In India where almost half of the population are women, they have always been ill-treated and deprived of their right to life and personal liberty as provided under the constitution of India. Women are always considered as a physically and emotionally weaker than the males, whereas at present women have proved themselves in almost every field of life affirming that they are no less than men due to their hard work whether at home or working places. Behind closed doors of homes all across our country, people are being tortured, beaten and killed. It is happening in rural areas, towns, cities and in metropolitans as well. It is crossing all social classes, genders, racial lines and age groups. It is becoming a legacy being passed on from one generation to another. But offences against women which reflects the pathetic reality that women are just not safe and secure anywhere. According to a latest report prepared by India’s National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), a crime has been recorded against women in every three minutes in India. Every 60 minutes, two women are raped in this country. Every six hours, a young married woman is found beaten to death, burnt or driven to suicide.

Violence against women is not a new phenomenon. Women have to bear the burns of domestic, public, physical as well as emotional and mental violence against them, which affects her status in the society at the larger extent. The statistics of increasing crimes against women is shocking, where women are subjected to violence attacks i.e. foeticide, infanticide, medical neglect, child marriages, bride burning, sexual abuse of girl child, forced marriages, rapes, prostitution, sexual harassment at home as well as work places etc. In all the above cases women is considered as aggrieved person.

The term used to describe this exploding problem of violence within our homes is ‘Domestic Violence’. This violence is towards someone who we are in a relationship with, be it a wife, husband, son, daughter, mother, father, grandparent or any other family member. It can be a male’s or a female’s atrocities towards another male or a female. Anyone can be a victim and a victimizer. This violence has a tendency to explode in various forms such as physical, sexual or emotional. ‘Domestic Violence’ includes harms or injuries which endangers women’s health, safety, life, limb or well being, whether mental or physical. It may also be through physical, sexual, verbal, emotional and economic abuse. According to ‘United Nation Population Fund Report’, around two-third of married Indian women are victims of Domestic Violence attacks and as many as 70 per cent of married women in India between the age of 15 and 49 are victims of beating, rape or forced sex. In India, more than 55 percent of the women suffer from Domestic Violence, especially in the states of Bihar, U.P., M.P. and other northern states.

What amounts to domestic violence against women? -Domestic Violence undoubtedly a human right issue where it is very important to know what actually leads to act of domestic violence. The most common causes for women stalking and battering include:- exploitation of women for demanding more dowry, discrimination of women, alienation of women’s self acquired property fraudulently, torture by husband and in-laws of the husband, arguing with the partner, refusing to have sex with the partner, neglecting children, going out of home without telling the partner, not cooking properly or on time, indulging in extra marital affairs, not looking after in-laws, cruelty by husband or in-laws mentally or physically, abusing & insulting by using vulgar language, sexual harassment, molestation, immoral traffic, rape, sodomy and all other inhuman acts. In all above stated causes women are subjected to torture and will be considered as the aggrieved person. Usually violence takes place due to lack of understandings between the couple as well as in the family.

The consequences of domestic violence attack on women, which will affect victim as well as family of the victim. Domestic Violence affects women’s productivity in all forms of life i.e. assaulted women will always get agonized and emotionally disturbed and remain quite after occurrence of the torment. The suicide case of such victimized women is also a deadly consequence and the number of such cases is increasing day by day. A working Indian woman may lose her efficiency in work or drop out from work in some cases. Domestic Violence may affect the life of children at the larger extent because child will be having greater attachment with her mother and once the mother’s grief and sufferings revealed then child may turn silent, reserved and express solace to the mother. In some of the cases violence will lead to maintain distance from the partner whereby sexual life gets affected adversely. Sometimes marriage life will become a burden to the spouse and one of the spouses will opt out for divorce or separation which again affects life of the children.

In a case where wife is beaten up by her husband doesn’t amount to domestic violence unless a sufficient reason of violation of right to life is shown. In another case where the women just not given food, it amounts to domestic violence if it is intended to achieve the ultimate purpose of necking her out of the benefits of shared household.

