Despite a ban on child marriage in the state, girls between the ages of 15 and 17 are still off marriage in some villages, while in some cases parents try to sell their daughter as money for marriage. It happened in Viramgam taluka of Ahmedabad district. The parents of the 15-year-old daughter took the money and married the daughter at an early age. 1 month later, the young woman boldly enlisted the help of the Women’s Helpline Abhayam. The helpline team rescued the girl from her clutches and also informed the bikeline that child marriage was illegal by sending her to Sakhi One Stop Center.

The women's helpline 181 received a call from a 15-year-old girl from Viramgam taluka that her parents had married against her will and I did not want to live with her in-laws. So the team of women's helpline reached the father-in-law of the village. Talking to the young lady, he said that she is 15 years old. About 1 month ago my parents got married against my will. After the in-laws arrived, the husband and in-laws were arguing and talking. So she enlisted the help of a women's helpline.
