A

survey conducted by the National Sample Survey Office after the Akash Ambani- Shloka Mehta wedding has revealed that the unemployment rate in India has fallen by two per cent after 10,000 jobs were created during the extravagant celebrations spread over 15 days. The Ambani wedding project has employed the highest number of people after anti-Romeo squads and IT-cell trolls.
