Bhopal – You must have heard about renting cars and houses. But, I have not heard of getting a wife for rent. If you say that there is a place in the country where a wife is hired, you will not believe. But it is true. This is happening in one area of the country. In fact, in Shivpuri district of Madhya Pradesh, this evil practice is known as dharicha practice.
Every year a market is arranged here for the rent of girls and women. Buyers from far and wide come to hire wives for themselves. After the contract is finalized, an agreement is made between the buyer male and the female seller on stamp paper of 10 to 100 rupees. He pays for the amount of time the girl wants and keeps the girl with him for that time. She later left him.
According to the data, the price of girls in the market can range from Rs 15,000 to Rs 4 lakh. Buyers are likely to call everyone who looks appropriate, if there are only a few. There are unmarried girls in the market and some have wives. After the contract expires, the woman is married to another man. If the first man wants to keep the woman, then he has to pay a large sum again.
Women can break the contract in the middle if they want. If the woman does this, she will have to give an affidavit on stamp paper. After that, she has to return a certain amount to her husband. It has been seen that the woman broke the contract even after receiving more money than other men. According to sources, such incidents have been reported not only in Madhya Pradesh but also in some parts of Gujarat. Although in some areas it has become a business. The biggest reasons for this are poverty and low sex ratio.
