Passports of 10 People under Indian government scrutiny Over NRI Marriage Disputes

The ministry for women and child development is setting up a website on which registrars from states across the country will have to upload details related to NRI marriages, in a move aimed at tacking the issue of NRI husbands abandoning or ill-treating their wives.

The integrated nodal agency (INA), an inter-ministerial body that is examining the issues faced by women trapped in bad marriages with Non-Resident Indian husbands, is reviewing requests of revocation of 10 passports made by the National Commission for Women. The committee has asked the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) to expedite action.
INA, which has begun investigations into the matter of absconding NRI husbands, chaired its first meeting on Jan. 18, which was headed by Maneka Gandhi, the Minister for Women and Child Development (WCD). The WCD ministry took to the social media to update people about its proceedings.
