One of my friend is an Hindu and she got married in the year 1996 at Hydarabad. Now she is living in Chennai and she want marriage certificate for apply visa.
She living in Sholinganallur, OMR . She visited the Sub registrar office neelankarai for Hindu marriage registration.

But the sub registrar is refused to do Hindu marriage registration and he direct to register the marriage in Hydrabad where the marriage took place.
He said that at the time of marriage both Husband and wife not lived in Chennai so that they have have to do registration in place of marriage.

So please clarify that both are living in Chennai more than 15 years and all their proofs in Chennai only. Also they cannot travel to Hydrabad only for the purpose of marriage registration.

Can you give any advise in this regard?

Actually jurisdiction for Hindu Marriage Registration is

1. Place of residence of Groom
2. Place of residence of bride
3. Place of Marriage

The Hindu marriage couples can do the Hindu marriage registration in any one of above said jurisdiction.

since your friend living in Chennai and they have all the proofs in Chennai. There is no necessity to live in Chennai at the time of Marriage. If they have address proof in Chennai they can do Hindu marriage registration in Chennai. No need to visit Hydrabad for the purpose of Hindu marriage registration.
If the sub registrar is refuse to do registration , you can approach the competent court to get suitable order.

The sub registrar asking any one of address proof issued prior to marriage date.
The marriage year is 1996. we don't know how it is possible practically. Because they have all recent proofs .

Let me know is it true . For hindu marriage registration it is mandatory to produce old address proof.

Normally all sub registrars will consider the residential jurisdiction only at the time of marriage. But Hindu marriage act does not required particularly old address proof.
Tamilnadu Government official website also also does required only address proof . So if both have address proof in Chennai address they can complete the registration in Chennai itself. No need to go to Hydradad merely for registration.

i read Hindu marriage Act 1955 it is clearly indicate that place of residence of bride and groom and place of marriage will be considered as jurisdiction for Hindu marriage registration. But we don't know why the marriage registrars are not ready to do marriage registration in Chennai. If they refuse what is the remedy available for complete the registration without approaching court.
