India announced to crack down on fake marriages by NRIs

India announced to crack down on fake marriages by NRIs

Indian Govt. has only one target to aid harassed and abandoned brides at home and abroad.
"There's not only boys who leave girls behind, there are girls who leave boys behind and people who come here and disappear from the airport, or vanish after one week
NRIs established "The Canadian Marriage Fraud Victims Force Society" and will petition Ottawa for a change to Canada's immigration law placing a "three-year condition" on spousal sponsorship.

Calgary, March 11, 2006

India has announced plans to set up an international network to crack down on fake marriages, and has vowed to aid harassed and abandoned brides at home and abroad.

Sending its strongest message to date on the issue of marital fraud involving non-resident Indians, India proposes to create "special cells" in Canada and other "locations that have a significant Indian population," said Vayalar Ravi, minister for overseas Indian affairs.

Wherever required, Ravi said, "the effort would be to get the guilty extradited to India."

This is the third initiative from India in response to Abandoned Brides, a Calgary Herald/Vancouver Province series on the tragic trend of brides in India being abandoned by Canadian men. The series ran over five days in October, and sparked an international outcry.

The units will help parents verify eligibility of prospective grooms, and ensure abandoned brides receive legal and medical aid in India or abroad.

"I would advise state governments to establish independent gender cells to deal with issues related to marriages to overseas Indians and to extend the required assistance. These cells can then act in a co-ordinated manner with the overseas centres," Ravi said.

Vancouver's Indian consul general, Ashok Kumar, welcomed the initiative.

"We are seeking details from Delhi," he said.

India's proposal preceded the establishment last week of the Canadian Marriage Fraud Victims Force Society, a B.C. Lower Mainland immigrant services and lobby group.

At the Grand Taj banquet hall in Surrey, B.C., earlier this month, more than 300 concerned citizens voiced their anger over the growing issue of marital fraud in the Indo-Canadian community.

"There's not only boys who leave girls behind, there are girls who leave boys behind and people who come here and disappear from the airport, or vanish after one week, three weeks," organizer Palwinder Gill said.

Gill, whose Indian wife came to Canada last June and subsequently fled, has formed a non-profit society to assist other victims of marital fraud. The Canadian Marriage Fraud Victims Force Society will petition Ottawa for a change to Canada's immigration law placing a "three-year condition" on spousal sponsorship.

"They would get landed status from the very beginning, but if they are going out of that relationship within three years, their landed status would be cancelled," said Gill. "There would be exceptions, if there is abuse or crime, but there must be solid evidence."

Last October, Sikh holy leaders in Amritsar urged Sikhs to stop offering dowries for their daughters in a bid to prevent dishonest non-resident Indians from seeking to defraud their Indian brides.

In January, New Delhi's Union Ministry for NRI Affairs launched an educational campaign listing precautions women should take when considering marriage proposals from abroad, as well as outlining their rights under Indian law.

Second marriage bid: another NRI groom booked
Kapurthala, March 31, 2008

This is the second such case in four days in which an NRI groom was exposed by his first wife just before he was to tie the knot again.

While on March 26 the NRI groom was beaten up by the kin of the bride, today the boy didn’t turn up for his marriage at Suhaag Palace here. NRI groom Paramjit Singh Pannu from Canada, who hails from Bagga village in Nakodar, was to marry a Kartarpur-based girl. But yesterday, his first wife filed a dowry case against him at Zeera police station and he is absconding.

It was learnt that two days ago, relatives of Pannu’s first wife, Jatinder Pal Kaur, who was in Canada, told her parents about the marriage. She flew back to Punjab yesterday and took the help of the Lok Bhalai Party (LBP) to get Pannu booked. Jatinder also complained to the police that he demanded dowry from her and tortured her mentally. Her parents met Kapurthala SSP Rakesh Agarwal, who marked an inquiry to Kapurthala DSP Sukhdev Singh Chhina.

On the other hand, Pannu claimed that he has divorced Jatinder.

“I have not divorced Paramjit. We got married in 2003 and have a daughter,” she said.

However, the police said Pannu had the ex parte divorce copy with him.

It also was learnt that parents of the bride have also lodged a complaint with the Kartarpur police, and Pannu has also been booked under sections 494 and 420 of the IPC. The match-maker and kin of Pannu have also been booked.

They have also appealed through the LBP that red alert should be sounded at airports so that he doesn’t escape.

Supreme Court reverses trial court judgment on 'saptapadi'

SC reverses trial court judgment on 'saptapadi'
http://www.hinduonnet.com/2001/09/05/stories/0205000v.htm

NEW DELHI, SEPT. 4, 2001. `Saptapadi' (taking seven steps around the sacred fire) was held to be an essential ceremony for a valid marriage between two Hindus (governed by the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955) only in cases where it was admitted by the parties that as per the form of marriage applicable to them that was an essential ceremony,'' the Supreme Court has ruled.

The bench held that the Madras High Court was right in holding that the appellant committed the offence of ``bigamy'', and the matter was correctly remanded to the trial court for awarding appropriate sentence.

Delivering the judgment, Mr. Justice K.G. Balakrishnan, held that the appellant-husband had no such case that `saptapadi' was an essential ceremony for a valid marriage as per the ``personal law'' applicable.

