HI,

I can't find this information anywhere. Marriage was registered long ago in Delhi. I have one copy of marriage certificate as of now and wish to get a few more copies for my records.

Where do I go in Delhi to simply get the extra copies of the certificate?

You are required to visit a photocopy shop of neighborhod and get as many copies as you wish.

You are not required to get them reissued as you are not required to submit original anywhere.

Hi, Thanks for replying. OK, in case I require to submit original somewhere.. where do I get it? (I want to keep one original with me, so I don't want to give the one I have)

No, you will not be asked to submit original marriage certificate anywhere. So, that's not an issue.

However, if you have lost it, you will have to submit FIR at local police station and will have to apply at the Registrar of Marriage office (where you had got your marriage registered) for issuing of a Duplicate of the same.

Are you sure?
The "original" is not the paper they give you as many copies of as you pay for at the time: the original is actual the entry in the register!

Assuming it can be traced, I would expect further copies to be available whether you still have one or not. Having an existing one should help trace the entry though.

Some states have digitised some records. Could not find my own, though, although have not tried for some years. Would suggest checking out the local state govt registry services portal. Might not be useful... But worth a try!

"Marriage Certificate" is the document in which the record of a legal marriage, with details of names, date, etc. is mentioned. The document is signed by the officer who has conducted the marriage. The same document is handed over to the party. Original is provided and duplicate copies may be issued, if required.

Register contains/maintains this record.

Not sure if the below information is relevant.

When I got the birth certificate for junior I was asked how many originals do I need. I asked for 5 and was given 5 original birth certificates duly stamped for a fee.

Certificate = certified copy.

Legalese nitpicking, but hey, that used to be a hobby of mine

OK. So go to Registrar of Marriages and ask for duplicates.

Thanks a lot

No need, just get a copy and self attest the same, it is as good as original. At the most you may asked to show the original or hand it over for a few days.

It is. Now a day you can ask for as many copies of most documents by paying a charge, the official person stamps and signs, and that becomes the original.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day
