Act No : 7



E-mail Print
7 of 1909
22nd October, 1909

"The object of the Bill is to set at rest doubts which may be raised of the validity of the marriage rite of the Sikhs called "Anand". This form of marriage has long been practised among the Sikhs but there are good reasons to believe that in the absence of validating enactment, doubts may be thrown upon it and Sikhs may have to face great difficulties in future and incur heavy expenses on suits instituted in the Civil Courts. It is also apprehended that in the absence of such law some Judicial Officers may be uncertain as to the validity of this orthodox Sikh custom. It is desirable therefore, that all doubts should be set at rest for the future by passing this enactment which merely validates .and accepting the rite by following any new principles". - Gazette of India. 1908, Part V, p. 357.

An Act to remove doubts as to the validity of the marriage ceremony common among the Sikhs called Anand. WHEREAS it is expedient to remove any doubts as to the validity of the marriage ceremony common among the Sikhs called Anand; It is hereby enacted as follows:-


(1) This Act may be called The Anand Marriage Act, 1909; and

(2) It extends to 2[the whole of India except the State of Jammu and Kashmir]
