Raising a philosophical question on Marriage Bill
Posted March 26, 2012on:
All those hue and cry which media made was based on Press Trust of India news http://www.ptinews.com/news/Friday-dyallhead . Earlier when the parliamentary committee sent its report to parliament it made the suggestions as below
Accordingly, the Committee feels that there should be some effective legal mechanism so that the women at least get their share in the matrimonial property which has been acquired during the subsistence of marriage. The Committee, accordingly, recommends the Government to make adequate provisions in the Matrimonial Law to ensure that the courts, while adjudicating on divorce petitions, also decide upon women’s share in the matrimonial property while granting divorce so that they are not deprived of the assets/properties in which they have contributed during the continuance of marriage.
Since the REDRAFTED bill is not yet available to the public, it is unclear at this point that how this is suggestion is incorporated in the bill. Is this conditional; is it specific to any percentiles; what amounts to “contribution” and a myriad of questions are yet to be answered.
