Now you need Aadhaar for getting married

Govt to check fraud by linking Aadhaar to matrimonial accounts as per sources.

Are you still not married and have you registered in any matrimonial sites, then be ready to link your Aadhaar.

If you don't have the Aadhaar you may need to live as a bachelor till you get an Aadhaar.

This step has been taken due to fake profile in these sites wherein people are getting cheated.

The Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) has called a meeting of various matrimonial site agencies and other stakeholders on July 8 to decide a “robust, scalable, multi-tenant architecture for preventing the exploitation of young women” registered on such sites.

One of the steps DeitY is likely to propose is making Aadhaar mandatory to keep out or track down frauds. Earlier, Women and Child Development minister Maneka Gandhi had also called for making Aadhaar mandatory for registering on such sites. In fact she was the first to raise this issue after her ministry was inundated with complaints from women who were cheated while looking for grooms online.
