A matrimonial dispute cannot be the reason to revoke a person's passport, the court said

A matrimonial dispute cannot be the reason to revoke a person's passport without giving him any hearing, the Delhi High Court has said.

Justice Prathiba M Singh said that revocation of passport was a strong measure and it cannot be done without even hearing the person affected.

"A matrimonial case can't stop his passport forever. It is only a matrimonial dispute. Why don't you restore his passport," the court said, adding "it is too unfair what you (Centre) people are doing. Why are you taking sides?"

The observations by the court came on a man's plea seeking setting aside of a May 2020 order upholding the revocation of his passport.

The Centre contended that once a passport is revoked it cannot be restored and the petitioner would have to apply afresh for a new one.
