We have the following questions to be clarified:

Basic Information:

Bridegroom has a British passport; He has OCI status (Overseas Citizenship of India; he was in India till he completed 12th standard and then he went to London , UK and studied there and got his British passport; He is working in London, UK now.

Bride: Has Indian passport and is living in India (living in K.K. Nagar)

We want to register the marriage on April 15, 2013 at Chennai.

Questions:

1.Indian Special Marriage Act of 1954.

In case a marriage between an Indian and a foreign national is to take place in India, generally its required to file a notice of intended marriage with a Marriage Registrar of your choice in India. That notice is required to be published for the stipulated 30 days. At the end of the 30 days the Marriage Registrar is free to perform the marriage.

Do we have to give 30 days notice to Marriage Registrar?

2. In addition, evidence of eligibility to be married is usually required. Anyone who hasn’t been married should obtain a single status affidavit (in the US), a Certificate of No Impediment (in the UK), or Certificate of No Record (in Australia). If you’re divorced, you’ll need to produce the Decree Absolute, or if you’re widowed, a copy of the death certificate.

Do we need this No Objection certificate?



3. registrar office location

To which registrar office do we have to go? Bride lives in K.K. Nagar

Please enquire on these and respond to us.

Normally no country will entertain easily to register the other country people marriage. But in India there are separate law to perform the marriage of foreigners marriage legally.
But it will take 90 days to complete the registration process. Also they can perform their religious marriage in India and they register the same in one day process.

You have forgot to mention both religion. If both are Hindu You con register your marriage under Hindu marriage Act. If both belongs to different religion, you have to register your marriage under special marriage Act in Tamilnadu.

If the bride or groom is foreign national , the registrar will ask for single status certificate. But the UK government also will not issue the single status certificate to get married out side UK.

Also he having OCI card. So he is an overseas citizen of India and he is not required to produce single status certificate.
