Des Ki Baat – January 13, 2021: The mandatory display of notices for marriage of inter-faith couples will be optional from now, the Allahabad High Court said today in an order that is likely to bring relief to inter faith couples. The court said the publication of such notices “would invade in the fundamental rights of liberty and privacy”. They would also affect the couple’s freedom to choose marriage “without interference from state and non-state actors”, the court said. A section of the Special Marriages Act, 1954, requires an inter-faith couple to give written notice of the marriage to the District Marriage Officer. (Audio in Hindi)
