Dear Sister,

Its nice to learn that you dad intends to deliver the Mahr.
There is no appreciation in it since it was said to be Rs 2,500. It still stands to remain Rs 2,500 and he can give it to your mum in the form of cash.

if the Mahr was fixed in the form of gold then the amount would have changed in respect to the current gold prices.

However your dad can give more than what was fixed if its in his capacity.
