A social concern related to women is making headlines across the country regarding the proposed bill for raising the legal age of marriage for women from the present 18 years to 21 years, incidentally the same age as for men. The Union Cabinet has decided to clear the Bill which seeks to raise marriage age of women from 18 to 21.  Following the Cabinet’s approval, it is expected that during the ongoing winter session of Parliament, the government will bring in an Amendment to the Prohibition of Child Marriage Act, 2006, and consequently bring amendments to the Special Marriage Act and personal laws such as the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, the 1872 Indian Christian Marriage Act, the 1936 Parsi Marriage and Divorce Act etc.