Therefore, there was a ``valid marriage'' (second marriage) on June 18, 1984 between the appellant and second accused (a woman) in view of Section 7-A of the Hindu Marriage Act - which was introduced by the Tamil Nadu Amendment Act, 1967 in the main 1955 Act (Central Act).

The bench found that it was proved that the appellant had committed the ``offence of bigamy'' under Section 494 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) as it (the second marriage) was done during the subsistence of his earlier marriage (with the respondent-complainant).

Dismissing an appeal from the appellant-husband against the High Court's verdict, the bench, which included Mr. Justice D.P. Mohapatra, observed that ``Section 7-A of the Act applies to any marriage between two Hindus solemnised in the presence of relatives, friends and other persons'' and ``the main thrust of this provision is that the presence of a priest is not necessary for the performance of a valid marriage'' and ``parties can enter into a marriage in the presence of relatives or friends or other persons and each party to the marriage should declare in the language understood by the parties that each takes other to be his wife or, as the case may be, her husband, and the marriage would be completed by a simple ceremony requiring the parties to the marriage to garland each other or put a ring on any finger of the other or tie a thali.''

``Any of these ceremonies, namely garlanding each other or putting a ring on any finger of the other or tying a thali would be sufficient to complete a valid marriage,'' the bench added.

The appellant married the respondent (first wife) on September 6, 1970. Three children were born from that wedlock.

The respondent alleged that the appellant started ill-treating her and on many occasions she was physically tortured.

Therefore, she (respondent) left her marital home and started staying with her parents. While so, the respondent came to know that the appellant had entered into a (second) marriage with another woman on June 18, 1984 and that the marriage was performed in a marriage hall in Tamil Nadu.

The respondent then filed a criminal complaint before the Metropolitan Magistrate (trial court) against the appellant for offence of ``bigamy''. The trial court held that an important ceremony, namely `saptapadi' had not been performed and therefore, the ``second marriage'' (of the appellant with the second accused) was not a valid marriage and no offence of ``bigamy'' was committed by the appellant.

The High Court, on an appeal from the respondent-first wife, reversed the trial court's decision and held that the parties were governed by Section 7-A of the Hindu Marriage Act and that there was a ``valid marriage'' between the appellant and the second accused and therefore, the appellant was guilty of the offence of ``bigamy''.

Balaji never allowed Meera to touch (forget about opening) any cardboard boxes which were sitting in
garage for the last three years. A Garage is for keeping the cars but he preferred to park car outside, but not to clean the trash in the garage. Meera was wondering, how come he is cleaning the snow daily from the
car in cold winter, but the garage is never getting cleaned to keep the car inside. It was a mystery to Meera.

When Balaji left trashy home, and the house was put on sale, buyers started coming for showings. Buyers were surprised to see some dirty portion of the house which was Balaji's legacy. Realtor requested Balaji to
clean or hire someone to clean the mess he left. Instead of cleaning by himself or hiring someone, Couch
potato Balaji told realtor that ," Meera obviously has my permission to organize the house, keep it clean
and sanitary, and make it presentable at all times. That is the only way to avoid foreclosure and for her
and me to not owe more to the banks".

Meera got the permission for cleaning the house and throw the trash from the garage which was sitting
for last three years. Meera hired a cleaning lady. When the clean up started, the cleaning lady realized that
this junk is so filthy and trashed things quickly except for a few boxes. The Cleaning lady was surprised and very shy, when she approached Meera and asked if she should throw those boxes? Meera was wondering about her question and the contents inside. 
She found Balaji's hidden treasury..top two magazines were "Tennis magazines" and underneath were pornographic magazines "Playboy" and "Penthouse" magazines collected for many many years.......

Balaji attempted several court cases to evict Meera out of the house, though the house is owned by both. When court ordered Balaji to evict the house, Balaji could not tolerate that. When Meera had exclusive possession of the house, the raging Balaji appealed again and again (5 times) begging the court for exclusive possession of the house. He filed false allegations against Meera in the court, saying that she was blocking house and not giving access to the realtor for showing.

The Realtor provided the list of people who accessed the house and proved him wrong. The Filthy Balaji left the house trashy on May 22 and making absurd acquisitions of Meera, not maintaining the property well.
Trashy rooms left behind as a Legacy by Balaji

Enjoy pictures before and after presented to the court.

Frustrated Balaji came up with the Devil's thought, if the court doesn't allow me to live in the house then Meera too should not be allowed to live there either. He fought to get an court order to keep Meera out of the house.

Finally, the court ordered Meera to vacate the house by 1st March and the house should be empty and not in possession of anyone. The empty house will run down, buyers will start suspecting, utilities will be disconnected and the abandoned house will be for sale for a long.

Balajis' first wife Leena told Meera that the jerk Balaji will fight till death till he gets what he wants. She told how he fought for getting full child custody for 12 years, and finally obtained the full custody by manipulating the two children. She decided to stay away from the Devil's mind and not to contest more. She assumed that the matured kids would understand their liar Dad in future.

Balaji had attempted to kill Meera by contaminating her car fuel battery and brakes. Luckily, Meera escaped this trap.

Balaji is expected to file few more motion to get exclusive possession of the house but doesn't want to transfer the title/mortgage solely on his name.

Balaji is restless till he gets exclusive possession of the house...
