Normally marriage registrars not entertaining the other state people marriage due to some technical reasons.

At Present all marriage need not be registered. Registration will provide proof of
marriage and consequently will limit the scope for avoidable litigation. It is therefore
proposed to provide for compulsory registration of all marriages.

Dowry and wasteful pageantry have become pernicious incidents of
marriages. Inspite of the Dowry Prohibition Act, 1961 (Central Legsilation), dowry
is still playing havoc. Similary the pomp and pageantry, involving as they do
lavish expenditure. It is necessary to provide for stringent measures to eliminate
the said evils. Therefore, it is proposed to make dowry prohibition more rigorous
and to tax marriage involving lavish expenditure.
In order to achieve the aforesaid provisions are made in the Bill for—

(1) compulsory registration of all marriages by a simple procedure of
applying for registration by post;
(2) expandign the scope of the expression dowry to include various froms
of seeking it and penalising the demand and taking of dowry;
(3) making contravention of dowry prohibition a cognizable offence;
(4) placing in prosecutions for contravention the burden of proof on the
(5) imposing disability to hold certain public offices on the culprit; and
(6) levying a luxury tax on a slab basis where the expenses of any
marriage exceeds Rs. 5,000.

The Bill incidentally makes provisions to encourage inter-caste marriages
and restricts the serving of food in connection with a marriage.

A certificate of marriage is an essential document as it establishes the marital status of a couple. It is necessary particularly for women for various purposes like applying for a passport, for visa, or for claiming for bank deposits or insurance benefits in case of sudden demise of her spouse.
Marriage registration in India is done as per the Hindu marriage Act, 1955 or under the Special Marriage Act, 1954.
The age of 21 years must be completed by the groom and18 years by the bride.

Collect an application form from the nearest sub Registrar office in Bangalore. Fill in the details of the bride and groom in the form. You need to get this form signed by three witnesses- relatives or friends.

The original and a photocopy each of these proofs are to be submitted with the form:
• 2B size six photographs of the couple with a blue or white background
• One wedding photograph
• Wedding Card
• Identity proof for both individuals (Pan Card or Voter ID, etc)
• Address proof of the husband(Passport, Ration Card, Aadhar Card, etc)
• Age Proof
• Affidavit in case of name change of the wife after marriage
• Copy of the newspaper where the information of name change was published

Meet the clerk at the sub registrar office for the verification of the information. The data entry operator will fill in your information to the computer and provide you six printouts. Affix the photographs to the printouts and attest the photocopies. Attach the wedding photograph, wedding card and other documents. Both husband and wife need to sign on the six printouts. The sub registrar’s office will keep with them four copies and hand over one copy each to you and your spouse.

This copy is to be held to claim in case of a dispute that will need legal action. In case you have lost or misplaced the certificate, please get back to the sub registrar’s office to do the needful. Certain fees would be collected by the sub registrar to complete the certification.

In case of Inter caste Marriage, NRI Marriage, or Marriage between citizens of different nationals, the process of fetching the marriage certificate would take 30 days to be completed. Additional documents and proofs would be required depending on the country and religion one comes from.

You know very well they are native of Mumbai and living in Bangalore temporarily. Normally other state couples will have all the proofs in the native address only. Also you know the complications in changing address in Government records. It is very difficult to change the address only for marriage registration. It is our fundamental right that we can live anywhere in India. Then why the marriage registrations are always complicated ?
