Beware of AMOFOI Scam
AMOFOI is an organization in Odisha/Orissa (previous name) which claims to fight for anti-cast marriage, one child policy and educating the children in private English medium schools. They claim their certificate is legally valid and recognized by the government, which is totally untrue. They are running the operation in a rented house where the whole family lives in and making a living off this. The certificate is not legally recognized anywhere, not even hotels accept this certificate for the “newly married” couple to stay in. They are preying on victims who are desperate to get married quickly, a quick fix promising that it is recognized by India government. AMOFOI also uses hard sell and persuasion techniques by printing a book to show how many marriages they had solemnized, where in fact it is showing how many victims they had cheated, and this includes foreigners. AMOFOI claims that they do the marriages by donation, but after starting, they say it will cost RS 1500, and after completion they wrote out a receipt of RS 4000 to get the completed certificate. On threatening to go to the police, they immediately threatened the couples that they will notify the parents about the marriage. People who goes to AMOFOI are usually people who eloped as the parents and family object to the union. They will even suggest a hotel to stay in so that they can threaten the couple if they refuse to pay and notify the parents to collect the son/daughters from that hotel. Do not use the service from AMOFOI, get married legally under Special Marriage Act 1954 in the Marriage Register Office. No other method is legal, other than Hindu Marriage Act (only for Indian nationals, not for foreigners who are not Hindu by birth), which still has to be registered in the Marriage Register Office.

Any other organisations who says they can give marriage certificates are also not legally recognised by the government. Do not waste time or money with them.

To judge by your previous posts, e.g. UK citizen married to an Indian national - Visa/PIO questions, you seem to have been one of thier victims.
