THIS CIVIL PETITION COMING ON FOR ADMISSION
THIS DAY, THE COURT MADE THE FOLLOWING:-

ORDER

The petitioner is before this Court under Section

24 of Code of Civil Procedure, 1908, seeking transfer of

M.C.No.39/2015 pending on the file of Principal Senior

Civil Judge at Bidar, to the Family Court at Bengaluru.

2. Heard the learned counsel for the petitioner. None

appeared for the respondent on 3.12.2018 as well as

today.

3. The learned counsel for the petitioner submits

that the petitioner and the respondent’s marriage was

solemnized on 10.10.200. From the wedlock they have

a male child, who is now studying in 3rd standard at

Bengaluru. It is submitted that the petitioner is

working at Bengaluru and it would be difficult for her to

travel from Bengaluru to Bidar to attend M.C. case filed

by the respondent, along with her minor child. The
3

respondent filed M.C.No.39/2015 before the Principal

Senior Civil Judge at Bidar under Section 10 (1) of

Indian Divorce Act, 1869, seeking decree of divorce.

The respondent – husband has filed objection

contending that the petitioner has filed a case under

Section 498A of IPC and under Protection of Women

from Domestic Violence, Act 2005, which are pending at

Bengaluru. At paragraphs 9 and 10 of the statement of

objections, it is stated by the respondent – husband

that the respondent is likely to withdraw the

M.C.No.39/2015 pending on the file of Principal Senior

Civil Judge at Bidar.

4. From the petition averments and from the

objections of the respondent it is clear that the cases

filed under Section 498A of IPC and also the case filed

under Dowry Prohibition Act is pending at Bangalore.

Further it is seen that the child is with the petitioner-

wife, who is studying in 3rd standard at Bengaluru. In a

case of this nature, the Court shall have to see the
4

convenience of the parties. The respondent has filed

M.C. case in the Family Court at Bidar. It would be

difficult for the petitioner-wife to travel along with the

child, who is studying at Bangalore to attend the case at

Bidar.

5. Therefore, I am of the view, that M.C.No.39/2015

pending on the file of Principal Senior Civil Judge at

Bidar, be transferred to the Family Court at Bengaluru.

Hence the following :-

ORDER

i. The petition is allowed.

ii. M.C.No.39/2015 pending on the file of the
Principal Senior Civil Judge at Bidar, is
withdrawn and transferred to the Family
Court, Bengaluru, for disposal in accordance
with law.
