NEW DELHI:The menu at weddings and the number of guests should be limited to check extravagance, proposes a new bill to be taken up in parliament.
A private member's bill to be raised in the Lok Sabha also suggests that those spending more than five lakhs on a wedding be asked to do a good turn by contributing towards weddings of girls from poor families.
The bill has been initiated by Congress lawmaker Ranjeet Ranjan, the wife of controversial Bihar politician Pappu Yadav.
"These days, weddings are more 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 as it is not good for society at large," Ranjan said as per reports.(Agencies)
