If you want to marry according to civil form in India then you need to give notice for marriage to the Marriage Officer under the Special Marriage Act 1954 in the district where you have been living for at least one month on the date of giving notice for marriage. After the notice period which is 30 days the marriage will be solemnised and registered by the Marriage Officer cum Registrar in presence of only 3 witnesses known to the parties to marriage. Proof of age, address and identity of the parties to marriage and identity of the witnesses will be required and these need to be official documents only.
