Reported on August 7, 2014 from Bangalore , Karnataka  ι Report #42733

Shame on me - I thought I will have to shell out money to get Marriage Certificate. Had anticipated agent's involvement in the process.

The officer on the first visit turned down my application and asked me to me obtain certain documents which are valid documents as per the rule.

On my second visit, the whole process took 45 mins. paid 165/- ( Got 5/- change back ). The Sub-Registrar was very courteous and very soft spoken. The other official who sorted all out documents, put seals and took money ( official fees ) was very very honest. Wish I can learn to work like him.

Areas of Improvement
a) They had run out of forms and he gave me a sample form and get it photocopied
b) The typist who did the data entry ( contractor ? ) asked for typing fees ( 20/- ). I stared for few seconds and walked away
