    Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced that his government will now take a collective decision on the legal age for marriage for girls. This is in relation to early motherhood.

    On Friday in an event to release a commemorative coin of Rs 75 denomination, PM Modi said that the Daughters of this country are writing to him about this matter. He also said that the Government would try to come to a decision as soon as possible. It just requires the committee to give a green signal.

    The event was in respect of the 75th Anniversary of India’s strong relations with Food and Agriculture Organisation.

    “Discussion is underway to decide the right age for marriage of our daughters. From across the country, daughters have written to me asking why the concerned committee has not given its decision yet. I assure you that as soon as the report comes the government will act on it.”

    The PM also shed light on how his government is also taking measure for women hygiene and health.

    Elaborating on it, he said,

    “We are taking appropriate actions for our daughters’ well-being. Through Jal Jeevan Mission work is going to provide water to every household. We will be providing sanitary pads for Rs 1 each.”

    The Official Matter

    The Government has put together a task force to evaluate the problem and the connection between early marriage and motherhood.

    This was the written reply by the Union Minister of Women and Child Development Smirti Irani to Rajya Shaba MP.