To prevent violence against women and to protect the rights of aggrieved women, the legislation ‘The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005’ was passed by the parliament. According to this act every women who have been deprived of their right to life by the act of husband or relatives of the husband, can file a complaint to the protection officer, police officer or magistrate in the form of ‘Domestic Incident Report’ (Similar to FIR). Complaint can be filed by the victim /aggrieved person or relatives, it will be considered as the prima-facie evidence of the offence. Every ‘Domestic Incident Report’ has to be prepared by the Protection Officer which will assist in the further investigation of the incidence. The protection officer will pass certain orders i.e. protection of the women, custody of respondent and order of monetary relief to the victim.

The Government of India should come out with some more stringent laws to protect the rights of women who are victims of violence of any kind occurring within the family, so that it will work as the preventive measure to eradicate the crime. A strict law to be passed to punish those women who are filing a false compliant against husband or relatives by misusing of Domestic Violence Act so that there will be fair justice to all.

    My daughter married to H1B Visa holder, who is working in USA in Feb 2014. After marriage she went to USA along with husband. He started abusing her for dowry and beaten her cruelly in USA where she does not have any help from anybody. Nor she reported about the domestic violence to us. She came back to India in Jan 2015 and also her husband came after 15 days. At that time, she revealed to us the domestic violence taken place in USA.
    When asked about this, he replies that she is not obeying him and makes provocative arguements for which he punished her with beatings with hands, legs, chappals and even next step will be beating with rods.
    Now, kindly advise – whether she can file a complaint against him for Domestic Violence in USA Police Station by Post. Is there any maximum period in which she has to file DV complaint. He deserted her since 5 months due to which she is financially struggling for maintenance. Can she claim interim maintenance since he deserted her ? She does not want to live with him and wants her jewellery back along with her belongings and want to settle the matter after finalising alimony. What is to be done.

    Kindly send your suggestion to my mail, for which I shall be very thankful. Also, for filing DV in India, is there any maximum period within which it is to be filed ? Suggest good lawyers at Chennai who can handle this issue.

    A colleague of mine is subject to tremendous mental torture by her husband as well as her own parents and family to shift to Saudi Arabia against her wishes. This was actually a forced marriage and she is trapped in this. She is already seeing a psychologist and is ready to give some time to this marriage before calling it off or filing for a divorce but her husband and parents are torturing her daily to give in. What legal remedy can she adopt so that this torture stops and she gets time to think over this marriage and take it at her own pace please?

    She is not contemplating divorce at the moment but this pressure is driving her crazy and she is losing her mental peace and mental balance. Please provide a remedy to stop this daily torture in its roots!!!

      She must say to them regarding her state of mind to be in the condition for any decision.if the marriage us forced in her then she must not give a chance to this bulls**t relationship coz the grudges will remain forever n wont make her happy internally.

    Excellent article! I often come across news on domestic violence in India and the increasing trend of children abandoning elderly parents. Today, I was disturbed to see my own relatives turning evil because of their greed for money. My grandmother was befooled to sign major portion of the property in my aunt’s name and now she is being troubled and tortured to leave the house as she has no more money. When I asked my granny to take help of law, she rejected it saying she doesnot want to take her own daughter to court.
    My parents are bringing her to our home but it would be painful for her to leave the house in which she spent her whole life and wished to peacefully die.

    I have never felt so helpless before.

    Yes, Its very bad sound though its true no one can never stop domestic violence. Domestic violence not only happening with those people who didn’t know about these, but also happened by them who knew about these. Most of the people who are against the domestic violence, say many things in front of the society but inside their home they do the same things with their family members. I know women can never get their rights because women are their first enemy. when one women torturing another women never try to stop that. This is the realty.

