After hearing a plea by a U.S based Indian couple who were seeking to register their marriage in India through Video Conferencing, the Delhi High Court recently allowed the registration of marriages in the virtual presence of parties.
The view taken by the High Court was that the citizens should not be restricted or prevented from exercising their rights given to them by the law, because of an inflexible interpretation of a law that presses upon "personal physical presence" of the parties.
Now, any married couple residing outside India can get their marriage registered in India, by marking their personal presence/appearance before the Registering Authority through Video Conferencing after submitting their application for the registration of marriage through their Power of Attorney Holder in physical form along-with the copies of all supporting documents duly notarized by a notary public.
The essential conditions are as follows-
The application for registration of marriage should be submitted through the Power of Attorney Holder in physical form along with the requisite documents. Two/three witnesses should appear physically before the Registering Authority with their original ID proofs on the date notified by the Registering Authority, and the personal presence of the parties will be marked before the Registering Authority through Video Conferencing. The Authority will then register the marriage and issue the Marriage Registration Certificate.
Generally required documents for registration are as follows-
Generally, the marriage certificate is issued by the Registering Authority within 2 weeks after getting the marriage registered.
