A unique cashless wedding ceremony held at Jamshedpur city in Jharkhand. It seems our honorable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi’s push for ‘Swachch Bharat’ and ‘Digital India’ is having a great effect across India.
A toilet was built at the groom’s house, just before the marriage was solemnized and then the whole ceremony was performed in a cashless manner at a temple at Badia in East Singhbhum district.
This cashless wedding ceremony was first-of-its-kind in the state and the villagers came in an unexceptional numbers to witness this unique marriage ceremony.
The parents of the bride Sunita from Itihasa village and groom Subhash Nayak from Badia village came together to build the toilet for the bride whose construction work began on Sunday night and was completed before the marriage was duly performed, according to Sanjay Kumar, Deputy Collector in the Chief Minister’s camp office.
Mr. Kumar convinced the parents on both the sides to embrace technology, make digital payments wherever possible or pay through cheque.
From the rent of tent house to the purchase of other necessary items like vegetables, groceries and jewellery, everything were done without using any cash.
The family and the villagers were happy to be part of this cashless movement in the country.
A joint account of the couple was also instantly opened during the wedding and an ATM card was handed over to them soon after the wedding ceremony, Mr Kumar said.
Isn’t this making you all proud?? This is making me feel elated. I proud to be an Indian.
