Revenue Department Office of the Sub Divisional Magistrate/ Office of the Tehsildar


Domicile Certificate can be made only in one State/UT. Obtaining Domicile Certificate from more than one State/UT is an offence.

Application form 

The application form can be downloaded from the following link

Note : All tahsildars dont make a domicile certificate, although they are empowered to. There are specific areas of setu department in mumbai, where you can get a form and apply. A proof of staying in maharashtra for 10 years continuously is required. You can show a bank account passbook, a bonafide certificate of college. Keeping track of phone and telephone bills of 10 yrs back is tedious enough.
