Dear Client,

There is no Supreme Court ruling yet on this issue but there are a number of High Court rulings. There is divergence of opinion by HCs on the issue. Depends in which state both the boy and girl live. GOI, however, has submitted before the SC that such marriages should be declared null and void.
