Whether your wife stayed with u in Canada? If not, then the Court in Canada may have faltered in granting u divorce. The court at Chandigarh has still the jurisdiction to entertain the petition since she has not stayed with u in canada. Although, court in India is bound by the judgement of any competent court of jurisdiction. If the canadian court has rightly exercised its jurisdiction, than it will be binding on Indian Court and petition for RCR ill not sustain. Let me chech the jurisdiction.
