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.

If a family spends above Rs 5 lakh on a wedding, it has to contribute 10% of the amount on marriages of girls from poor families, according to the bill introduced by MP Ranjeet Ranjan, wife of MP Pappu Yadav.
