What is the procedure to get Christian marriage certificate in Inspector general of registration, Santhome High Road, Chennai
I narrate my personal experience while I try to get my friend Christian marriage certificate in IG office :
One of my friend living in UK and he need marriage certificate for visa process . He is an Christian and his marriage took place is Nagarkoil, Kanyakumari District .
We made application in Inspector general of registration, Santhome High Road, Chennai
When we apply they asked for reference number and date from Kanyakumari district registrar. After long struggle we found reference number date . Also we produced covering letter written by the Kanyakumari district registrar to Inspector general of registration santhome, chennai. In that letter my friend name and his wife name was mentioned clearly.

After submitting all the papers the staff in Christian marriage certificate section attached with IG office gave me one land line number with extension code and asked me to call after 10 days.

We were happy about the getting marriage certificate after 10 days and called that landline number after 10 days. But no one is attend my call and there is no response over the phone.

Finally we visited office of the Inspector general of registration in person and inquired about marriage certificate. But the staff told that the particular extract forwarded by the Kanyakumari District registrar office is not found and further he told that without Extract we cannot issue Christian marriage certificate.

There after he advised me to forward one duplicate extract onceagain from Kanyakumari district registrar office . Once again we went to Kanyakumari District registrar office and explained our situation . They told that we will forward extract only one time, once forwarded our work is finished . If lost in IG office we cannot take any responsibility. Also they advised to approach church and advised to ask their help.

We went to Nagarkoil church for duplicate extract. They told that the priest who was solemnized the marriage is transferred and they clearly told that there is no chances to issue duplicate extract again.
