Mere Inconvenience of the wife to attend court proceedings is not a ground for transferring the Matrimonial proceedings: held the Calcutta HC

In an application filed under section 24 of the Code of civil procedure for the transfer of matrimonial proceedings, the Calcutta Court rejected it. The transfer application was to transfer the proceedings from Alipore to Birbhum Court on the following grounds:

  • That the wife has a 5 year old daughter residing with her at her parental home.
  • That the distance is 225 kms and around five hors
  • That there is another case pending at Birbhum court which is to be attended by her and the family members

The Court held that the mere inconvenience of the wife cannot be a ground to transfer the proceedings and accordingly dismissed.
