You can apply for marriage registration under Hindu marriage act and under special marriage act . The procedure for both the marriages are different. But if you file a marriage application under Hindu marriage act you can obtain marriage certificate earlier. The marriage officer under Hindu marriage act is the local executive officer of your concerned municipality.
