Procedure for registering a solemnised hindu marriage

Kindly explain the procedure for registering a solemnised Hindu Marriage in Maharashtra.

(The groom has been residing in Mira-Bhayander City, Maharashtra for more than 6 months prior to the date of marriage i.e. 16th November, 2016. The bride resided in Ahmedabad for more than 6 months prior to marriage. The marriage was solemnised in Ahmedabad.)

Is there a prescribed format to be issued by the priest who solemnised the marriage? Please provide a proforma for such a Certificate from a priest. 

Can the marriage be registered online with the intent to bypass corrupt government officials and red-tapism?

Please provide the name, designation and address of the registering officer for practical purposes.

Introduction

A Marriage Certificate is a significant document that offers proof of marriage. In most jurisdictions, a marriage certificate is issued by a government official only after the civil registration of the marriage. It is the proof of registration of a marriage.

A marriage which has already been solemnised can be registered either under the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 or under the Special Marriage Act, 1954. The Hindu Marriage Act is applicable in cases where both the husband and the wife are Hindus, Buddhists, Jains or Sikhs, or in cases where they have converted into any of these religions. In case either the husband or the wife or both are not Hindus, Buddhists, Jains or Sikhs, the marriage is registered under the Special Marriage Act, 1954. Further, the marriage can be solemnised between any two persons under the provisions of the Special Marriage Act, 1954.

Eligibility

  • Either Bridegroom or Bride can register their marriage.
  • Bridegroom/Bride should have completed 21/18 years respectively
