4. This is really a disgrace and stronger measures are warranted.
It is primarily a North Indian phenomenon and in some communities, it is already hard for boys to find a girl.

This has created a reverse dowry -- where the boys have to give an exorbitant dowry to marry a girl. Those economic forces will eventually stop this madness. Until then, confiscatory penalties are called for.
