Patidar Community Team Combats Marriage Fraud: Global Data Bank Initiative

There is a growing trend in the Patidar community to marry youngsters settled abroad. After marrying NRIs, young women experience a new world on foreign soil, which often leads to cultural adjustments and challenges. Hitesh Patel, the leading figure in the community, revealed that more than 10 such cases have emerged in the Patidar community within a year.

Initiatives to Address Challenges Faced by Young Couples Settled Abroad

To address such issues and maintain communication with members settled abroad, initiatives have been launched to gather information about unmarried youngsters in every country, including the USA and UK. This aims to provide accurate information to community members and resolve post-marriage challenges faced abroad. For this purpose, a committee will be formed comprising representatives from the entire Patidar community of central Gujarat.
