what does it mean if a parent's name is missing from a marriage certificate

what does it mean if a parent's name is missing from a marriage certificate? On my Grand parent's certificate on my Father's side, my Grandmother's Father's name box is simply dashed out, no name given at all, what can this mean? What I find even more unusual is that my Grandfather was Indian and yet his Father is still listed. The marriage year was 960 if this helps.

Usually the Father is listed as deceased if they have passed away, so could this mean the Father was unknown? Or could there be another reason?

Any help would be great!

Many thanks,

Chris
