The Bombay High Court said a talaqnama issued by a qazi was a valid document nullifying a marriage and in that case a court decree is not required and that she can marry under the Special Marriage Act without changing her religion. but in the latest judgement from The bench of The Madras High Court on Jan 11, 2017, which referred to Section 4 of The Kazis Act, 1880, held that the office of the kazi does not confer on the person any judicial or administrative power.
