hmm, that sounds interesting. While there are thousands of divorces being filed in India stating reasons such as adultery, incompatibility or even that wife doesn’t cook, this was a landmark achievement for our courts. We know that Indian courts takes years to settle a case with more than fifteen hearings. However, in this case, the husband works abroad and had requested the court to allow him to appear for the hearings through VC or Video Conferencing, considering the expense of coming down to India every month. The court approved this request.
Interestingly, a divorce case was handled through VC by a Chennai court last year.
Although the news about people getting divorce due to many reasons (some of them strange) is sad, this measure by the court should be welcomed. Its good to know that courts are living up to the technology around !.
