A new bill has been tabled in India which aims to prevent the abuse of women. It says Indians in the UAE have to register marriage within 30 days if it becomes a law.
India’s Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj introduced the Registration of NRI Marriages Bill 2019, in Rajya Sabha, the upper house of the Indian parliament, on Monday.
The Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) who are marrying Indian women have to register the wedding with the required time period, if they do not obey the Bill, it will seize the passport.
In order to give more protection to the Indian women from being exploited by their NRI husbands, a joint initiative has been taken by the ministries of External Affairs, Women and Child Development, Home Affairs and Law and Justice.
According to the ministry the Integrated Nodal Agency that was formed to look into this issue has already canceled passports of 33 NRIs for abandoning their wives and issued eight Look-Out Circulars (LoCs) on absconding husbands.
The Bill proposes a revision to the Passport Act to authorize the Passport Authority to revoke the passport of an NRI who has not registered his marriage if the authority gets the information about it.
In a bid to ensure justice to increasing number of Indian women being abandoned by their NRI husbands, the Bill also has provisions for attachment of properties belonging to the NRI, if he does not appear before the Court and is declared as Proclaimed Offender by the Court.
The Consul General of India in Dubai, Vipul said “When the accused men do not receive the court summons and do not appear for the hearings or abide by the court’s verdict, it is difficult for us to bring them to justice. With this law, Indian authorities can cancel their passports and we can intimate the local authorities here about it.”
“The government will definitely not take action without any complaint or without studying the cases thoroughly,” he added.
