How to get a marriage certificate in Kerala?

Get Marriage Certificate in Kerala
Honorable Supreme Court of India's division bench has explained in their judgement dated 5th July 2016 that marriage certificate issued by the religious institutions like church, temple, karayogam , mahal committee etc. would not be bearing any legal validity.Foreign countries too would not accept these marriage certificates.So common marriage registration is compulsory. You should visit the local self government body's office where the marriage was conducted. My marriage was conducted at Ettumannur , Kottayam, two hours away from my home. I had to go there to register my marriage along with my wife. The marriage certificate was collected my my brother later.Had to go three days to get that done.

Marriage registration takes place between 10 am and 3 pm at Gramapanchayath / Municipality / Corporation offices.The procedures would be different according to the difference between the date on which you are applying  and your wedding day. Law demands you to register your marriage within 45 days of marriage.

Submit Completed application on prescribed format in duplicates along with the photos of the couple pasted and certificate issued by the religious body (not mandatory), copy of the wedding invitation (not mandatory), two photo copies of SSLC Book or passport or voter id card to prove age. Application fee is ten rupees.

The husband and wife should visit the local self government where the marriage would be registered with two witnesses. The witnesses should have identity proofs with them. You will get the certificate within five days. Sometimes you will get it the same day itself.

If you are applying for the marriage certificate after 45 days of marriage and before 5 years, your application and it's copy should be attested by a gazetted officer, mla, mp or grama panchayath member.Additionally one need to furnish the reason for delay in marriage registration on a seperate white paper affixed with court fee stamp of Rs 5.Rs 100 would be collected as fine.

The paperworks are going to be more tough if the registration is done after 5 years of marriage.Application should be with the permission of Registrar General.Fine would be Rs 250. Registrar General would be the Deputy Director in Panchayath, and Urban Affairs Joint Director in Municipality / Corporation.

Marriage Certificate can be registered online too.Application must be submitted in the website You must sign up as a user to avail the services of this website.Then after logging in , fill up the asked information in form 1. Upload the scanned photos of the couples and then submit the form. Take the printout of the application form and submit it at the local self
government body office along with the requisite fee. Use form number 2 if you are registering the marriage after 45 days.

I lost my voter id card issued by the election commission of india. I lost it along with the driving license in 2007. I took Duplicate Driving Licence from the same RTO in 2008.Now I have been postponing the efforts to take duplication voters id card due to various reasons. One election came in between and election people were giving duplicates but I didn’t went. Now local body election happens in Kerala. So I got an information that the election department at the Tehsil (Taluk) office is starting to issue duplicate voter id cards from 08.10.2010.So I drove to mavelikkara  yesterterday  in my Astar and it was raining heavily. I reached there and find a long queue of people.Since I have completed the form before hand, I just need to find my card id number and put the data and place in it.A person employed there took my application form and he checked the number of my family member in the kiosk in the same room. The kiosk terminal didn’t showed my number. So he forwarded my application

Generate your online e-aadhaar card easily

Aadhaar Demystified   Aadhaar ,meaning foundation in indian languages, has become a hall of shame  or an object of inconvenience for the common man (aam aadmi). Despite a prominent personality like Mr. Nandan Nilekani at it's helm, India's aadhaar project is an epic fail. UIDAI or unique Identification Authority of India is a ghost body created by the central government.It is yet to get complete legal and constitutional status to discriminate people by providing gas subsidy {LPG subsidy for domestic use} only to aadhaar holders. Why India needed an ID System? India was in the dark about it's own citizen.Infiltration from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Srilanka happens all the time.Politicians provide illegal immigrants (a large chunk are run away criminals and terrorists) with indian election id cards inexhange of votes / money. Some crooks were eating up subsidies designed to reach deserving common man [aam aadmi] by forging fake documents and multiple accounts.
