At all times, we are expected to abide by the law, but what if the law is itself irrelevant. Though the laws are introduced to stop people from doing strange things, sometimes these laws itself are strange law. We have find out some of the craziest law of our country that will make you think that is it real?
1.Why can’t you drink at 18 when you can vote at 18?
The legal age of drinking alcohol in India law differs significantly from every state to state. If you are in Delhi, your age should be minimum of 25 to drink alcohol on the other hand you can start drinking in Uttar Pradesh or Rajasthan at the age of 21. Doesn’t make sense, right?
2.You need a ‘permit’ to fly a kite.
According to the Aircraft Act 1934 states that flying a kite without police permission is a breach of the law. You were think now that is it real? Was I committing an offense all this while when I was flying a kite? Yes. According to this Act, aircraft means any machine which can derive support in the atmosphere from the reaction of the air. This includes balloons, airships, kites, gliders, and flying machines. So, yes, if you are flying a kite without the permission of police, well you are committing an offense, and you can be fined Rs 10 lakh and sentenced to upto two years in prison if you violate this, is not this you find a craziest law?
3.Prostitution is legal, but you can’t be a pimp.
Prostitutes can practice their trade privately but cannot legally solicit customers in public. Organized prostitution like brothels, prostitution rings, pimping, etc., is illegal in India.
4. Adultery is illegal, but only the man gets the punishment.
As per the India laws only a man is punished in case of adultery. According to section 1947, it says that if a man has sexual intercourse with a woman who is married, and he does not have the consent of the husband of the woman for the sexual activity, then he is punishable under this section. The woman herself is not liable to be punished nor be fined. This is a gender-biased law and states that while men can be sentenced to jail but there is no punishment for women and they can go on making as many liaisons with other men as they please.
5. Internet censorship
According to the Information Technology (IT) Act, 2000 online pornography is illegal in India. However, you can access it in private. That’s called the law of convenience. Is not the craziest law you have heard?

7. Home delivery of alcoholic beverages
In the capital of India, Delhi, you can get a beer and wine home delivered from supermarkets like Vishal Mega Market, Big Bazar, but the home delivery of other alcoholic beverages is strictly prohibited. Did not you find this a strange law of India?
