No Third Child After 2 Daughters, Re 1 As Dowry, Says Haryana Khap

Published on 21 December, 2015 at 4:33 pm By

The Khap panchayat, which is infamous for its orthodox diktats, has recently issued a new order to end dowry and female foeticide practices.

Haryana’s Bura khap panchayat has ruled that only Rs 1 would be taken from girl’s family by the groom. Also, no third child should be conceived after the birth of two daughters.

The Khap head Rajbir Bura said that they will felicitate the couples who meet the new criteria.

To reduce the financial burden on the bride’s family, the Khap ordered that only 21 members from the bridegroom family will take part in the wedding procession.

Rajbir said:

“The decision was much needed as too many people constituting a ‘baraat’ puts an unnecessary financial burden on the bride’s family.”

Amongst other decisions, it was also ruled that the mourning period after the death of a family member would be reduced from 13  to 7 days.



“It was also decided to end the old practice of not having wheat flour, pulses and ghee (clarified butter) during the mourning period,” Rajbir added.

Felicitating sportsmen, social activists and writers was also proposed during the meeting of the Khap members.

The decisions come as a breath of fresh air, but Khap views on inter-caste and same-gotra marriages are still problematic.

Recently, a Hisar khap panchayat ordered a newly-wed couple to start living as brother and sister because they had the same gotra.

The family has been warned of the social boycott if they don’t follow the order.
