A question for people who got married in India (or anybody else who knows the answer).

We got married last November, in Bangalore, and since then have been busy with trying to get a PIO card. Fingers crossed, but the latest update is that it will be issued tomorrow.

In a few months I need to renew my passport which luckily I can do in Bangalore itself. But for this, they need a marriage certificate not older than 6 months. When I went to the marriage registration office they told me that they don't reissue; there are only 3 original documents (signed by us and our witnesses): 1 for their records, 1 for us and 1 for if we somehow loose our copy.

Has anybody had this same problem? The Dutch consulate needs a not older than 6 months document, the marriage registration office say they cannot give this. But then again, the marriage registration office has been giving wrong information before.

Hope to hear from you!

Congrats on the imminent PIO card -- I had to wait a year after marriage, though I did mine in the US...

Could it be that they need a copy of the marriage certificate notarized in the past six months? That makes a lot more sense to me.

The "original document" is the entry in the register. The marriage "certificate" is a certified copy of that entry. They should issue copies, at the standard fee of a rupee or two (ok, maybe three) at any time.

Ah. That explains why one of the certificate copies we obtained at the DC's office when we were married was still usable for my PIO card a year later.

To most people, most bureaucrats, even, such a certificate would be usable for life. I can't imagine why the Dutch want a marriage certificate to issue a passport, and if they do, why it should have be only six months old! They really are outdoing India on awkwardness there

Thanks for your answers! Our marriage certificate (with apostille stamp) is in Delhi at the moment for the PIO. Hv to wait till it's sent back to us and then will go to the registration office and post the update here. Now Im just a bit confused, coz even the certificate is not a copy, right? It has our original photo's and signatures. So how do they give a certified copy?

They need the marriage certificate for my passport because my marital status will be changed from single to married.

And in NL you normally don't have a birth / marriage / whatever certificate. Anytime you need a proof, you have to go to the town hall and get an extract and for official purposes, this extract can never be older than 6 months. It has some advantages, like you can never loose it and you can get as many extracts as you want. And everything is updated in 1 central point. The downside is that it is rather costly and if you live in a country where things are less organized, it is difficult to comply.

Answer to my question in case ppl have this same problem:

You can get a certified copy. It's literally a xerox of the original with a stamp and signature of the officer in charge on the back. That's all. And that's ok for the Dutch consulate.

Hi There,

I am going to apply for WP for Netherland. I believe you already went through this phase. So if you can answer few of my questions then that will be helpful. I am currently located at Delhi.

Marriage Certificate Reissue
I already have my marriage certificate issued from Lucknow. So regarding reissue marriage certificate I need to get the photocopy of it and get it again stamped from the person who signed it when it got issued?

Birth Certificate Reissue
My birth place was in Burdwan, West Bengal. In delhi my parents submitted my birth certificate to the school around 28 years back. Now to reissue the birth certificate what should be the procedure? I need to goto Kolkata and contact municipal department and get it reissued or there is some other way which you know.

If you have any answer in this regard then that will be of lot help.
