Rajasthan Marriage Registration Bill 2021: The Ashok Gehlot government of Rajasthan has announced to withdraw the controversial Marriage Amendment Bill 2021 after protests. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday said that the Rajasthan government has decided to withdraw the recently passed Marriage Registration Bill for re-examination. In fact, opposition parties allege that its provisions will encourage child marriage.
Through this bill, all the social organizations and opposition parties had accused of recognizing and promoting child marriage in Rajasthan. There was a huge uproar when the bill was passed in the state assembly last month. The Chief Minister said that this bill was brought in view of the Supreme Court’s decision that it is necessary to register every marriage.

Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Monday that he would urge the governor to send back the Rajasthan Compulsory Marriage Registration (Amendment) Bill 2021, recently passed in the assembly. He said that legal experts would be consulted on this bill and a decision would be taken to take it forward as per the suggestion and requirement.
Addressing the program ‘Hausalon Ki Udaan’ as part of the campaign with ‘Nene Haath Kalam’ on the occasion of International Girl Child Day, Gehlot said that there was a controversy in the whole country regarding this law that it would encourage child marriage. It is not a question of prestige for us. We will request the Governor to send it back and reconsider it.
Gehlot claimed that the state government is determined that child marriage cannot take place in Rajasthan at any cost. He said that there will be no compromise on this and I assure you. He said that we will study it (Marriage Registration Act) again, after that we will decide whether to pursue it or not… we don’t have any problem. The CM said that the decision to make marriage registration mandatory was of the Supreme Court, on that basis the law was made.
