    Yes, Absolutely. You can get your marriage certificate from the municipal corporation of the city where your marriage was performed. You need to contact the respective department for marriage certificate. Normally you will require copies of following documents.
    1. Marriage invitation card
    2. Identity proof and address proof of both husband and wife
    3. Two persons as witnesses
    4. Marriage certificate form with stamps

    These are the necessary documents but you can inquire for more information at the respective department.

    Marriage certificate is issued by the state Govt and generally the formalities and application form submission is done in the office of sub divisional magistrate or any other authorised officer in your area. There is an option of submitting the application online also.

    On submission of application an appointment date will be given on which you have to visit their office along with your spouse. There will be a detailed document verification like date of birth, address proof, Voter card or Aadhar card or driving license etc. You will have to deposit a nominal fee of Rs 100 also.

    In addition to above two passport sized photographs, one marriage photograph, marriage invitation card and separate Marriage Affidavits in prescribed format from you and your spouse will be required.

    They will ask you to present a witness of the marriage also. The witness will be required to produce his identity and address proof also.

    I got married on 20th November, 1999 as per following the rituals of Hindu marriage. I got the marriage certificate on 20th February, 2011. I applied with the marriage invitation card, witnesses, date of birth of myself and that of my wife and address proof, and got it without any hassle (although I had expected problems because I applied after a long time).

    I think you can also get the certificate from the municipal corporation of the city where your marriage was solemnized in 1983.

    Beware! I question everything and everybody.
