National Workshop on Non-Resident Indian (NRI) Marriages: Need for a New Legal Regime

In Indian context, the workshop would be relevant for the policy-makers and the Courts so that a clear policy may be formulated. Any clear trends of public opinion and the socio-legal data which could be available as part of the research out-put under the proposed research plan may lead to a clear policy decision to put an end to the continuing ambiguity and lack of uniform judicial trends in regard to the issues relating to NRI marriage.

Moreover the proposed workshop shall capture the changing moral values, individual preferences and judgments as part of basic human rights and the legally prescribed dispensation of State articulated grounds of divorce and enforcement of foreign divorce decrees. It is an attempt to deal with this issue and to come up with suggestive measures in best interest of the society, which may help the policy makers to review the prevalent laws.
