Marriage Act, seeking restitution of conjugal rights with petitioner,

before District Court, Nagaur. The petitioner is presently residing

at Pali and it is very difficult for her to appear in the District court

at Nagaur to defend in the case filed by the respondent on each

every date of hearing. The petitioner has no sufficient means and

her financial difficulty also prevents her from proper prosecution in

the proceedings pending at Nagaur. On these averments, it is

prayed that case No.49/2016 pending before Additional District

Judge, Nagaur may be transferred to the Family Court, Pali.

Notices were issued to the respondent, which were duly

served on the respondent. Even after service, no one appeared for

the respondent. Heard learned counsel for the petitioner.

On account of harassment and cruelty for demand of dowry,

the petitioner was forced to leave her matrimonial home and

presently she is living with her parents at Pali. A complaint for

offence under secs.498A, 406 323 IPC was also lodged by her

against the respondent and the criminal case is pending before

competent court at Pali. Her application filed under sec.125 CrPC

is also pending against the respondent before the Family Court,

Pali. The petitioner is a young, uneducated lady and has no

sufficient independent source of income and it is very difficult

for her to travel all alone to contest the case filed by the

respondent under sec.9 of the Hindu Marriage Act at Nagaur.

considering the hardship of the applicant lady, in view of the ratio

laid down by Hon’ble Supreme Court in Vaishali Shridhar Jagtap

v. Shridhar Vishwanath Jagtap reported in 2016 (4) WLN

237 (SC), it is a fit case to be transferred.

Accordingly, this Transfer Application is allowed and the Civil

Case No.49/2016 (Narendra v. Smt Saroj Devi), filed by the

respondent for restitution of conjugal rights under sec.9 of the

Hindu Marriage Act, pending before Additional District Judge,
