Hundred and four differently-abled couples got married at a mass ceremony organised in Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh on Wednesday, thereby creating a world record, PTI reported. 

"This was for the first time in the world when 104 physically-challenged couples tied the knot at one place. This record got entry into the Golden Book of World Records," a government official told the news agency. 

There was one Sikh couple and 77 Hindu and 26 Muslim couples who got married at the function organised by the district administration.

Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Thawar Chand Gehlot and District Collector Sanket Bhondve, who were present at the ceremony, were presented a certificate by the Golden Book of World Records officials.

In a similar ceremony in January, at least 51 differently-abled and financially challenged couples got married at a mass marriage ceremony in New Delhi. 

Narayan Seva Sansthan- a charitable organisation- organised the mass wedding ceremony for the couples "as a sign of solidarity towards the community".
