Marriage Registration In Dehradun

Marriage Registration In Dehradun.The Supreme Court of India, in 2006, made it mandatory to register all marriages. In India, a marriage can either be registered under the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 or under the Special Marriage Act, 1954. The Hindu Marriage Act is applicable to Hindus, whereas the Special Marriage Act is applicable to all citizens of India irrespective of their religion.All the documents should be attested by a Gazetted Officer and the parties will have to deposit a fee with the cashier at the sub-registrar and attach the receipt with the Application Form. The Hindu Marriage Act provides for registration of an already solemnised marriage, and does not provide for solemnisation of a marriage by a Marriage Registrar. However, the Special Marriage Act provides for solemnisation of a marriage as well as registration by a Marriage Officer. To be eligible for marriage in India, the minimum age is 21 years for males and 18 years for females.

A marriage can be solemnized between any two Hindus if the following conditions are fulfilled, namely:

  • If neither party has a spouse living at the time of the marriage,
  • If neither party is incapable of giving a valid consent to it in the consequence of unsoundness of mind,
  • Though capable of giving a valid consent, neither of them has been suffering from any mental disorder  or to such an extent as to be unfit for marriage and the procreation of children,
  • If neither of them has been subject to recurrent attacks of insanity or epilepsy.
  • The bride has completed the age of 18 years and the bridegroom the age of 21 years at the time of marriage,

Exceptions and other conditions:-

The eligibility conditions above have some exceptions.

First, even if you are within degrees of prohibited relationship, you can get married if your custom allows you to do so. This exception will apply even when the customs of only one of the parties allow such marriage.

The second exception is the citizenship rule for court marriages in Jammu & Kashmir. If the marriage is taking place in the state of J & K, then both parties must be citizens of India. Moreover, both parties should have domicile in a state to which this act applies. This means that foreign nationals cannot get married in Jammu & Kashmir under this Act.

There is another condition for foreigners. They must live in India for at least 30 days before the marriage. They can get a proof of residence from their local police station.
