My friend , he is hindu boy wants to marry a girl, who is scheduled tribe. I read in Hindu personal laws and Hindu Marriage act that This HMA does not apply on Scheduled tribes.
Now my queries are:
What are Legal marriage procedure for Scheduled tribes and Non-Scheduled tribes? apart from Special Marriage act 1954.
even if they solemnize marriage under special marriage act, then again for Maintainane , succession etc, what personal law will be applicable for them?
Is there a seperate personal law for Scheduled tribes? are they considered Hindu?
