Divorce goes hi-tech: A Pune court skypes divorce, first of its kind



New Delhi: An Indian Court has made divorce hi-tech. A Pune court skypes divorce, the first of its kind in an Indian court. This was not that astonishing though, as triple talaq on WhatsApp, Skype and Twitter have been reported with its own share of criticism.

The couple had filed their divorce petition by mutual consent under Section 13B of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, before VS Malkanpatte-Reddy, civil judge of the senior division, on August 12, 2016.

For the first time in the history of family matter hearings in civil court the couple sought divorce through Skype.

While the husband flew down from Singapore, wife could not make it due to personal reasons. And the court did what it had never done before, instead of giving a date they allowed the woman to present her side of the story on Skype.

The young couple studied at the same college and fell in love. They got  job in the same city, Pune, in two different companies. Later on they got a good career jump of working on foreign shores. While the boy got a job in Singapore, girl got a good career opportunity in London. Seeing the practical problems, the couple decided to separate and mutually applied for divorce.
