Bengaluru: The State government has announced the dates for the mass marriage ceremony ‘Saptapadhi’, which will be held at Grade A temples coming under the Religious Endowment department.

The ceremony, slated to be held on April 26 and May 24 had been postponed due to the coronavirus induced-lockdown in the nation.

The government has now decided to hold the marriage in seven phases. It has finalised July 23, July 26, July 29, August 6, August 10, August 14 and August 17 for the proposed mass marriage ceremony.

Earlier the government had received over 4000 applications. But considering the fact that few of these marriages might have been held in a low-key manner, during the lockdown, the government has again invited applications from couples wanting to tie the knot.

Muzrai Dept through the temples will provide 8-gram gold mangalya to the bride while groom will get panch, shirt and shalya. Also a sum of Rs 55,000 will be given to the temples to buy things required for a marriage ceremony.
