NEW DELHI: The government has decided to make it mandatory for registration of marriages to prevent harassment of women and provide evidentiary value in matrimonial and maintenance cases, law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told Parliament on Wednesday.

The minister, however, clarified that registration of marriages will not be linked to Aadhaar. “In order to provide evidentiary value in matrimonial and maintenance cases and prevent unnecessary harassment meted out to women, it has been decided to provide for compulsory registration of marriages,” the minister said.
