In what could very well turn out to be another keenly followed litigation, the Supreme Court today agreed to examine the vires of certain critical provisions of the Parsi Marriage and Divorce Act, 1936.

A Bench of Justices Kurian Joseph and R Banumathi today sought the assistance of one of the law officers in a challenge by one Naomi Sami Irani to the vires of sections 18, 19, 20, 21, 24, 30, 32(a), 46, 47(b) and 50 of the Parsi Marriage and Divorce Act, 1936.

Irani has challenged the provisions on the ground of violation of Articles 14 and 21.

The main thrust of her challenge is regarding how the Act perpetuates the jury system despite abolition of the same in India.