    A friend of mine is contemplating suicide due to her forced marriage and pressure from both her family and inlaws along with the husband. She has been to 2 counselors and both have adviced seperation after 6 months but the family is not willing to understand and forcing her mentally to adjust. She is literally under house arrest and they are not permitting her to work nor go out until she agrees to adjust.

    In such a scenario as a 3rd party can I do something legally to ensure she does not take this extreme step?

    I took her to a couple of NGOs too who are willing to help her out but she has lost that willingness and courage to act, how can I save her life legally, please advice!

    my father has govt job and earned a lot til date. since childhood, I saw my father abusing my mom and bitting her all the time. My mom sufferered because of children. She has sufferred almost 35 years. One of the reason for her being so sufferred by my father was male child. Because of which, she had to under go through several abortions forced by my father. However by god’s grace, she gave birth to a male child. Thenafter, he never changed and continued to do same thing.
    Now being in this old age, my father still torture my mom every now and then.
    He has stopped giving a single penny to the family. No responsibilty towards the family.
    He want to take Voulantry retirement and take all the money and want to give his
    bhabhi, with whom he has affair all these years.

    My mom coudn’t do anything coz she was uneducated. But dont want my father to continue all these crib at this stage.

    He must learn the lesson that his wife is not the factory of producing babies, she is better half in each and every share.

    My wants that at least she could get some of the money of his VRS, so that she can get help to marry her children, as we are still not settled.

    I am a victim of physical abuse as well by my husband and his family members. Though I’ve been living in US with my husband for the past 10 years and have been working, I couldn’t gather enough courage to file any police report…mostly I am scared of the consequences and negative impact on the kids.
    Unfortunately my own parents are pretty orthodox and they think that I should still try hard to please them and handle the situation rather than thinking abut separation.
    Is there any way Indian laws can help me here even though I live in US presently? I am stil an Indian citizen and got married in India.

      Hello Mr. Muthu Swamy. Do not worry. It is very clear from your explanation that your sisters husband has subjected her to physical and mental cruelty. The law is strongly on your side. My advice is-

      1. For next 1 month, collect as much evidence as possible of your sisters husband’s cruelty. You can do this by secretly taking a video of him harassing your sister and your family. Collect as much evidence as possible.

      2. After collecting strong evidence, contact a good lawyer and file for divorce.

      3. Based on the evidence, divorce will be easily granted to your sister. Moreover, the court will order your sisters husband to pay your sister and her children maintenance for the rest of your sisters life and until the children become major.

      Regards.

    Hi,

    I am in the lookout for a channel which can highlight the matter in their channel regarding my old grandmother.Being from a rich family where she hails from W.Godavari now being in a disastrous status with helpless in our home left alone by thier sons.One is a crorepati living at ECIL and another one in the same village well settled. Theya are looking for the mother to die asap to take the share of the existing property which is loacted at Kopparu near Narsapuram W.Godavri where she is presently located.The property worth 20 lakhs.

    My only concern is being so rich and lead a beautiful life ,now she is in difficulty since from 6 years in living didn’t have money to survive and what ever the expenses which she used to get from the property being a well cultivated land is taken by two sons. She reported that in the local police station as well but the locals are not supporting and the influence was created by this two sons on the police as well as on the local big peoples.I just want to bring this attention to the villagers as wellas to the community so that it can make or do a justice to my grandmother and infact it would be moral lesson for the others as well.

    I am in the look out for a complaint aswell but don’t know whom to report so that I can ask my grandmother to make complaint directly to the required authorities so that she can get justice and the concerned people are punished.Now she is finding difficulty to buy the medicines this is one of the example itself. Please kindly pay attention to this matter and if given opportunity more details can be provided with the picturees of the sons and daughters of er family who evere involved in totally ruining her herlife in this last stage for the money and the property.

