Goa Health Minister Vishwajit Rane on Tuesday said the state government is considering making HIV tests mandatory before the registration of marriages. Rane added that the proposal is currently being vetted by the Law Department. "If it is cleared by the Department soon, then we will table the law in the monsoon session of the state Legislative Assembly," he stated.

In 2006, a similar proposal was mooted by then Health Minister Dayanand Narvekar, with the Goa cabinet approving the legislation making HIV testing mandatory before marriage. But the initiative did not reach fruition.
