  • Bill Introduced For NRI Men To Register Marriage Within 30 Days

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday introduced the Registration of Marriage of Non-Resident Indians Bill in the Rajya Sabha.

"Therefore, it is necessary that the marriage solemnized or otherwise in India or outside India shall be registered within a period of 30 days from the date of marriage," the Bill's objectives state.


"It has been decided to bring in a legislation to provide for compulsory registration of marriage for better enforcement of rights of the deserted spouses under various family laws," it added.


The Bill also seeks to amend the Passport Act, 1967 and the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973.


The proposed amendment to the Passport Act, 1967 would empower the passport authorities to impound or cause to be impounded or revoke a passport or travel document of a, NRI, if it is brought to his notice that the person has not registered his marriage within a period of 30 days from the date of marriage.


The proposed amendments to the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 would also empower the courts for issuance of summons and warrants through the specifically-designated website of the Ministry of External Affairs.


It further provides for attachment of the properties, both movable and immovable, belonging to a proclaimed offender.
