Congress MP Introduces Bill to Curb Extravagance in Marriages

News Patiala:- A new bill has been introduced in Parliament by Congress MP Jasbir Singh Gill to curb extravagance in marriages. The bill, called the Prevention of Extravagance on Special Occasions Bill, proposes a number of restrictions on wedding celebrations, including:

  • Limiting the number of guests to 50
  • Restricting the number of dishes to 10
  • capping the amount of money given as omens at 2500 rupees

The bill also encourages couples to donate gifts received at their wedding to charity instead of keeping them.

Gill, who represents the Khadur Sahib constituency in Punjab, said that the bill was necessary to “end the culture of extramarital marriages”. He said that the current trend of lavish weddings puts a heavy financial burden on families, especially those of the bride.

“I have come to know of many such incidents in which people had to sell their lands and houses or take loans from banks for the marriage of their daughters,” he said.

The bill is still in its early stages, but it has already generated a lot of interest. If it is passed into law, it would be a major step towards curbing the extravagance of Indian weddings.
