I'm confused about the age of consent for sexual relations. Is it 18 or 16?
IPC (1860) has various sections like 375 which criminalises sex with girl under 18years of age even with her consent. But some High Court and Supreme Court delivered judgements which conflict with IPC (section 375 etc).
So in light of latest laws (like POCSO Act etc), what exactly is the age of consent in India? (Is it gender neutral?)
