Kanyadan not essential ceremony for valid Hindu marriage: Allahabad High Court

The High Court, however, upheld the trial court order after opining that there was no need to go into whether kanyadan was performed or not to determine whether a valid Hindu marriage had taken place.

“Whether the ceremony of Kanyadan was performed or not, would not be essential for the just decision of the case and, therefore, a witnesses cannot be summoned under Section 311 Cr.P.C. for proving this fact,” the Court held.
