From food to extravagant decoration, Indian weddings are famous for many reasons. And after a new order by the MP government, it seems like Madhya Pradesh weedings would now be famous for toilet selfies.
As per the new orders, now grooms will have to share their picture standing in front of the toilet in order to avail Rs 51,000 under the Mukhya Mantri Kanya Vivah/ Nikha scheme.
The implementation comes after the government realised it was practically impossible for the officials to individually scan each house for toilets. Thus now they demand a #selfie-standing-in-toilet from the groom.
“The idea of grooms being required to prove they have a toilet before marrying is not a bad thing. The social justice department has not issued any such directive. The implementation of the policy can be better,” says J N Kansotiya, principal secretary of department of social justice and disabled welfare.
The Mukhya Mantri Kanya Vivah/Nikah Scheme is for economically backward sections.
