You Now Might Have To Link Marriage Registrations with Aadhaar Card



The law commission has suggested a creation of central portal for mandatory registration of marriages and it can be quickly implemented on the lines of passport seva. Government has decided that if 115 crore Aadhaar numbers can be digitally recorded and verified online, then why marriage registrations can’t be linked to Aadhaar. Linking marriage registrations with Aadhaar can help in dealing with marriage-related frauds/cases. The step by the commission for compulsory marriage registration will help to curb gender violence, child marriages, and marriage frauds.




A central civil registration portal will consist records of birth, marriage and death. It will help in convenient access to the documents. Linking unique identification number (UID), with marriage registration will help in providing legal security to woman. It will also help in universal tracing of records. Online marriage registration facility is already provided in some states but government needs to create a central portal for it.

Though it would be politically difficult to implement this because of religious connotations, but linking of Aadhaar with PAN was also a difficult task but it had proved beneficial and government has implemented it successfully, so government should try to implement this portal also.
