Surat: Demonetisation has hit us all and a working ATM with lots of cash in it is what most of us have been looking for since the decision was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8.

The cash crunch that the country is facing has not spared anyone and that is why this couple decided to go for a simple wedding.

Hailing from Gujarat’s Surat city, the duo got married in just Rs 500 as demonetisation hit their wedding budget. The family members served tea and water to the guests who were invited for the wedding.

The couple said they were initially tensed after PM Modi made the demonetisation announcement. But as the date was fixed, they decided to keep their wedding simple.

“We were initially tensed after Modiji made the demonetisation announcement as our wedding date was fixed. Later after considering the situation, we decided to get married without much grandeur by offering just tea and water to guests,” said the bride.

“Since our wedding date was already fixed; we decided to give up on grand marriage. Instead, we had a ‘chai paani wala’ wedding,” the groom added.
