BHIMFEDI: The trend of marriage between Dalit and non-Dalit youths has
taken a form of competition here.
The number of recorded inter-caste marriage in various VDCs and
Hetauda municipality of Makwanpur district has been steadily rising.
In the past fiscal year 2066/67, a total of 64 couples including Dalit
boy and non-Dalit girl and 20 couples including non-Dalit boy and
Dalit girl tied the knot.
The newly-wed couples received their certificate of marriage
registration from the Chief District Officer (CDO) Dinesh Bhattarai.
It may be noted that the Government provides a grant of Rs. 100,000 in
cash for inter-caste marriage between Dalit and non-Dalit.
