J&K weddings: Govt limits number of guests and food served
The Jammu and Kashmir government has banned the big fat weddings to curb the wastage of food in these social events.
The restructuring, announced by the state government is aimed at the number of guests invited for weddings, engagement parties to avoid wastage of food during these functions.
Now you can only invite 500 guests for a daughter’s wedding and 400 for a son’s wedding. For the ring ceremonies people can invite 100 guests
If the implementing agencies found anyone violating the government orders they will have to face the law.
Kashmiri weddings are prolonged and lavish celebrations where tonnes of meat and rice is consumed which allegedly causes sharp rises in local food prices during the fall.
The state government has asked the deputy commissioners of the state to implement the decision and ensure its full implication.
The government has also restricted number of dishes served during the wedding: seven non-veg and seven vegetarian dishes can be made available in marriages besides two items of sweets or ice cream.
