    Earlier section 497 of the Indian penal code declared Adultery as an offense however on the date of 27th September 2018 a constitution bench of the supreme court comprising of the then CJI Dipak Misra, Justice RF Nariman, Justice DY Chandrachud, Justice Indu Malhotra and Justice AM Khanwilkar pronounced the verdict by which it was decriminalized. Adultery is not penalized anymore but still is a ground for divorce.

    Dear Sir,
    The Supreme Court deleted Section 497 of IPC from statute but the aggrieved husband can get either take shelter under 498 IPC or file a divorce on such ground.
