The Importance of of marriage registration
Apart from acting as a proof of the marriage, a marriage certificate is required while applying for a passport, for legally changing the wife’s last name, availing benefits under insurance, getting travel visas, opening a bank account under the new name, filing joint taxes, applying for loans, etc. after marriage.
The challenges in marriage registration
For most couples, getting a marriage registered is a fairly tiresome exercise.
There is a lack of clarity regarding the process and documents - and this often requires multiple visits to the government office by the husband and the wife. Eventually, many couples approach registration agents, who are neither reliable, nor cost effective.