    I just want to know if I am abused thru domestic violence by my husband whom should I complain. Also I would like to mention that my husband is a government servant he servers as a UDC in Diu Court. He is having an extra martial affair, and due to this he is touring me everyday. He is also denying having any extra marital affairs, but I know because all his staffs have told me. And many people around the locality are aware of his affairs. This have put lot of impact and effect on my two sons, he also does not allow my sons to study, as he is a alcoholic, in the evening when he comes up to bit me and my children he makes sure that we do not run away from the house, so in that case we are lock and he pulls me by my hair and holds my two children and kicks them, I have complained to the police here in Diu, but since he works in the court, all /most of the policemen in duty have been instructed by him not to entertain my complaints. Two years back also the same incident happened and I ran to my mother’s house, she is based in Daman, then he came to take me and children back, but the condition in my house is the same. He has not changed at all and I am alone since nobody wants to support me, because of his rude manner and some because he helps people in court work. Kindly let me know whom and which department should I complain. This has passed more than 6-7 years that I and my children’s are suffering and nobody to help me. thanks alot

    To end violence against women we need to do the following things. Investigating officers should do it with a sense of justice and dedication and go beyond the parameters of influences of all types. The evidences collected should be used to find ways of successful conviction that acquittal. Here, the legal profession has to get into the realms of a divine profession. The process of the judiciary has to be fast and instantaneous. Once convicted, the verdict has to be implemented fast. But in India, I feel that nothing of this will happen as we are in a system, were the Dons in politics and bureaucracy are corrupt elements, supportive to crime and injustice, which is the main stay for al of them. Our country needs a liberation from all this. A liberation struggle from the masses. The day the masses start to stone the corrupt in public and at their homes and offices, and the day this struggle ends possitively, by placing patriotic men in power, that will be the only day we will experience a start to change for the better. The present system is like a devil in our midst, that will never quit by itself. It has to be forced out. Rise India, Rise, let us start the liberation to save this land and our women and girl children from the clutches of devils in human form. JAI HIND.

    he use to sexually harass me and blackmail me every day and night that if i dont sleep with him then he would not marry me and i had to sleep with him thinking of my family situation. one day when i could not take the torture, i commited sucide by having 30 sleeping pills which did not take my life but instead i was admitted to hospital and survived.
    but still it he did not stop harrasing me. i told my mother of what ever happened and the answer she gave me was”he is ur future husband, so he has all the rights on you, listen to what ever he says, think of your younger sister as well, now if u dont marry him after having S-x then how would the society will treat us…..”
    finally at the age of 18, i got married to him. Am already half died here and i continued to do all he says, sacrifised my life and dreams for my family. since my mother only took care of my husband fromt he childhood, she has more love and care for him.
    From my childhood am blamed by my mother and aunt that coz of my birth,my mother had to face many troubles in her life. and this thing did not come into her mind unless a saint/muni who told her that your elder daughter is trouble some for you through out your life as her kundali is not good.
    since then she sgtarted mentally torturing me for what ever bad happens at home. for ex…my father passed away and my sis was adopted by my uncle so she blamed me that i was the reason for my fathers death and i seperated my sis from my mother.
    had been through hell in my life.its so painful life. my husband beats me, keep quaralling and my mother blames me for everything rather giving some kind of support to me.

    Am currently an employee for MNC in contract having one Baby girl of 5 yrs. i give 90% of my salary to my mother as am responsible to take care of her and my sis me being eldest daughter.and i feel there no security for me as even today my husband bet me and injured my left eye and my mother never spoke anything instead she blamed me that its my fault.

    The above is just a point one percent of my life history. Please can some one support me and my daughter lead a peaceful life?

