Bengaluru: Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa launched ‘Sapthapadi’, a free mass marriage program at Vidhana Soudha here on Friday, January 10.

Yediyurappa officially released the invitation card on the occasion. As per the ‘Sapthapadi’ scheme, free mass marriages will be held at Grade A temples shortlisted by the Muzrai department and the bride will be given Rs 10,000 cash and a mangalsutra worth Rs 40,000 while Rs 5,000 will be given to the groom.

Yediyurappa also confirmed that the government will help communities like Muslim and Christians also to organise mass marriage as per their respective rituals.

According to the state government guidelines, issued last year in November, both parents of the couple should attend the ceremony if the duo wants to avail benefits of this offer but those who want to marry without their parent’s permission do not stand a chance here.

The plan is to conduct about 1,000 marriages in 90-100 temples. The couples wanting to tie the knot are expected to register themselves 30 days before the scheduled date in the temple. Following which a list will be prepared.
