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 accused; (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.

Currently the registration process little bit easier than Tamilnadu. So you can try to do your register marriage in Bangalore itself. Any one must have local address proof to complete the marriage registration in Bangalore.
Normally the rental agreement , Bank statement and Gas bill will be accepted by the marriage registrar in Bangalore. Some registrar will not acrept those documents for marriage registration.
In these circumstances, Based on available address proof, you can obtain nativity certificate from local tahsildhar and it will be accepted by the marriage registrar office in Bangalore and entire Karnataka state.

Sir
Bride's father forcing for marriage and he is searching groom aggressively. So they cannot wait until 30 days. So let me know there is any chance to complete the marriage registration in one day process in Bangalore. Once the registration is completed, we can try to convince the girl parents.
We tried in Tamilnadu but they are asking parents presence for complete registration. Please advise our only hope is Bangalore and we have to do register marriage without parents knowledge.
