How to disable previous dates in datepicker jquery calendar?

How can I disable previous dates of calendar so that one can not choose previous date.

You can disable the previous dates in datepicker of jquery calendar following the below line of codes:

$('#date').datepicker({

            changeMonth: true,

            duration: 'fast',

            changeYear: true,

            numberOfMonths: 1,

            selectOtherMonths: true,

            showOtherMonths: true,

            minDate: 0, //Disable to choose previous dates

        });

Some time while working on any web application, we receive requirement of integrating calendar with the feature not to allow users choosing back dates then the above code will help you in achieving that validation in calendar.
