To book tent-houses and marriage halls , you will have to show age certificates of the bride and bridegroom. This step is taken to put a check on child marriages ahead of Akha Teej which falls on April 21.Akha Teej is an auspicious occasion and is marked with mass child marriages. In the recent years.
Earlier, the government had announced that it would be seeking support from tent-dealers and caterers.
A meeting of Rajasthan State Tent Dealers Association took place at Shiv Niwas on Tuesday. The members unanimously agreed on boycotting child marriages and passed a motion to assist the state government in this regard.
“If anyone is found refusing to furnish age proof certificates or forcing to book tents for child marriages, the association will inform the police in this regard,” he added.
