RCR is a toothless tiger,

Rama chary Rachakonda (Secunderabad/Highcourt practice watsapp no.9989324294 )     18 April 2015

RCR it is petition US 9 of restitution of Conjugal rights in hindu marriage act if a spouse or partner does not obey his or her matrimonial duties then this petition can be filed well in your case if you have filed it before lodgeing of 498A then it will help you in getting anticipatory bail futher if petition is decided in your favour than wife's right to claim maintenance from also ceased as it the latest judgemnt delivered by the Hon' H.P High Coutr

and 498a is themost ferious weapon in the arsenal of wife your RCR will also help in trial it will not preclude you from arrest as the offence is cognizable and non bailable

Is RCR also applicable to muslim marriages..?

I collected this information from net, but please verify with your lawyer.

"Yes, the husband can file rcr and also the wife can file rcr against the husband. However the right is not absolute right. But, it is the fudamental Principles of all the matrimonial laws that, one spouse is entitled to the companionship and consortium and comfort of the other."

As it comes under section 9 of hma..so jz confused...

RCR is a weaker section. This can not be enforced on a party, although decree awarded.

A Muslim can indeed file suit for RCR but not under HMA but under Sharia Law.
