No More Big Fat Weddings ..? Government To Look After New Guestlist..


These days, marriages are more about showing off your wealth spending lakhs on decoration, food, jwellery, and all those extra expenditure of themes and all.. and as a result, poor families are under tremendous social pressure to spend more.

The Marriages (Compulsory Registration and Prevention of Wasteful Expenditure) Bill, 2016, may be taken up as a private member’s Bill in the upcoming Lok Sabha session.

Bill seeks to put a limit on the number of guests to be invited and dishes to be served in weddings to check “show of wealth” and wants those spending above Rs 5 lakh to contribute towards marriages of poor girls. This is needed to be checked as it is not good for society at large,” If a family spends above Rs 5 lakh on a wedding, 10 per cent of the amount should be given in marriages of girls from poor families,

The purpose of this Bill is to stop extravagant and wasteful expenditure on marriages.
