I have received a Marriage Certificate from New Delhi under the Hindu Marriage Act of 1955. The Marriage Certificate is incorrect because it does not have the maiden name of my wife, it has the married name of my wife listed.

Regardless of the reason why this is present, I wish to correct the certificate so it has her maiden name.

What is the process and procedure for making a correction like this on the Marriage Certificate? Will the correction mean a fresh marriage certificate?
My desire is to keep the same exact Number which is listed near the top of the certificate.
At the top it says "No. and Date of Application," and I would like for both to stay the same if possible. Will this be possible for a correction like this?

I don't know if it's possible, but I once looked into getting a foreign marriage certificate validated in India. It was possible at our local court and the local lawyers near the court knew how to do it and had sample affidavits. My impression was that the affidavits could also be for correcting mistakes in the original marriage certificate or validating old religious or customary marriages.

Wrong name in Marriage Certi

Hi,

Got married on 2010,the marriage certificate was issued from Bharuch, Gujarat.
My name and My wife's name was wrong in the marriage certi , like instead of "Sinh" it has "bhai", instead of "Bahen" it has "Ben" also by mistake surname of my wife is also wrong instead of "Patel" it has "Parmar".

When I tried to ask and update these mistakes I got the reply from Government officers that its not possible, you can't change those mistake.

Can you please suggest how can I do that? Its really urgent for me to correct those mistakes.

You signed it, right?

I think the govt. officer is right. If people could change things like that, they could do all sorts of mischief.

The mistake is due to government only.
They printed wrong name on Election card and due to that those name appeared in Mrg Certi.

I am sorry you have got in a bureaucratic trap but the time to correct these things was before the event.

Somebody wiser and more experienced me might know, but I wonder if the courts might help?

All I can say is that if your name is "officially" something else, it might be easier to change your name.
