Riya, there is no separate procedure for divorce under a registered marriage. Any divorce in India except that of muslims are to be done through Courts only. You have to file in either a family Court or a District Court.

Here at the time of filing the photo proof and the invitation card of the marriage is required. The marriage certificate is not that much mandatory. It is only required when the marriage is disputed. I hope in your case that situation is not yet arose.

You can proceed with these two document along with address proof to confirm the jurisdiction of the court.
