yes , after 2009 marriage certificate is compulsory for apply passport.
your friend date of marriage is 2009 and more than four years completed.so you have to register your friend marriage only under special marriage Act. For special marriage registration, first they to give one month notice.After 30 days notice, again they have to appear before marriage registrar and have to complete registration.
note: muslim and christian and inter religious marriage couples must register their marriage within 150 days from date of marriage and can get marriage certificate on same day.beyond 150 days they must wait minimum 30 days.

some body will try to get passport without marriage certificate. But you don't try to do that.
I am also done same mistake.Now you can get passport without marriage certificate to solve the passport problem but you cannot get visa without marriage certificate.
So get marriage certificate as earlier as possible to avoid unnecessary tension.
