To remove the demerits from society, government has started an award for inter caste marriage.

Maharashtra government has decided to gift Rs 50,000 to a couple opting for inter-caste marriage. The

state cabinet on Tuesday took the decision with the view to abolish caste system in the state by

encouraging inter-caste marriages, an official from CMO said. Earlier, the amount was Rs 15,000, he

added. The government would give a cheque of Rs 20,000 and invest Rs 25,000 in postal savings scheme,

Indira Vikas Patra, in the name of the couple. The remaining amount would be given in form of

marriage expenditure or household things, the official said. The government has been implementing the

scheme from 1958 and 50 per cent of the fund is given by the Centre. Like this every state has

different ammount for intercast marrage.
