Yes, assuming you are Hindus, You can file for divorce under section 13 of the Hindu Marriage Act. One option available to you is filing for divorce by mutual consent, if your wife also agrees to the divorce.

Kindly let me know which cast you belong? After knowing your cast and religion, I will be able to advise you as per the concerned personal laws. If you belong to few exempted cast than personal laws would not apply on you.
