Mandatory Registration Of Marriages

Mandatory Registration Of Marriages:

The Law Commission’s 287th report proposes mandatory registration of marriages involving Non-Resident Indians (NRI) and Overseas Citizens of India (OCI) to address the challenges faced by Indian women deserted by their NRI or OCI spouses.

  • The report suggests revisions to the pending Registration of Marriage of Non-Resident Indians Bill, 2019, to include OCIs and enforce new provisions.
  • These provisions cover penalties for failure to register divorce, maintenance, child support, and non-compliance with legal procedures.
  • The recommendation aims to combat fraudulent marriages and provide legal recourse for women vulnerable to abandonment or exploitation.
