I am non-resident Indian (NRI) so although I hold Indian nationality I don't live there. So getting a "Certificate of Marriageability" or an affidavit to the same purpose from the local sarpanch (akin to a mayor) in the area I am supposed to be registered in is a huge problem. Official registration practices for NRIs in India are quite mysterious.
Another less bothersome problem is that after this month (my studies come to an end), I will be jumping between countries on visas (looking for jobs) and therefore I don't really have an official address to provide to the state which they require ... so I'm hampered by this as well.
I really don't know what to do as a result and no real help is provided from the German Standesamts (they don't really know how to deal with such complex situations).
