When society is changing with the new spirit of the young generation, there should be a change in our law and its implementations. It’s a shame that in India law is not equally applied in villages, towns and cities.

The first issue to be discussed in public is enabling the law, equally, in all places. The second issue is, there should be alteration in law from time to time and generation to generation and elections to elections. The law that is formulated in the 1990s is not applicable now. It has to be reformulated according to the present-day trends with a value-based outlook.

In India, especially in Indian villages, more than 50 percent girls are married before the age of 18. Problems faced by a girl who is married at the age of 16 are undetermined. In a case study by a non-profit organisation in Tamil Nadu, many facts were revealed. It seems that the child marriages suppress the skill-set and the confidence levels of the girl. The government has to make certain policies that can give freedom for women.

India can be an independent nation only when women in India are given freedom to express and implement their thoughts. A nation can be a safer place, only when women are respected. It's the responsibility of every citizen to respect women by protecting her rights.

There are many solutions to safeguard the women rights. The minimum age limit for marriage should be increased to 21years. That means that the child is at least allowed to complete her degree courses, without any disturbances and responsibilities. Because in India, getting married is becoming a responsible person towards their families.

It would be a better even if the government implements the 18-year limit for girls with strict police inspections and sever punishments for offending the law. Child marriage is a violation of human rights in India. Stopping child marriages is the only major step that the government has to be taken for the development of our nation. The summary of the research on child marriages is: Abolishing child marriages is the initial step for making India a developed nation. Whatever may be the debates on child marriages, the situation of a girl married at an age below 18 is a helpless condition.
