Question

Why has government of india enacted the law to fix the minimum age of marriage as 18 in girls and 21 in boys ?


Solution

The government of the India enacted the law to fix the minimum age of marriage as 18 in girls and 21 in boys in order to prevent child marriage.
TO give enough education for both and to avoid producing immature parents


but some reports say that The minimum age of marriage for males is pegged at 21 as an indirect family planning method. 

India was facing an overpopulation problem  and the government needed some serious solutions. One of the first blame for the population problem went to the practice of early marriage. Marriage at one's teens opened the most fertile years of a man's and woman's reproductive life to reproduction and QED, a lot of babies.

So by raising the marriage age for men and women, the law made sure that men were past the peak of their libidinous teenage before they married, so that by the time they were in their 20s, the sexual frequency would be reduced enough for men to make less babies
