Several years ago a website named Dowry Calculator was launched. How much dowry would be received, that information was given through this website. But the central government banned that website. It was argued that dowry is being promoted through this website. While the creator of the website said that through sarcasm, people were being asked not to take dowry. Now because the website has been banned, the matter reached the court where an appeal was made that the ban should be removed from the website. Now the Delhi High Court has sought an answer from the Center in this matter.

When the hearing of the case started on Monday, Justice Pratibha M Singh first wanted to know whether the creator of the website earned any money through this website? On this it was clearly said that not even a single penny was earned through the website. People are told about dowry only in a joking manner. On this, Justice Pratibha agreed that the website is very creative, but it was also emphasized from her side that it promotes many things.

In this regard, Justice Pratibha said that you can call it satire or satire, but it is promoting a social evil. He is encouraging for dowry. On this, the counsel for the petitioner said that on our website it is said in the end that your current amount is one crore rupees. Now I do not believe that any child will check how much his dowry calculation is. The petitioner’s lawyer clearly said that this is a sarcasm and everyone knows that only joking is being done. On this, Justice Pratibha said that if you promote this website more, then children will also start showing interest. For now, a notice has been issued by the court in this matter, a reply has also been sought from the Centre. The next hearing is to be held on May 16.

For information, let us tell you that this website was first banned in the year 2018. But later the petitioners agreed to put a disclaimer on their website as well. But only after that the ban was continued. Now the matter has again reached the court to remove the ban. The next hearing is to be held on May 16.
