A system of private registration of marriages with the kazis has always prevailed among the Indian Muslims.

There are Muslim Marriage and Divorce Registration Acts in force in six States providing for voluntary registration of marriages and divorces among the local Muslims.

A valid divorce under Shariat can only take place in the presence of a Kazi and for the same Kazi issues a certificate. Kazi's certificate will be sufficient to validate the divorce. Although in recent times, oral or triple triple always get challenged in courts. Stamp or Notarization alone shall not suffice.
