Hello, In india Bigamy is an offense against marriage and punishable under section 494 of Indian penal code, 1860. Bigamy is a non-cognizable offence. It is bailable and compoundable with the permission of court if the offence is committed under section 494 of the IPC. The PUNISHMENT for bigamy is IMPRISONMENT, which may extend till 7 years or FINE or BOTH. Hope this solves your query.

So if we even fight for bigamy years by investing time and money, opposite party will  escape by paying simple fine?
