‘The construction work began late on Sunday night and was completed before the marriage was performed,’ said Sanjay Kumar, Deputy Collector in the CM’s office.
All payments for the marriage from the tent house rent to purchase of vegetables, groceries and jewellery were made without cash. Even the donation to the priest who performed the marriage and the gifts presented to the couple were done online or through cheques.
Both families and the villagers were happy to be part of the cashless society movement launched across the country by PM Modi.
A joint account for the couple was also opened instantly and an ATM card was handed over to them after the marriage. Almost the entire village turned up to witness the unique cashless marriage ceremony.
