Todya, court marriage in India is the one of the choosiest option for perform the marriage. In India, a marriage officer has been appointed by the govt. for performing the marriage and issues the marriage certificate it’s called court marriage or registered marriage. Our India is divided into the state and every state has divided into district for the better governance and most of country follows this system. India has also some union territory in which central govt. have ruled.

 i) Procedure of court marriage in state-  

Procedure and rule of the performing the court marriage in state and union territory will be remain same.  But the marriage officer will be different in the state.

3.Same day marriage

This is the third way to perfome the marriage. Basically same day marriage is created by the need of the married couple, who have not enough time to perform their marriage by the above two ways. Concept of same day marriage is equal to the court marriage. Generally main purpose of the couple is getting the marriage certificate by these two ways of marriage.
