Parents That Delay Children’s Marriage Will Be Fined by the Sindh Govt

Sindh’s Provincial Assembly has introduced a new draft law that will make marriage compulsory for 18-year-olds as soon as possible.

The Act specifies that in the event of a delayed marriage, parents must notify the Deputy Commissioner in writing and provide a detailed explanation. If the explanation supports a fine, the bill directs the parents to deposit a set amount (which will be revealed once the Act is passed) into the Deputy Commissioner’s Office official bank account.

Reportedly, the law has received support from a number of members of the Sindh Assembly, and it is expected to be added to the federal pipeline in the coming weeks for its initial implementation phase.
