Sir, Do one thing, first obtain certified copy of the judgment and decree of divorce case, then make a request letter with enclosing of judgment and decree, that request to the sub-registrar for cancel the marriage certificate as per the judgment and decree of the court. On your request the sub-registrar cancel it, otherwise make an application to same court after expiry of appeal period with stating that direct the sub-registrar to cancel the marriage certificate. This is the way you can approach the concern authority to cancel the marriage certificate.
