Spend only 5 lakh Rupees on your wedding, No Grand Weddings – Lok Sabha!

We all are aware that people spend a lot of money on their weddings. In order to flaunt their wealth in front of others, they end up spending a lot of amount on their weddings. Basically, Indian weddings are larger than life and people spend their years of savings in making it a grand affair. Lakhs of money is spent on making it look perfect, just to show-off their social status. But a bill in the Lok Sabha 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. f a family spends above Rs 5 lakh on a wedding, it has to contribute 10 per cent of the amount on marriages of girls from poor families, according to the Bill introduced by Congress MP Ranjeet Ranjan, wife of MP Pappu Yadav. It says that after this proposed legislation comes into force; all marriages shall be registered within 60 days of the solemnization.
This amount collected in the welfare fund will then be utilized to help out in the weddings of girls belonging to underprivileged families. After this proposed bill is passed, all weddings and the associated spending will have to be declared within 60 days of being legalized. Now this is a good idea to cut down the unnecessary amount or charges people spend on the wedding and make it a grand affair. Though no doubt it is a grand affair and the most supreme function for the people who are getting married but what if people cannot spend such amount and just to show there fake wealth they are making it a grand one. So, this could be good news for the people who do not want to spend a huge amount on the wedding but are forced to do so. Now they can take a deep breath, relax and concentrate on genuine expenses which they need to take care on the wedding.

The purpose of this bill is to prohibit extravagant and wasteful expenditure on marriages and to enforce simpler solemnization. This is no doubt a great decision, if we look out from the prospective of a girl’s family. They have to spend somewhere in lakhs in order to fulfill the requirement of the grooms family and in the pressure sometime they tend to take loans from banks and borrow money from relatives to get there girl married. Who won’t want their child to be happily married and make it a grand affair just like the people do nowadays? But every family and parents cannot afford that huge amount at times and end up losing everything they have. But this might be a good step for many people but still could be a wrong one who wants to spend a lot and make it a grand affair. People have different opinion but can’t help it!
