On account of Balveer Singh v. Harjeet Kaur (Uttarakhand High Court ) 22 June 2017, the Court  held that the standard res judicata isn’t material on the resulting suit under Section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act. The Appellant had archived a solicitation under Section 13-A of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 searching for a dissolution of the marriage between the parties.
