SC Denies Legal Recognition to Gay Marriages, Leaves it to Parliament

New Delhi: Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud, while pronouncing the verdict on 21 pleas seeking legal validation for same-sex marriage, on Tuesday it is for Parliament to change the Special Marriage Act and the court can’t make law but only interpret it.

This court can’t make law. It can only interpret it and give effect to it, said the bench of the Supreme Court.

“Whether a change in the regime of the Special Marriage Act is for the Parliament to decide. This court must be careful to not enter into legislative domain”, said the apex court.
