Marriage Certificate OCR


This article walks you through the building process of an OCR API that extracts data from Marriage Certificates using our deep learning engine. It will work for any bank company or bank statement template. 




  1. You’ll need a free account. Sign up and confirm your email to login.
  2. You’ll need at least 20 Marriage Certificate images or pdfs to train your OCR.



Define your Marriage Certificate use case


First, we’re going to define what fields we want to extract from your Marriage Certificate. 



Marriage Certificate OCR API



  • Issuer Name: The name of the marriage certificate issuer


  • Issued date: The date of issue of the marriage certificate 


  • Husband's Name: The husband's name


  • Wife's name: The wife's name


  • Clerk information: The clerk address information



That’s it for our use case. Feel free to add any other relevant data to fit your requirements.



Deploy your API


Once you have defined the list of fields you want to extract, head over to the platform and press the ‘Create a new API’ button.


You land now on the setup page. Here is the image you can use for setting up the API, and my setup looks like this:
