The following article indicates that India has chosen to leave questions of personal status law (family law) to be determined by "personal law boards". http://www.thesouthasian.org/archives/2005/indian_muslims_dont_need_law_b.html In other words, Indian Muslims continue to enjoy a large measure of autonomy in family law matters, subject to the umbrella oversight of the Indian state. There do not appear to be any Civil Code provisions dealing specifically with Muslim law. (There are provisions for Hindus.)
