UNICEF : India rank sixth with highest rates of child marriage

    India is among the top 10 countries with the highest rates of child marriage, UNICEF said in a report titled "Ending Child Marriage - Progress and prospects."
India has the sixth highest prevalence of child marriage in the world with one in every three child brides living in India.
The 10 countries with the highest rates of child marriage are Niger, Bangladesh, Chad, Mali, Central African Republic, India, Guinea, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso and Nepal respectively. In India, about 27 per cent of women aged 20 to 49 years were married before age 15.
About 31 per cent of women in that age group were married after age 15 but before they turned 18.
Female genital mutilation and child marriage profoundly and permanently harm girls, denying them their right to make their own decisions and to reach their full potential.
