In a significant move, the Supreme Court of India has ordered compulsory registration of all marriages in India. Based on a petition filed by a divorced woman, Seema, a Bench of Justices Arijit Pasayat and P Sathasivam passed the order on October 25, 2006 seeking directions for making marriage registrations compulsory. Now, the Supreme Court of India has ordered the compulsory registration of all marriages in India, irrespective of the religion of the couple getting married. It has given states and union territories that have not yet enacted the rule, in accordance with its 2006 orders, a deadline of three months to frame rules to implement the compulsory registration.

Registration of marriage is compulsory in many countries but it was not mandatory in India till now. Till now, when marriage registration was not compulsory, 80% of people getting registration were young couples who were going in for a ‘love marriage’, meaning a marriage without parental consent. They felt that getting marriage registered made their wedlock stronger and made them mentally secure.

Compulsory registration of marriages is a much needed step specially to prevent the harassment of women (and men) particularly in divorce cases. This will be beneficial in matrimonial and maintenance cases and will also provide evidentiary value in the matters of custody of children, right of children born from the wedlock of the two persons whose marriage is registered and the age of the parties to the marriage.

Well, as with all government processes, it is a long affair of collecting necessary certificates, filling forms and attaching requisite documents. Here is a complete How and What To Do List.

To register a marriage, one has to go to the court. The concerned authority for the registration is every Sub-Registrar (Hindu Marriages) within the limits of his jurisdiction and every Registrar (Hindu Marriages) of the district.
