Supplementary notes

The traditional caste system in India forbids marriage outside the caste. But since independence, discrimination based on castes in various religions is banned by the constitution. According to a survey in 2014, about five percent of marriages are inter-caste in the country.

Figures may not not add up to 100 due to rounding off.
