No need to send your application through online. Just upload your info online and download marriage certificate and us it .
Read this news you may understand :

" You needn't visit the sub-registrar's office in Bangalore to get your marriage registered. Forget all the hassles, and apply and print your certificate online -all from your home.
Karnataka people always will expert to do all the works done in their door steps without spending single praise. To make the peoples dream come true, Karnataka's stamps and registration department has decided to launch a dedicated portal, on the lines of property registration, to avoid visits to the registration office.

"They are streamlining the process of getting marriage certificates online. Till now, you could apply online and obtain the certificate in person. Now they are going to introduce the new system in a registrar's office in Bengaluru and roll it out in the rest of the state by year 2018 ,'' inspector-general of registration and commissioner of stamps told to media. The system will integrate data from all the sub-registrar offices in the Karnataka state to check multiple marriages by either groom or bride.
The Karnataka government issues certificates under the Hindu Marriage Act and the Special Marriage Act. Only 15% of the marriages in the Karnataka state are registered. The online initiative is aimed at encouraging more couples to register their marriages, as mandated by the Supreme Court and the National Law Commission.
At present, a couple has to make many visits over at least a month to get the marriage certificate after submitting documents like identity proof, age proof and details of two witnesses to the ceremony.

The Karnataka government has proposed to introduce the Aadhaar-based online marriage registration to minimize the documentation and verification process. "All steps -from applying to printing the certificate -will be online.The certificate will be computer-generated with security features like hologram and machine-readable (QR) code, and carries the registrar-general's digital signature,'' .

You can download marriage certificate like original one. A senior Registration department official said the department was planning to similarly roll out birth and death certificates online "
If you don't have Aadhar you cannot register your marriage online and As usual you have to visit sub registrar office many times .

Even though if you have Aadhar , no registrar will allow you to get your marriage certificate online. They will put queries about your document and they will force you to visit marriage registrar office .

Complications exerted :

1.There are many chances for malpractice by the couples
2. There are many chances to do marriage registration without the knowledge of each other.
3. If any misunderstanding in the future, they will dispute the validity of online marriage certificate

Note : Many counties including developed countries in the world still not introduced the online marriage registration.
First time in the world the Karnataka Government going to online marriage registration felicity in world. It it was successfully implemented, it will be great achievement for Karnataka Registration department.

No online marriage certificate felicity available in Bangalore , Karnataka . You have to visit sub registrar office . Find our personal experience.

Here's I wish to explain some information about one of my friend’s special marriage with US national under the Special Marriage Act. They did not use any consultancy for the civil Marriage in Bangalore , Karnataka.

They chose to get married in Bangalore , Karnataka for two reasons - first, because the groom is from Koramangala and they were planning to live in Bangalore ,Koramangala for the proximate short term and processing their Indian visa (& later PIO card) would be easier with an Karnataka marriage certificate. And second, the certificate would be in English and more easily acceptable in their country also.

They planned to do their marriage in Bangalore and US as well. I advised that getting married legally in two countries was NOT a good idea & technically illegal - instead get married once and make that marriage certificate internationally acceptable by getting the necessary attestation.


For the Special marriage, I strongly suspect things differ from state to state and even district to district. Things like 30 days notice for Civil Marriages are the same but minute document requirements & processing times surely differ. In Bangalore itself the experience at the Sub registrar Koramangala are completely different.

So we chose to get married under the Special Marriage Act 1954 (Civil Marriage) because neither of us are religious and we have the luxury of time on our side. First you have to register the 'intent' to marry at the Marriage Office under whose jurisdiction you fall. From what I saw, this can even be done by parents or an agent (though the form does require signatures of the bride & groom) and basically involves submitting proofs of ID/age & residence proof. (Divorce decrees and Municipal Death Certificates for divorcees/widowers).
Our form said the following documents are acceptable in Karnataka:

*Age Proof - Birth Certificate, School Leaving Certificate, MARK SHEET, Passport
*Residence Proof - Ration Card, Election Card, Passport

All documents had to be notarized (the cheap rubber stamp notarizing, not the wax stamp one with revenue stamps..)

We used bride passport for proof of identity, age & address. groom used his passport (with valid Indian visa) for identity & age, but since her passport does not carry a residential address , we had also brought an extract from his municipality verifying his date of birth, parents, proof of address etc. Even though we had to fill his address on the 'Intended Marriage Form' they never cross checked it or looked at the document (which was in another language, so lucky us!). If you cannot get this you can get a letter from your Consulate. See below.

Another tricky part for foreigners or NRIs marrying in Karnataka is that one of the marriageable parties has to prove residency in the area for the previous consecutive 30 days. If someone does not provide their passport as an identify document we don't know how they would check this, though they did check my passport immigration stamps to see when we had returned from our trips abroad earlier that year. I know in places like Goa where there are lots of foreigners getting married this is uniformly enforced (though obviously there are ways to bribe your way around it with a false police certificate).

Another thing we planned meticulously for (because we read on the internet that it was a requirement) was a No Objection letter from bride Consulate. Basically it was a letter from her Consulate in Mumbai stating all his details (Name, Passport No, Age, Address) and saying that marital status was 'Unmarried' and that according to her country's law there is no impediment to him entering into matrimony with Indian national named ABC, born on etc.
It seems like a pretty important document because how else would you know if a foreigner was married elsewhere. BUT our wonderful Marriage Office didn't even glance at it. Be aware that some people on other forums have said that this was asked of them.

OK so once the intent to marry is submitted you get to pick a date to solemnize the marriage - it has to be at least 30 days after submission of intent, depending on their appointment availability & your choice. They are supposed to post the 'Intended Marriage Notices' up for those 30 days to give time for people to come forward with objections. I'm not sure if they really do!

On the day of solemnization, we had to come with 3 witnesses (each brought 3-4 stamp size passport photographs plus original ID photo proofs & copies). They made us fill declaration form with details of our witnesses & took their ID proof copies. During the 'marriage' the couple and all the witnesses will have to sign the main Marriage register & say their 'vows'. It's basically the most unromantic, bureaucratic procedure ever with lots of waiting involved. The Koramangala Marriage Office refused to let us face each other while exchanging vows and made me face her and recite them.

The original marriage certificate is part of their Register which stays with them. For your 'copy' of the Marriage Certificate they try and tell you to come back after one week, but we insisted and got it on the same day. We did not have to bribe anybody, but were very assertive. They charged another 4500/- without receipt.

Finall we got two copies of original marriage certificate within a day .
