New Delhi, Oct 25: The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that all marriages, irrespective of their religion, be compulsorily registered.

A Bench headed by Justice Arijit Pasayat also directed all states and union territories to bring in suitable legislation for this within three months.

The apex court also asked the states and union territories to file a compliance report and an affidavit after the three months deadline.

The order was passed after the apex court observed that several states had made registration of marriage compulsory for Hindus only.
