A delegation of the Sikh community, led by AAP MLAs, today urged the Delhi government for early implementation of the provisions of the Anand Marriage Act in the national capital.
The Sikhs, whose marriages have been registered under this act, are not required to get their wedding registered under the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955.
AAP MLA Jarnail Singh said that the Sikh's long-pending demand of their own Anand Marriage Act will be implemented soon by the Arvind Kejriwal government in the city.
A delegation of the Sikh community, led by all AAP Sikh MLAs, met Delhi Law Minister Kailash Gahlot and urged him to implement the provisions of the act in the city.
"The Anand Marriage Act was passed by the Centre, but its implementation was pending in Delhi. Today, we had a meeting with the law minister and discussed some possible amendments that could be made into this," another AAP MLA Avtar Singh Kalka said.
"There will be one more round of amendments before the law could be implemented. It has already been implemented in other seats," he said.
Kalka said the Anand Marriage Act for the Sikh community will help the Sikhs while applying for a visa.
The Sikh groups had maintained that members of the community used to face problems abroad as their certificates were issued under the Hindu Marriage Act.
