I need to seek information about any individual if he/she has registered marriage. So, please help me in knowing if RTI can be used to seek this information?

 

If yes, then please let me know the department against which to submit RTI?

You have to first know as to where the marriage was likely registered. If you know the office of the Marriage Registrar where it was registered, then file a RTI application with the PIO of that office.

 

If you do not even know where the marriage was registered, it will be like finding a needle in a haystack.

Thanks Karira. I dont know if the marriage happened. That is what I want to find out?

 

Isn't there any central place / state from where I can get this information?

@J.P. Shah - Is Office of Marriage Registrar for each town/city a separate entity in itself?

Yes. Every District has it's own Registrar's office. You may file RTI Application and verify the record in those places, where you can hope to get the information depending on the residential/working addresses of the couple or enquiring with their friends or elders or in their offices, if employers are Public Authority.

Thanks G.L.N. Prasad for the information. Can you please let me know if PIO of the Registrar Office can furnish this information (if the partcular person is married to anyone/not) if only the name of the person is supplied as per RTI Act?

Vinay,

 

I am sure that our member G.L.N. Prasad will have no idea as to what the PIO of the Registrar office can furnish or not furnish - based only on a name.

The best way is to go ahead and file the RTI application.

 

But if you do not even know as to whether the marriage was registered at all, when it was registered and where it was registered....then in which Registrars office you plan to file the RTI application ?

Thanks Karira for the reply. I dont know anything except the name. Actually, this is the case of false 498a and 125 against which I am trying to defend.

And to do that, I am trying to find out if the other person has registered marriage in any of the cities/towns of the suspected districts.

 

As I do not have other information confirmed (like the address and name of the person with which he/she has married), so I only the name.

 

As you said that I should file RTI, I will do that, however just wanted to confirm that I will file RTI with the Registrar of concerned district to check how many persons with that name have registered marriage since a specific date in that district....correct?

After your main issue in RTI application is narrated, please add two more points:

 

Please provide certified copies of documents/ webpage link showing these details asked (Names and number of persons who have registered marriage since last 2 years), disclosed by this PA under voluntary disclosures u/s 4(1)(b)(xiii) along with a statement of categoty of documents that are held with this PA or under its control u/s 4(1)(b)(vi).

 

so that if the matter reaches II appeal stage, you may make things easier for others by demanding a direction for above now disclosures in public domain, if the answer of PA is in negative.

The marriage register is a public document, seek inspection , search for yourself free for the first one hour. You need not mention any names at all. Simply seek information of Marriage Register. I do not think that you can be successful, as no learned person will resort to marriage when a case was pending. A Hindu marriage need not be registered only with Registrar's office alone and those persons who want pass ports and other specific utility registers them. Marriages in Temple and Church are common and they are authorised to issue certificate. The attempts may not be fruitful unless and until you have positive clues, otherwise you may have to entrust the work to private detectives whose job is to find out such things.

@ SharmaJee - Do I need to tell them the entire issue to seek the information? what is PA? Public Authority? If you mean Public Authority, then do you meant to say Registrar?

No need to narrate any issue, raise the point as suggested in post #13.

PA is Public Authority. This will apply to any office where you are seeking information, including Registrar's office.

      Go-ahead was given for marriage halls, not multiplexes, malls
      Express News Service
      Ahmedabad, June 26: Real estate developers in the city sought permission to built marriage halls but instead, constructed multiplexes and malls. The Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA) revealed this in reply to a query under RTI filed by a citizen concerned about public safety in malls and multiplexes mushrooming across the city.  
      Worried that mushrooming malls and multiplexes in the city could spell a great risk to the lives of people visiting them like in the case of Uphaar Cinema tragedy, Memnagar resident Kaushal Vinod Shah took recourse to the RTI Act and asked AUDA to explain how safe was all this booming construction for the general public.
       
      AUDA told him that the three new buildings that have recently come in the city did not have its permission. Replying to Shah’s RTI query, senior town planner in AUDA, H P Shukla, said no such permission has been sought. If at all any permission has been sought, it was for a marriage hall. Before granting permission to such structures, AUDA and Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation carry out inspection of staircases and emergency exits and so on. However, in buildings constructed without their permission, no such inspections are carried out, and neither the authorities nor the fire and emergency officials know whether the norms have been followed or not.
       
      On May 5 this year, AUDA was asked whether builders of Cinemax Multiplex in Dev Arcade of Himalaya Mall on Drive-In Road, R-3 Mall near Manav Mandir and Acropolis on Thaltej Crossroads had taken its permission for constructing these multiplexes, or had submitted necessary maps and drawings to AUDA for approval.
       
      Shah, who filed the queries, said, “A number of multiplexes and malls have been sprung up on Drive In Road and S G Highway. Some have five screens that run house-full during peak hours. I hope this doesn’t turn into a tragedy like what happened at Uphaar Cinema in Delhi several years ago.”
       
      While General Development Control Regulations (GDCR) do not apply to multiplexes since they are not high-rise buildings, they are classified as special structures, which means they are supposed to follow strict fire-safety and public safety norms.
       
      CEO of AUDA, Jagdish Pandya said, “Since malls are low-rise buildings, they do not fall under the ambit of GDCR, which says that fire-safety regulations apply to high-rise buildings. However, we insist that they follow fire safety regulations as they are a special structure.
