Pundit is not responsible for any lapse on the part of parties to marriage supressing their age as Pundit is not presumed to verify the actual dates of birth of Var and Vadhu. Pundit cannot be punished on this account.

10. Punishment for solemnising a child marriage.- Whoever performs, conducts, directs or abets any child marriage shall be punishable with rigorous imprisonment which may extend to two years and shall be liable to fine which may extend to one lakh rupees unless he proves that he had reasons to believe that the marriage was not a child marriage.

 

 

Above is the provision of Child Marriage Restraint Act, 2006

 

by way of this provision, even a Pandit is covered.........however, this provision is only in concern with Child Marriage.

 

the given facts above are not of child marriage.....otherwise Hindu Marriage Act, does not fix any such liability on a Pandit.

mr kiran kumar is absolutely right. pandit is responsible till he proves that he was bluffed by the parties.

all persons present or perticipated in the marriage are punishable under this act.

The Hindu marriage act also covered under the child marriage restrient act. therefore all the hindu marriages are covered under this act, including the above case.

KINDLY NOTE THAT NOW REGISTRATION OF MARRIAGES IS LEGALY MANDATORY.KINDLY NOTE AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION OF MARRIAGE AS PER HINDU MARRIAGE ACT,WHEN BOTH BRIDE AND GROOM ARE HINDUS, BOTH  BRIDE AND GROOM SHOULD SIGN MARRIAGE REGISTRATION FORM AND  HAVE TO ENCLOSE DATE OF BIRTH CERTIFICATE, ADDRESS PROOF AND ALSO  SIGNATURE OF THE PRIST AND TWO WITNESSES AND AFFIDAVITS OF BOTH THE BRIDE AND GROOM ARE ESSENTIAL.. HENCE IN CASE ANY FALSE INFORMATION IS GIVEN BY BRIDE AND GROOM  ON AFFIDAVIT THEN THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SAME .AND OTHERS MAY DEFEND THAT THEY HAVE SIGNED IN GOOD FAITH AND BELIEVING THE CERTIFICATES OF DATE OF BIRTH PRODUCED AND AFFIDAVITS PRODUCED BY BRIDE AND GROOM.

WITH BEST REGARDS TO ALL CONCERNED.

THANKS.
