Historic ruling! SC confirms to transfer Matrimonial disputes out of J&K

Supreme Court

In a historic judgement, the Supreme Court on Tuesday confirmed that it has the power to transfer cases from the jurisdiction of Jammu and Kashmir high court to any other court in India.

A bench headed by chief justice T.S. Thakur and justices Ibrahim Kalifulla, S.A. Bobde, A.K. Sikri and R. Banumathi held that there is no provision that bars the transfer of cases from Jammu and Kashmir high court to the rest of India.
“The provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure of India shall apply for transfer of cases from Jammu and Kashmir,” the bench said, reading out the verdict.
A copy of the verdict was not immediately made available.
The case, in which a petitioner wanted her matrimonial dispute transferred to the Delhi high court, was referred to a constitution bench by former chief justice R.M. Lodha.
To help ease access to justice, cases are usually transferred by the Supreme Court from one high court to another on a petitioner’s request.
