girls between 1519 years in Rajasthan are pregnant or mothers

The recent supreme court ruling that having sex with a minor wife amounts to rape, could be a huge relief for underage girls in Rajasthan, where 6.3 per cent of the total women population between 15 and 19 years are already mothers or been pregnant.

According to the 2011 Census, 31.6 per cent of girls in Rajasthan were married before the age of 18. A more recent survey by the National Family Health Survey (NFHS-4) 2015-16 pointed to an even higher number, with 35.4 percent of girls aged between 20 and 24 years getting married before attaining the legal age.
