Arundhati Swarna Yojana is an initiative of the Assam Government under which gold will be given to the brides who register their marriage. The scheme was launched to tackle the problem of increasing unregistered marriages by rewarding those brides who register their marriages in the state. According to a report, out of almost 3 lakh marriages that are organized in the state every year, only 50,000 or 60,000 of them are registered under the Special Marriage Act 1954. The government actually fulfilled multiple motives through this scheme as beneficiaries of this scheme are those who are not strong economically & it serves as a welfare scheme for them and by rewarding 10mg Gold the government is reducing the unregistered marriages problem as well.
Giving gold on marriages is a tradition in India due to which the Assam govt. decided to reward gold to the beneficiary brides. Mr. Himant Biswa, the finance minister of Assam announced the scheme in February 2019 and it was projected to be in implementation by Jan 2020. Due to the pandemic situation, the implementation of the scheme got delayed to September 2020. The annual budget allocated for this scheme by the Assam govt. is around INR 800 crores. In India, gold has emotions attached to it and if the occasion is marriage then it is a must and with that, it is an asset as well. With the help of this scheme the govt. of Assam is also giving satisfaction to the parents who wish to gift gold or anything to their daughter on her marriage but couldn’t do so because of the financial conditions of the family.
