Centre’s move on marriageable age welcome: KSCW chairperson Pramila Naidu

Prime News, National, Women, Marriage, Mysuru, December 17:- Karnataka State Commission for Women chairperson R Pramila Naidu is on a tour of the Mysuru district.

Talking to reporters here on Friday (December 17), she said, “the Centre’s decision to increase the marriageable age from 18 to 21 is a good move.”

She said, “The decision has been taken after a detailed study. Eighteen is not the right age for women to make decisions. When they turn 21, they will have learnt what life is. I welcome the Centre’s new Bill on marriageable age.”

Pramila Naidu said, “There are reports of child marriages in border areas. The Deputy Commissioners and the Police Department have been successful in stopping such marriages. I also visited the Mysuru Central Prison on Ashoka Road here and collected information on people arrested under POCSO Act.” (MR/KS)
