Decree under Hindu Marriage Act and decree under Code of Civil Procedure are not same
Decree under the Hindu Marriage Act and decree under Code of Civil Procedure are not of the same nature and character. A decree passed under section 10 of the Hindu Marriage Act may be rescinded by the Trial Court itself “on the application by the petition of either party on being satisfied of the truth of the statement made in petition if it consider just and reasonable to do so”.
