Haryana hikes reward for inter-caste marriages

Any couple opting for inter-caste marriage in Haryana will now get Rs1 lakh as cash reward against Rs50,000, which was given earlier. The State Government on Thursday decided to increase the cash reward under the inter-caste marriage scheme. The decision was taken at a meeting of the State-level Vigilance and Monitoring Committee held here under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal.

The Chief Minister said that with the hike in the reward money, the number of inter-caste marriage would surely go up and help in removing caste discrimination. He said that such assistance should be provided through bank accounts under the Pradhanmantri Jan-Dhan Yojana. The department should work on how to make the process the shortest so that financial assistance can be provided to the beneficiaries without any delay.
