'There Is Legitimate State Interest In Limiting Recognition Of Marriage To Persons Of Opposite Sex Only', Centre  Opposes Plea To Recognise Same-Sex marriage:

Restricting an appeal looking for acknowledgment to same-sex relationships under different individual laws under the watchful eye of the Delhi High Court, the Centre today educated the court through an affirmation that, "there is a "genuine state interest" in restricting acknowledgment of union with people of other gender just", and that the establishment of marriage isn't only an idea consigned to the area of security of a person.

"The acknowledgment of the foundation of marriage between two people of a similar sexual orientation is neither perceived nor acknowledged in any uncodified individual laws or any systematised legal laws", the oath expressed. The middle has said that in spite of the mainstream see that homosexuality was authorised by the Supreme Court on account of Navtej Singh Johar v. Association of India, the court had "just made a restricted statement to decriminalise a specific human conduct, which was a punitive offence under S.377 IPC. The said revelation was neither expected to, nor did indeed, legitimise the lead being referred to".

Perceptions in 'Puttaswamy Judgment'(Privacy Case) and 'Navtej Johar' case(which struck down Sec 377 IPC) don't give a key option to look for acknowledgment of same sex-relationships, the middle contended.
It has likewise been contended by the middle that legitimising same-sex relationships was not the domain of the court, and a choice on the equivalent must be taken by the lawmaking body. Towards this, the middle presents that, "The inquiry with regards to whether such a relationship be allowed to be formalised via a legitimate acknowledgment of marriage is basically an inquiry to be chosen by the council and can never be a topic of legal adjudication.The Hon'ble Constitutional court can break down the current rights yet can't make another privilege by the cycle of legal mediation. The supplication made by the solicitor under the watchful eye of this Hon'ble Court, is, subsequently, completely impractical, unsound and lost."
