This year on Independence Day, Prime Minister Modi announced that the government planned to increase the minimum age of marriage from 18 to 21 years. The intention behind the proposal is to lower maternal mortality rate (MMR), reduce child marriage and increase the female workforce as well. For many, the move seems to be a confident one for the betterment of the country. But many believe that it won’t be able to solve the problems that it wants to resolve.

Q1. Is the govt's plan to increase minimum legal age of marriage for a girl from 18 to 21 a good idea?

Can't say
Thanks for taking part
