Uttarakhand govt offers cash incentives of Rs 50,000 to inter-caste, inter-faith couples

Amid several BJP-ruled states contemplating to enact a law to check the alleged religious conversion of women in the name of marriage, the Uttarakhand government is paying Rs 50,000 to inter-caste and inter-faith couples to encourage such alliances. The cash incentives are given to all legally registered inter-faith Indian couples, said officials of the state Social Welfare Department. In cases of inter-caste marital marriages, one condition for availing the cash incentive is that one of the spouses should be from the scheduled caste as defined by Article 341 of the Constitution, they said.
