any impediment to the marriage. Such a certificate is known as a “Certificate of No Impediment” or “Nulla Osta Certificate” or “Affidavit of Eligibility to marry” or “Marital Status Certificate”. This certificate also states that the applicant marital status is “Single”.
So, If an Indian citizen want to marry a foreigner ( eg. say a citzen of a European nation), he/she has to submit Bachelorhood certificate to the european nation's government in order to get married in Europe.
I filed an RTI against Ministry of External Affairs and got a reply that
- Nomenclature of Certificate Issued in India is generally called “No Objection Certificate” or “Bachelorhood Certificate”
- Since the power to declare any legal rights is vested in the competent courts in India, the applicant may please be advised to contact concerned court authorities at the place of normally resident
- Indian Missions/posts abroad cannot issue Bachelorhood Certificate in respect of any Indian National.
Its just mentioned that the indian citizen should contact the court but no further details have been given like which court, what is the procedure etc.,
I'm looking for the information on how to obtain this certificate.
Looking forward for your feedback.
Thanks in advance.
