A Guide To Court Procedures In India

Folks,
What are the procedures that are followed when a case goes to court?I don’t know and I am sure that you don’t know either. I am searching/looking for this info and it would be great if someone could gift me this information. I found this book called “A Handbook Of Court Procedures In India” at this site.
Here is an Alternative site.
Here is an overview of the book: ” There is a general feeling among Indians that resorting to court proceedings leads to empty-wallets and heavy heads. This feeling is partly attributable to lack of awareness among common folk about court procedures in India. The present work is an attempt to bring this basic awareness in the litigant’s mind that courts are meant to serve the people by providing the necessary relief. Basic knowledge of court procedures has become a necessity in the modern complex societies. This work envisages a utility not only for the general public but also for the students of law who enter the courts with no knowledge of court procedures.”
This is a good place to start. I will post more info as I go along.

Clarification On NRI Divorces

I am revisiting an old case, the YN Rao vs Venkatalaxmi, NRI divorce case. The crux of the matter is that the Supreme Court has stated, according to the article in TOI given below, that a foreign court has no authority to dissolve a marriage under the Hindu Marriage Act, IF, the person who filed the case in the foreign court is not domiciled (a permanent legal residence) in the jurisdiction of the foreign court.

Here is the link to the YN Rao Vs Venkatalaxmi judgment

Please read this article to understand what the court meant.

Finally read this post to understand the reality of broken NRI marriages and Indian court judgments

Madras HC: No Time Frame For AB

-UNI 18 July 2007

 

The Madras High Court has held that an order of anticipatory bail should not be limited to a particular period of time.
The full bench, comprising Mr Justices R Balasubramanyam, S K Krishnan and R Raghupathy, passed the order on a matter referred to it by the Chief Justice, through an administrative order on June 26, 2007.
The full bench was appointed to hear a case in which two persons, Sudhakaran and Palani Kumar, approached the Madurai bench of Madras High Court to get anticipatory bail. A single judge had granted anticipatory bail, but only for a limited
The Madurai Bar had argued before the single judge that if the court decided to grant anticipatory bail, it should do so without limiting the
The single judge had pointed out the conflict in the Supreme Court judgement on whether the court had the power to grant anticipatory bail for a limited period or not. He had asked the Registry to present the papers before the Chief Justice. The matter was first referred to a Division Bench and later to the full Bench.
The full bench observed that the Supreme Court held conflicting views on the matter and pointed out the Apex Court observation that as per the law of precedence, if a High Court faced conflicting views, it should follow the opinion expressed by the larger Bench.
It also referred to the Constitutional Bench judgement in the case of one Gurupaksh Singh, in which it was held that the operation of the order should not be limited to a particular period of time.

What Does An FIR Form Look Like?

I found this at the NCRB site. The forms are possibly translated into regional languages. This is a 21 page document, so be patient while it loads.

Police Attempting To Arrest Kids, Ages 4 And 8, In A 498A Case

Here is the Link to the article

Here is an excerpt, along with the judgment of Justice Dhingra.

“Kanpur: In an age when the life for little ones is all play and fun,
four year-old Vishal is hiding at an unknown place since June 29,
evading his arrest. Reason: He and his brother Ajay (8) are facing a
non-bailable warrant (NBW) in a dowry harassment case.

Under Section 156(3) of the CrPC, the district court had asked the
police to register a case against Ramesh Kuriel, a resident of
Darshadev village near Gujaini in Kanpur Dehat district, his wife
Shanti and their sons Abhinay (24), Vishal (4) and Ajay (8). The court
issued the directive on a complaint lodged by Abhinay’s wife Deepa,
who had alleged that her in-laws, husband and two minor
brothers-in-law tired to set her ablaze on December 2, 2006 when her
family refused to pay a dowry demand of Rs.50,000, besides a bike. The
two kids have been accused of helping the family in puring kerosene on
Deepa during the unsuccessful bid to set her ablaze.

