India has decided to increase the minimum marriage age for women from 18 to 21 years. The decision was announced by the Union Cabinet on Wednesday. Through this, new laws are going to be enacted in India to make the minimum age of marriage for men and women equal. Under the existing law, the minimum age of marriage for women is 18 years and for boys it is 21 years. The new law recommends 21 years for both. However, critics say that child marriage cannot be prevented by this law. Rather, it will have a negative impact on marginalized people. News from The Indian Express.
The Indian Express reports that in addition to setting the same age for marriage for men and women, a number of other factors have played a role. The Narendra Modi government’s argument is that if women get married at an early age, they are more likely to get pregnant at an early age. There is a risk of not ensuring adequate nutrition for mother and baby. It can also affect their physical and mental health. There is also a risk of increasing infant mortality rate and maternal mortality rate. In addition, getting married at an early age reduces women’s chances of studying and working.
The Jaya Jaitley Committee recently recommended raising the minimum age of marriage for girls to 21. This recommendation is based on the views of the youth of 16 universities of the country. More than 15 NGOs have worked to reach out to the youth living in remote areas and marginalized communities. The committee members claimed that the survey was conducted in urban and rural areas alike. The young people who took part in the survey were of different religions.
