In Sahu Samaj, among the 48 couples which got married, no money was taken from 6 of the couples as their families are financially not as strong. Not only their wedding was conducted for free, but each couple was also presented with a Fixed Deposit Bond worth Rs. 25000 from community account.

Motive behind mass wedding is minimising wastage of food and most importantly providing a common platform to all irrespective of their financial strength.
