Are you planning your extravaganza wedding of your dreams, or for your loved ones ?? Then, hit the brakes if your are planning so.
Getting into it, there’s a new marriage Bill being introduced in Lok Sabha that seeks to put a limit on the number of guests to be invited and also the dishes to be served in the wedding.
The Marriages (Compulsory Registration and Prevention of Wasteful Expenditure) Bill, 2016, introduced by Bihar Congress MP Ranjeet Ranjan, wife of MP Pappu Yadav.
According to this bill, if a family spends above Rs 5 lakh on a wedding then it has to contribute 10 percent of the amount on marriages of girls from poor families.
” These days, marriages are most about showing off your wealth and as a result, poor families are under tremendous social pressure to spend more, this is needed to be checked,” says MP Ranjan.
This may be taken up as a private member’s Bill in the upcoming Lok Sabha session.
