"Delhi Govt notifies The Delhi Anand Marriages Rules, 2018. Long pending demand of the Sikh community fulfilled. Our govt is committed to work for protection of rights of all communities (sic)," Revenue Minister Kailash Gahlot tweeted.
AAP MLA Jarnail Singh from Tilar Nagar said that besides new marriages, Sikhs whose marriages have been registered under Hindu Marriage Act can also get the same registered under the Anand Marriage Act.
"I want to thank the Delhi government for notifying the Anand Marriage Act, which had been cleared by the Centre in 2012, but Delhi was yet to notify it.
"I have raised the issue in 2015 when the Aam Aadmi Party government was formed. It was a long-pending demand of the Sikh community," Singh said.
Sikh groups had maintained that members of the community used to face problems abroad as their certificates were issued under the Hindu Marriage Act.
The Anand Marriage Act was passed by the Centre, but it was yet to be implemented in Delhi.
