  Imagine you are at a restaurant dining out with your friends, the bill comes and you pay it at  that moment. The bill was huge enough to get you into monetary crisis. Unfortunately, you are having  hard time getting it back; reminding them again and again but you aren't getting back, eventually you have to borrow from someone or use your credit card or  loan out, apparently be on debt. Why should we face such situation where you face a monetary crisis because you paid for everyone for a lunch. 

    THE DUTCH ETIQUETTE, splitting the bill as an etiquette, one should have one's duty to pay. In many countries i.e., Netherlands, Canada, Germany. They have this rule that if they go out to eat, they have to split the bill and it is the waiter's duty to ask that if the bill will be paid separately or an individual will pay it, also the waiter has to split the bill among all the patrons according to one's order. Technology has also gone far to make it easier, companies have introduce a number of money splitting app but people are blind to this. Some people who use it are doing great, but the number is less.

 A question, why is DUTCH ETIQUETTE is  helpful for our society. well, In India only 24 lakh earn more than Rs.10 lakh out of the 3.65 crore individuals (filing returns in assessment 2014-2015).The middle and the lower class people are going in debt day by day, taking out loan. There are people who earn for hand to mouth, who generally suffer, and loan out money from someone else to get out from economic crisis. Hence it forms a chain of loans, which becomes one's financial burden.

   We have also heard many News like ' A man was murdered for not paying 500 back', so think how much anger, grudge is inside people even for 500 , now think of larger amounts.People generally keep quiet and suffer it. In a life a person pays unwillingly  many times. It can also be huge amount. A person can save a lot if it is equally divided or if person returns the money back.

  We appeal to amend certain  laws and regulations for this as follows

  • If a person loans out, what are protocols to be followed to get back the money on time and if delayed what should be done ?
  • Split any bill on-spot if the amount is more than 5000, unless willingly by an individual paid by the agreement of all the patrons
  •  The amount spent in wedding should be split between bride's and groom's family( If the bride's family is willing to bear all the cost an agreement must be signed)
  • Make people aware about how important is one's money, and how it is one's duty to pay your own.
  • Make people about splitting app, so that people have their own convenience.
