The Haryana Government has made the Haryana Unlawful Religious Conversion Prevention Rules, 2022. In case of forced conversion, the victims will be able to approach the court. The competent court will issue an order for maintenance and cost of proceedings keeping in view the income of the petitioner and the accused. After the decision of the court, the convict will have to start paying the amount of monthly maintenance to the victim within sixty days from the date of service of notice. The victim can be either a boy or a girl.

Even if the boy or girl is not satisfied with the marriage despite having a child after forced conversion, they can approach the court. On the orders of the court, the convict will also have to pay maintenance amount for the better future of the minor child born out of wedlock. Under Section 6 of the Act, a provision has been made to declare a marriage void.
