Karnataka’s Congress Govt Starts Online Registration of Marriages, BJP MP Showers Praises

Bengaluru: The Congress government in Karnataka started the facility for online registration of marriages in the state. This facility was inaugurated by the state Revenue Minister Krishna Byre Gowda on Thursday (February 15).

The BJP MP Tejasvi Surya, who is also the national president of BJP Yuva Morcha, termed it a “welcome move”. “Welcome move by Krishna Byre Gowda for making the marriage registration process digital and citizen-friendly, enabling newly-weds (to) receive certificate at (the) comfort of their home,” said Tejasvi Surya in a message on X.

This online marriage registration facility was launched on a pilot basis at the Malleswaram sub-registrar office in Bengaluru. In a post on X, the minister Krishna Byre Gowda said, “Now one doesn’t have to visit the sub-registrar’s office for registering their marriage under (the) Hindu Marriage Act…One more step towards transparency and service delivery.”

However, the offline registration of marriages will continue for couples who are unwilling to give Aadhaar authentication online.

As per reports, two online registrations of marriages were made on Thursday.

Earlier this month, the Karnataka government approved the amendment of the Hindu Marriage Registration Act to simplify the process and make way for online registrations.
