Marriage functions of Navi Mumbai couples held in Mumbai cannot be labelled as destination wedding: Supreme Court

09, Oct 2018 By Santosh Pradhan

Mumbai: Mumbai is a city of dreams and people come here from far off places to make their dreams a reality. But then people also come from Navi Mumbai and Virar to work here. The craze for Mumbai among people in Navi Mumbai is so high that some couples hold their marriage functions in Mumbai and call it a destination wedding. This has been a trend in many of the last years.


Harneet Singh, a resident of Navi Mumbai, who recently got married to his longtime girlfriend did the same when he printed the invitation cards with ‘Destination Wedding’ written on them. This made their friends excited about the marriage. Some friends shopped for clothes, some learned to dance and many spent a lot of money to look cool at the destination wedding. But everyone left in shock when Harneet announced 2 days before his wedding that the destination of the wedding will be Mumbai. Dreams were shattered, sad faces were seen among Harneet’s friends.

One of his friends, Sanil Jain then filed a PIL against Harneet for showing them the dreams of a destination wedding and calling them to the crowded city of Mumbai. The court heard all arguments and made the final decision today. The Supreme court judge mentioned in his judgment that such invitations will be considered as a crime from next time and strict punishment will be given to the offenders.