While the police in a bid to comply with the court order continued
raiding possible hideouts of the kids, the complainants advocate Arun
Srivastava explained that as Deepa had not disclosed the age of the
accused persons, this goof up took place. “We are rectifying the
lapse,” he added. Although Ramesh Kuriel and his wife were granted
bail on Tuesday, their three sons are yet to seek it and come out of
hiding. “Deepa has implicated my entire family after her husband and
my son Abhinay refused to leave us and stay separately,” Ramesh alleged.

The case has, however, added to the swelling number of the frivolous
anti-dowry cases in which the criminal justice system is used as a
tool to settle personal scores. This is happening despite several
higher court orders in the past asking lower courts to avoid
entertaining flimsy use of anti-dowry law. The latest such direction
had come from the Delhi High Court on March 13 last.

“The trial court must take into account the entirety of the case, all
documents which are brought to its notice and thereafter decide
whether there was a case made out or the court was being used as a
tool,” Justice SN Dhingra had observed in his order.”

Calcutta HC: No Alimony For Leaving Hubbies On Flimsy Grounds

Folks,
Here is the judgment. It is a large file (1.4Mb): No Alimony For Leaving Hubbies On Flimsy Grounds

_______________

TIMES NEWS NETWORK
Kolkata: Here is one for the harassed husbands’ club. If a woman leaves her husband’s home on “flimsy grounds”, she is not entitled to maintenance, the Calcutta High Court has ruled.
On Thursday, the HC set aside a lower court’s order and asked a Baranagar youth to stop paying his estranged wife a monthly allowance, after judging that she had left her husband’s home “on flimsy grounds”. The landmark judgment is one of those rare cases where the husband gets reprieve in a case under the stringent section 498A, which is meant to prevent harassment of women but is sometimes exploited by the fair sex for unfair ends. The ruling came as a relief for Baranagar’s Partha Pratim Banik who was locked in a bruising battle with his estranged wife, Arundhati. Their marriage had not been a happy one and they had frequent quarrels. According to sources, Arundhati left Partha’s home suddenly one morning, taking along their fouryear-old son, and filed a case against her husband and inlaws under section 498A for “physical and mental torture”. Later, she claimed in court that Partha had cheated her by claiming he was a computer engineer whereas he was a “computer mechanic”.
A Barrackpore court granted her plea and directed Partha to pay her a monthly maintenance of Rs 1,700 — Rs 1,000 for the boy and Rs 700 for Arundhati. Partha appealed against th e order in high court. The case came up for its final hearing on Thursday. Partha’s counsel Koushik Dey said that the allegations against Partha were false and that Arundhati had left her home voluntarily without any concrete reason. He cited section 4 of 125 CrPC, which states that a wife who refuses to stay with her husband without sufficient reason is not entitled to a maintenance allowance. Dey also claimed that Partha was willing to take Arundhati back home, but she had refused.

Some Interesting Stats On Arrests Of Women

In 1930, the British govt arrested 17,000 women for their involvement in the Dandi Yatra (Salt March). During 1937 to 1947 (10 Years), they arrested 5,000 women involved in the freedom struggle. From 2004 to 2006, the govt of India arrested 90,000 women of all ages under 498A. On the average, 27,000 women per year are being arrested under this flawed law. These are stats from the NCRB.

The family of the writer was tortured by the Indian Police in an attempt to extort over a $100,000 by holding them in custody for over a week. The police, in cahoots with the magistrate and the PP, did this due to the ridiculous allegations made in a 498A case by his embittered ex-wife. She filed the case years after he and his family had last seen her. Thousands of 498A cases are filed each year in India by women seeking to wreak vengeance on their husbands and in-laws. Enormous sums are extorted from intimidated families implicated in these cases by corrupt Indian police officers and elements of the Indian judiciary. The author and his family haven't bribed any public official nor have they given in to the extortion. This blog aims to raise awareness of due process in India.
