BANGALORE: National Family Harmony Society, an NGO engaged in promoting the cause of “family harmony” and “gender equality”, has alleged that there is misuse of Section 498A of Indian Penal Code that relates to dowry harassment.

Speaking to presspersons here on Saturday, P. Suresh of NFHS said that under this section, a complaint can be registered without going into its authenticity.

He said that following complaints of misuse of Section 498A, and also to protect the interests of innocent persons, the Rajya Sabha has formed a committee to look into the need for amendments to the section.

Consultation

Mr. Suresh said that before taking any decision on amending the section, the committee has decided to consult cross-sections of society and has invited applications.

Such applications can be sent in two copies in English or Hindi to Rakesh Naithani, Joint Director, Rajya Sabha Secretariat, Parliament House, Annexe, New Delhi – 110001.
