In what it looks like a bizarre rule, there is a village named Madora, near Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh where women are not allowed to use mobile phones in public. According to the police, this is an attempt to restrict their contact with men. Also, if someone violates this rule, then she'll be charged with hefty fines.

If any woman is found using a mobile phone outside her home, then she will be fined a hefty amount of Rs. 21,000 as per the rule made by the village elders.

According to a report published in deccanchronicle, local police chief Arun Kumar Singh says, "We have received reports about the Khap Panchayat ordering the ban on women using mobile phones, such orders are against the constitution and we will take action."

The panchayat says using mobile phones helps unmarried women to elope and that a ban will limit their interaction with men. Earlier, the panchayat had also imposed fines for many other illegal activities such as cow slaughter or liquor smuggling.
