Delhi government has introduced a policy that will be closely keeping a tab at the amount of food that is been wasted, the number of guests that you have invited to the wedding and how costly the venue will be. This government policy is expected to start this month.
After the Auli Wedding, this decision is proving to be immensely important and also creative. They will no just be saving the wastage of food but will also distribute surplus food to the underprivileged people via NGOs. The event organizers and the food caterers will have to enroll themselves with an NGO that will make sure that the food reaches the underprivileged.
The quantity of food should be in accordance with the number of guests that will be attending the wedding. The guest list must be approved by the Urban Local Body (ULB) and should be able to fit those many people in the venue. If any of this is not being followed the Commissioner Food Safety will have to take action depending on the situation. They will also be doing inspections to keep a check on if the rules are being enforced or not.
According to India Today report, the number of guests will have to equal to the divided area of the venue by 1.5 sqm or by multiplying the total number of cars that can be parked by four.
The venue operators will now have to be more careful as they will be charged a hefty fine of ₹ 5 lakh for the first offense, Rs 10 lakh for second and Rs 15 lakh for the third and so on and so forth.
The area of the venues must be equal or more than 2.5 acres and only then will it be fit for social gatherings. Moreover, the place should also have proper parking space and should be easily accessible from the main road. The social gathering must not leave garbage behind and make sure no pollution norms are broken.
