There is no concept or provision for 'auto divorce'.
Irrespective of your years of separation without a decree of divorce granted by a court of law no marriage in India can be dissolved.
So you can either go for mutual divorce with your husband or if he is not willing for mutual divorce then file contested divorce.

The mutual divorce which is done on consent of both husband and wife takes 6 months of time,
I repeat there is nothing called ' auto divorrce'.

there is nothing called an Auto Divorce, if you are not in contact with your husband, then you must provide his permanent address, file the case seeking dissolution of the marriage on account of separation, if notice is duly served and he fails to appear then the court itself will grant you the separation.

Hello,
1) There is nothing called auto divorce available under law. You can either get divorce by mutual consent or you need to file a unilateral petition which can either be contested or ex parte.

2) If your husband is served summons from the court after you file for divorce and he does not turn up in the court for a number of occasions the court will be inclined to pass an ex parte order which is without him deliberately contesting. You need to know his current address and summons from court needs o get served on him. 

3)Alternately you can contact him and ask him to consent for a divorce mutually and file a joint petition and the divorce shall be decreed in 6 months.

4) To get an ex parte divorce the Respondent husband has to remain absent at least on 5 dates and then the court will consider the application to pass an ex parte order.

There is no such term called auto divorce.
You can apply for divorce on the grounds of desertion and no cohabitation for a period over two years. 
Te time taken cannot be predicted, if your husband decides to contest then it may drag on to more than two years too.

There is nothing such as auto divorce. If both of you are into a positive agreement to end your marriage then you may file for mutual divorce which will not take more than 6 months to come through, failing which the only remedy you have is to file for divorce unilaterally on the ground available to you under the law.