    It really hurts a lot to see that in the Nation which is advancing in every field of life cannot safeguard women and mke them feel that they are human beings and in India these blogs, forums, pages on facebook would never help any single female in India.

      he will come back to you. I have seen another indian man trapped by a thai dancer.
      His wife was intelligent and she made it a point not to break relations ,but lived seperately with parents.Since she did not fight too much the man did pay visits to the kids . after 2 years the man realized his mistake .but it was too late .but they mend the marriage and got back after 5 years and now the guy is much less adventurus

    This case was not filed for obvious reasons:
    To The Station Officer in Charge, Qdy Police Station
    Sub: A case of ‘Excess against women’ and ‘domicile cruelty against women’
    Cheekilote Vipinachandran (a retired Hindi teacher) was physically removed in a Police Van from Alikandi House, Poilkav, a scene of abuse, ‘rowdysm’ and maltreatment to elderly woman, after ten pm on Tuesday, March 19, 2013. This was the final day of the local (Poilkav) Temple Festival.
    This incident occurred in front of the Grand Parental house (Alikandi) of the accused, which is pending partition. Vipinachandran’s aunt (Mother’s youngest sister) Devaki Amma (70+) a widow, is living in Alikandi House, whose two daughters are married. Vipinachandran’s mother has a share in the undivided house-building and talks for an amicable partition are on an advanced stage.
    C Vipinachandran Nair is a liquor-addict over two decades, and often visits the above house and threatens and showers abuses over the lady and daughters who are literally terrified and frightened to make a complaint. Moreover, they fear that filing a complaint will worsen the progress of partition.
    The physically removal of Vipinachandran in a Police van after ten pm on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 was true and was soon after the latest cruel, merciless, and deliberately and remorselessly causing pain or anguish to the old widow, an incident of ‘Excess against women’ and ‘domicile cruelty against women’, which will re-occur frequently if it is not prevented early.
    The Officer-in-charge of Quilandi Police may kindly call C Vipinachandran, and make him sign a promise not to visit Alikandi House, and threaten Devaki Amma, and also find an amicable settlement for the partition of the property, with-out any bias and also inform the dire and natural consequences on re-occurrence of similar incidents.
    I repeat to mention that my widowed sister Alikandi Devaki Amma and daughters are literally terrified and frightened to make a complaint. Moreover, they fear that filing a complaint will worsen the progress of the impending amicable partition of the house property.
    This request in right earnest is filed by A. Madhavan Nair (68), youngest brother of Devaki Amma, now living a retired life in Kalyani House, No.86, Periyar Gardens, Thottakkattukara, Aluva, Ernakulam District.

    We are women. how we can say that we needed a help for our mental,social, spiritual and physical development? we have lots of inner strength.Why we are saying that “Hame Azadi chahiye.” First update your knowledge. Participate in office , social & family matters. workout on work life balance & time management & Fitness. Must know what is Women Empowerment.If you have a time go for higher studies or training irrespective of age. All men / their families are not bad. Few of them are having criminal minds due to some circumstances.We can win them with our love & affection

    If we have this kind of voilance at home then to whom we should contact for this. Any toll free no which is available for 24X7. Becuase all the NGO’s and women cell are working only 9 to 6 and weekend is off. I mean what kind of Govt we do have who do not have enought security for womens nor any of the no which is available for 24X365 for the help except police. And delhi ki police to itni mahan hai ki saara kaam hone ke bhi 1hr ke baad aati hai just for formality nothing else.

    After reading so much about domestic violence against women and young girls. We are interested in opening a hostel in India where alleged victims can stay in safe, clean, supported accommodations until such time they are confident to return within the community. Has anyone set this type of accommodations in India I would love to hear from you – please e-mail me or call, I’ll be happy to call you back. Regards

    I suggest all of indians should stop marrying till laws of 498A and Dv act made must be gender neutral its india only country where one can see there is corruption right from start to end.In all such laws dont control corruption but enhance corruption in all ways. So how can one expect the country to move ahead as America..?..Definitely it is going to lag 10 years behind if corruption occurs.And such law makers only give rise to corruption..Its much a bad luck to get born in india under such circumstances where laws are gender-biased..So who is going to care for progress of India?..Ultimately every male is going to foreign countries where he will be respected and have more proper democracy so finally with his progress- that country is going to move ahead.. Anna-Hazare really did great task, still he is opposed by many of those who dont want progress in country..
