Indian Village Banned Unmarried Women From Owning Mobile Phones, See Why

In a bid to encourage young unmarried women
to study, an Indian village has released a rule
banning them from owning a mobile phone.
According to Hindustan Times, the panchayat
(government) of Suraj village, located about
100km from Gujarat state's financial capital of
Ahmedabad, has imposed a fine of 2,100 rupees
(equivalent of $31) on anyone who violates the
rule, while the informant will be paid 200
rupees ($3) compensation for his or her trouble.
"Internet is a waste of time and money for a
middle-class community like us. Girls should
better utilize their time for study and other
works," said village head, Devshi Vankar.
He added that the whole village welcomed the
decision.
However, an unmarried woman could use her
parents' phone to contact a relative who wishes
to talk to her.
