In a bizarre incident reported from Rajasthan, a man has accused his wife of ‘divorcing’ him for alleged ‘divorce’ quota in the Civil Services Exam (CSE) conducted by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) exam.

The man has lodged a written complaint against his wife with Kardhani police station in Jaipur. He has alleged that his wife took advantage of him and is demanding divorce to seek ‘divorce’ quota in the prestigious exam.

However, the woman’s family has denied the existence of any such ‘divorce’ quota in UPSC. On the other hand, she has filed a case of dowry and harassment against her husband.

In a report from ‘Voice for Men India’, the man, a photographer claimed he met his wife and maintained contact when she came to Jaipur for studies in 2016. The two eventually had a live-in relationship before finally getting engaged in 2021.

Soon after, the woman secured a government job through the Tribal Sub Plan (TSP) quota. However, her aim is to crack the prestigious UPSC exam and abruptly called off the engagement. She agreed to marry the woman only if he assisted her in cracking UPSC.

Consequently, the couple tied the knot after the man agreed to help her in her UPSC journey. Shockingly, she left her husband’s home and went to live separately. When the man tried to pursue her, she reminded him of his promise to help her with anything for the sake of UPSC.

When he visited her on their first wedding anniversary, she allegedly asked for a divorce and threatened to falsely implicate him in a case if he refused. Frustrated, he registered a case against his wife. However, the wife then accused him of dowry harassment and emotional manipulation in marriage.

Worth mentioning, the UPSC does not provide any specific thing as ‘divorce’ quota. The reservation is exclusively only for SC, ST, OBC, EWS and for persons with disabilities.
