‘Tatkal’ Marriage Certificate

In April 2014, the Revenue Department of Delhi government introduced a ‘tatkal’ service ensuring a single-day authorization of the marriage under which the registration process will be undertaken on priority. The service, which became operational on April 22, 2014 enables citizens to register their nuptials and get a certificate issued within 24 hours on payment of Rs. 10,000 as a fee.

Benefits of Marriage Certificate

  • If you are applying for a passport or opening a bank account after the wedding, then Marriage Certificate is required.
  • Extremely helpful in obtaining visas for both husband and wife.
