    The statutory cooling off period of six months can be waived by the court on its own discretion and upon fulfillment of certain conditions as laid down by the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India in Amarjeet's case.

    No it is not mandatory now as the apex court has already passed a judgement stating that cooling off period is not mandatory and further it depends upon the facts and circumstances of the case
