Dear Client,
As per Hindu law the legal age for marriage in case of male is 21 years and of female is 18 years and same are proved by the certificate and documents, unless you make corrections in those certificates by legal procedure specified for such correction. However there is an alternative to it.
Any marriage solemised less than the age specified is void. If you need any legal advice for the same feel free to contact.
