the girl is 16 yrs old thats not marriageable age she has to be 18yrs old.

you first file in district court to allow the marriage if they say yes its fine than.

regarding the threats from relatives you should file a police complaint for non interference

"Dear,
Marriage (also called matrimony or wedlock) is a socially or ritually recognized union or legal contract between spouses that establishes rights and obligations between them. The definition of marriage varies according to different cultures, but it is principally an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged. In some cultures, marriage is recommended or considered to be compulsory before pursuing any sexual activity.
Under Indian Law the age of marriage for a boy is 21 years and for a girl is 18years. As the girl is minor you cannot marry her. But being SC or ST is not any ground for getting marry. The law imposes no bar on the basis of caste on marriage but it is important under the law that both boy and girl must be of age of majority.
Section 5(3) of Hindu Marriage Act,1955 says
A  marriage may be solemnized between any two hindus, if the following conditions are fulfilled, namely:-
(3) the bridegroom has completed the age of 2[ twenty- one years] and the bride the age of 2[ eighteen years] at the time of the marriage; (iv.) the parties are not within the degrees of prohibited relationship unless the custom or usage governing each of them permits of a marriage between the two;
Therefore, you cannot marry her until and unless the girl attains the age of 18years. You have to wait for two more years to get married and donít worry nobody can force her to marry against her will. If anybody does then you may lodge a complaint against them.

Regards
Isha Bhardwaj
