On Nov 6th around 12:45pm, we received a marriage case from CCC. 14 year old Anjali from Pallimaktha village, Konaraopeta mandal, Rajanna Sircilla district was going to get married. We immediately informed CMPO’s and Line departments and reached the child’s home along with DCPO, ASI, ICDS Supervisor, Police Head Constable, MRO and Anganwadi teacher. We took all the details and verified age proof certificates such as Aadhar, study certificates and confirmed that her age is below 18 years. We then provided counseling to parents and child. We explained about prohibition of child marriage act-2006 rules and also about health, mental and physical problems that child will face and also that it is punishable for one year jail. After counseling they changed their opinion and postponed the marriage. The child is now living with parents and back in school.
