Dowry is a kind of gift which is given by bride’s family in the form of durable goods, cash and movable-immovable property to her husband and his family on the occasion of marriage. According to : – “ In some cultures, the bride or her family pays a certain amount of money or property to the groom when a couple is married. This payment is called dowry”. (2015) – “Dowry is the money, goods or estate that a woman brings to her husband or his family in marriage”.
Harbilas sarda – “The money which is given by parents to bride-groom is called gift, but when it crosses its certain limit is called dowry”.
