A MEMORANDUM SUBMITTED TO HONORABLE GOVERNOR OF KARNATAKA

Karnataka State Task Force Against Child Marriages urges His Excellency Sri Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala, the Hon’ble Governor of Karnataka, to expedite passing of the Karnataka Government’s Amendment to the Prohibition of Child Marriage Act, 2006 for assent of Preseident of India.
The proposed amendment provides stringent punishment to child marriage abettors with imprisonment from one to two years and also empowers police to take suo motu cognizance of the crime and book cases. The Task Force points out that any further delay in passing this very progressive amendment will only mean that the children can continue to fall prey to CHILD MARRIAGES.
