Supreme Court rejects PIL seeking to frame rule for live-in relationship

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a PIL seeking to frame rules for the registration of live-in relationships. A constitutional bench of Justices DY Chandrachud, PS Narasimha, and Justice JB Pardiwala asked the counsel for petitioner Mamta Rani whether she wanted to increase the security of these people or she wanted them not to be in a live-in relationship.

In response, the counsel said that the petitioner wanted registration of these relations to enhance the social security of the people living in live-in.

The bench said, what does the registration of live-in relationships have to do with the Centre? What a silly idea is this! Now the time has come that the court should start imposing penalties on those who file such PILs. It is rejected.

Rani had filed a PIL in the Supreme Court urging it to direct the Center to frame rules for the registration of live-in relationships. The petition cited an increase in crimes such as rape and murder in such relationships. Citing the murder of Shraddha Walker allegedly by her live-in partner Aftab Amin Poonawalla, the petition urged for framing of rules and guidelines for the registration of such relationships.

The PIL said registration of live-in relationships would provide accurate information about each other to the people in such relationships and also to the government about their marital status, criminal history, and other relevant details.

The petition, filed by advocate Mamta Rani, said that apart from the increase in crimes like rape and murder, there has been a huge increase in false cases of rape being filed by women, who claim to be in a live-in relationship with the accused. and thus it becomes difficult for the courts to ascertain the truth.
