Big recommendation of the Law Commission.

The Law Commission has expressed concern over the increase in cases of marriage fraud among NRI Indian citizens. The Commission has recommended that all marriages between NRIs, NRIs and Indian citizens should be compulsorily registered in India. Along with this, the Commission has also demanded a comprehensive law to deal with this problem. Let us know what other recommendations the commission has made.

What is the opinion of the Law Commission?

Retired Justice Ruturaj Awasthi, Chairman of the Law Commission, has submitted a report titled ‘Law on Matrimonial Issues Relating to Non-Resident Indians and Overseas Citizens of India’ to the Law Ministry. In this report, the Commission has opined that the proposed Central Law should be a sufficiently comprehensive law to cover all aspects of marriage of Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) and Overseas Citizens of Indian Origin (OCI) with Indian citizens.

Recommendation sent to Law Minister Arjunram Meghwal

Retired Justice Rituraj Awasthi has written a covering letter to India’s Law Minister Arjunram Meghwal in this regard. In this he has said that the increasing fraud in marriage matters between NRIs and Indian citizens is worrying. Several reports have also revealed this growing trend where these marriages turn out to be fraudulent, leaving Indian spouses, especially women, in a precarious situation. The Commission said that such a law should be applicable not only to NRIs but also to people coming with the status of Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) of Indian origin. Also all marriages between NRIs/OCI and Indian citizens must be compulsorily registered in India. At the same time, the central law should also include provisions for divorce, spousal maintenance, custody and maintenance of children, service of summons, warrants or judicial documents on NRIs and OCIs.

Changes in Passport Act necessary – Law Commission

Retired Justice Rituraj Awasthi in his report has asked the government to amend the Passport Act, 1967 to make it mandatory to declare marital status, link the passports of the spouses with each other and mention the marriage registration number on the passports of both. Amendments need to be made. (input language)
