FIRST APPEAL No. - 227 of 2018

About/from the judgment:

Consent Divorce Decree Appealable If Consent Is Disputed And In The Absence Of Inquiry By Court!

 

The bench also observed that Section 28 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 which permitted filing of appeal against the decrees and orders passed under the Act placed no rider on filing appeal even against a consent decree. “It permitted appeal against all decrees made by the Court in any proceedings under the Act, except those relating to award of costs. Thus, by necessary implication, even consent or compromise decree, if passed under the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 were open to appeal,” it added.

 

Admitting the appeal, the bench said: “We are of the opinion that the appeal even against a consent decree under such facts and circumstances of the case, where the consent itself is disputed and no inquiry has been conducted by the court below is maintainable, subject to objection on appearance by the other side.”
