Wife gets 50% of husbands share but how?

I see that there has been a lot of discussions on this topic that a bill is proposed that if passed then will cut husbands property in half if divorced. I started searching for it and people talk about Marriage Amendment Bill 2010. However, I see that the bill has 9 pages and nowhere I found any reference in the bill that says that the respondent wife at the time of divorce would get 50% of share from husband's property. Can someboyd exactly point out how this is derived cause I do not have a clue how to understand it.

Your help in this is highly appreciated.

This is proposed bill and not yet cleared and it is not likely to be enacted soon as there would be long debate againt it too. It may take years

Mahesh ji,


1. The pages you are looking at are old.

2. Lately cabinet has approved to give half share in residential property.

3. This amendment is still 1 month baby in the womb, nobody knows if it’s gonna be boy or a gal.

4. Chances of miscarriage and MTP too can’t be denied. ;)

Not likely such a bill will get passed in this format.  Imagine the social havoc it will create in the upper class citizens.  The institution of marriage will be killed
