The central government is taking measures to revise upward the legal marriage age for girls. The current legal marriage age for girls is 18 years, and in his Independence day speech, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that a decision on the right age of marriage for girls would be taken as soon.

Prime minister Narendra Modi said that a committee has been set-up to study the issue and the age revision will be made after they submit their report. Currently the legal age of marriage in India is 18 years for girls, and 21 for boys.

Following this, Congress member and actress Kushbhu has tweeted thanking PM Modi for this move.
