Obligatory is the adjective form of the noun "obligation." The word means "compulsory or required."
An obligation if imposed becomes mandatory or obligatory.

Here are some of the sentences with the word "obligatory."

1. Attendance is obligatory for all students in the tenth grade.

2. Voting is obligatory for people above the age of eighteen.

An action which is obligatory means that it is bound by a contract morally or legally. Sometimes it is advisable for a state or an organisation to make certain things or clauses obligatory in nature because it inculcates civic sense and a sense of discipline among people.
