Supreme Court dismisses plea to raise minimum marriage age of women.

Uniform age of marriage याचिका सुप्रीम कोर्ट से खारिज हो गई लेकिन खुद याचिकाकर्ता बता रहें हैं कि देश में लड़का और लड़की के शादी की उम्र समान हो इसका ना सिर्फ समाजिक बल्कि वैज्ञानिक कारण भी है। साथ ही केंद्र और हाईकोर्ट इससे सहमत है बावजूद इसके मामले को लेकर याचिकाकर्ता सुप्रीम कोर्ट क्यों गए। आप भी सुनिये ये खास इंटरव्यू और बताइये क्या ये मुद्दा देश के लिये अहम नही है।

"We are here to do a constitutional duty and not to please you or anyone", Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud told PIL petitioner Advocate Ashwini Upadhyay, while dismissing a petition filed by him seeking uniform age of marriage for men and women.

Men in India are permitted to get married at the age of 21 years while the marriageable age for women is 18 years. However, Upadhyay had sought equality in the legal age of marriage for men and women.

The petitioner Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay sought that women’s age of marriage should be increased to 21 to be at par with men.
