Tipping Point to End Child Marriage

Noted child rights activist, author, Supreme Court lawyer and founder of CMFI campaign, Bhuwan Ribhu has authored a ‘When Children Have Children: Tipping Point to End Child Marriage’ and put forth a framework advocating a sustainable, holistic and focused strategy with time-bound targets and measurable indicators to make India child marriage free by 2030. This book shows the path to eliminating child marriage in India within the next decade. As suggested by the author in the book, by adopting a systematic, highly focused, and intensive intervention model, over a phased timeline it is possible to reduce the national child marriage prevalence levels to 5.5% —the threshold, the tipping point, beyond which the prevalence is anticipated to diminish organically with reduced reliance on targeted interventions.

Tipping Point Methodology

The aim of reduction of 60% of child marriage (in each of the phases) is assumed to bring down the incidence of child marriage to 5.5% in the next 9 nine years from 2021, from the last available estimates i.e., NFHS-5, till 2030. An additional assumption is that such a focused and elaborate intervention against child marriage would have a ripple effect. The tipping point analysis has been divided into two phases. The first phase will extend over a period of six years, starting in 2021. Subsequently, the second phase will span over a three-year period. It is expected that the national average for child marriage prevalence (percentage women aged 20-24 who were married before 18 years) would decline from 23.3% to 13.7% if the prevalence of child marriage is reduced by 60% in the 257 high-prevalence districts in the first phase followed by a further reduction of 60% in all districts across the country.

In order to reach the Tipping Point, the author has proposed a strategy at national and district level.

  1. National Level strategy where Governments, Institutions, statutory bodies, etc. work towards prevention, protection, increased investment, improved prosecution, convergence and use of technology for monitoring

  2. District Level strategy is similar to national level strategy but includes district administration, Panchayats, civil society, NGOs, other functionaries, parents and children who work collectively to prevent, report, and take action against child marriage

बाल विवाह से निपटने के लिए PICKET रणनीति

Addressing the issue of child marriage requires a comprehensive and coordinated approach of different government departments, institutions, statutory bodies, and civil society organisations. The Child Marriage Free India campaign is pillared on the ‘PICKET’ strategy as it requires a multi-pronged approach. For India as a nation to end child marriage by 2030, the PICKET strategy would entail the following:


बाल विवाह के मुद्दे को हल करने के लिए विभिन्न सरकारी विभागों, संस्थानों, वैधानिक निकायों और सामाजिक संगठनों के व्यापक और समन्वित दृष्टिकोण की आवश्यकता है। बाल विवाह मुक्त भारत अभियान 'PICKET' रणनीति पर आधारित है क्योंकि इसके लिए बहु-आयामी दृष्टिकोण की आवश्यकता है।


P - रोकथाम और संरक्षण के लिए नीतिगत हस्तक्षेप

I - बाल विवाह को रोकने के लिए क्षमता और संस्थानों में निवेश

C - स्वास्थ्य, शिक्षा, सामाजिक सुरक्षा, और सामुदायिक भागीदारी का अभिसरण

K - ज्ञान-संचालित निर्णय लेना

E - 18 वर्ष से कम उम्र के सभी बच्चों के लिए शिक्षा एक अधिकार, और कौशल एवं आजीविका प्रशिक्षण

T - परिवर्तन के लिए टैकनोलजी
