A deserted spouse can use the restitution of conjugal rights against the other party. By an official order, the guilty spouse can be ordered to live together with an aggrieved spouse. It is a process in the religious courts and processing in the court for divorce and matrimonial reasons. It is one of the actions relating to marriage, over which the Christian courts formerly had jurisdiction.
It provides specific legal rights to each party. It states that both the husband and the wife at any point, in time if any of the parties failed or refused to perform his or her duties binding upon him or her without giving any reasonable excuse then, the aggrieved party can seek legal support from the respective district court under the provision of restitution of conjugal rights. Because of this reason, it is also considered a matrimonial remedy.
According to Section 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 - when both the husband or the wife, without proper reason, withdrew from the society of the other. The aggrieved party may execute, by petition to the district court, for restitution of conjugal rights. On being satisfied with the efficiency of the statements made in such petition and that there is no proper ground, the court may declare restitution of conjugal rights respectively.
Conjugal rights mean the right to stay together. The right of sexual intercourse between the husband and the wife. This is considered as the conjugal rights. The Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 Section 9 says if either the husband or the wife, without a solid explanation, withdraw from the society of the other. The aggrieved party may request the court for restitution of conjugal rights.
The petition for the Restitution of Conjugal Rights can be filed by either party- either by husband or wife.
Following are the valid points on which the court passes the order of restitution of conjugal rights:
Here are some valid points on which, the court cannot grant the restitution of conjugal rights:
Under Section 9, of the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, if a consent decree for the restitution of conjugal rights is passed, it will not be a nullity. If it is not challenged in an appeal or by way of other solutions available under the law and becomes final. Such an order cannot be ignored; however, if someone does so, it can form a valid ground of divorce proceedings under section 13 (1A) of the Hindu Marriage Act 1955.
A legal notice under section 9 of the Hindu Marriage Act asks a spouse who has left the other without any logical excuse, to return. If you don’t get the legal notice about the marriage issues under section 9, then the aggrieved party can request the court for restitution of conjugal rights.
If the husband either leaves a wife or ignores to make his conjugal obligations without any proper reason, then the wife can demand restitution of conjugal rights. Additionally, a husband can apply for restitution of conjugal rights. But the court can deny granting an order of restitution of conjugal rights for the below reasons:
Each party to the marriage may give a petition on any of the grounds declared in the requirements for divorce, praying for an order of judicial separation. A judicial separation is a legitimate way to stay separate from the husband or wife, without getting a judgment of divorce.
It also assists in cases to justify a petition for restitution of conjugal rights. A judicially separated spouse cannot be given a purpose to hold a spouse simply living separately, and who has not received a decree for judicial separation.
There has been no resumption of cohabitation (the state of living together) among the parties to the wedding for one year or upwards, after the passing of the decree for judicial separation, it shall be a ground for separation.
What the aggrieved party can do?

Who can file restitution of conjugal rights?
It declares that if one of the spouses leaves the other without any logical cause, the aggrieved party has a legal power to register a petition in the marital court of restitution of conjugal rights.
