I think it is not Beyond Prohibited Degree under Section 5(iv) of Hindu Marriage Act.
As per the Law degrees of prohibited relationship of a male :- (xii) mother's sister, (xv) mother's sister's daughter, (xvi) mother's brother's daughter.
And prohibited degrees of a female are :- (f) mother's brother, (k) mother's brother's son, (l) mother's sister's son.
Here in this Act, Mother's maternal uncle's daughter though it is the sister of mother, but as it is not full blood, then it does not fall under Prohibited Degree of Marriage. As such the marriage valid one.

The Hindu Marriage Act makes cousin marriage illegal for Hindus with the exception of marriages permitted by regional custom. Cousin marriage is proscribed and seen as incest for Hindus in north India. In fact it may even be unacceptable to marry within one's village or for two siblings to marry partners from the same village.

While marriages within sapinda relationship are prohibited,by custom such marriages may be valid. In South India marriages between first cousins (children of brother and sister) and between uncle and niece (sister's daughter) are valid by custom.
