ORAL ORDER

1. Heard the learned Advocate for the petitioners.

It is submitted that the impugned proceedings initiated under section 12 of the Protection of Women against Domestic Violence Act, 2005 (for short, “the Act”) are of incidence which took place in the year 1991 and thereafter the petitioners and respondent No.2 stayed separately. The Act of 2005 has no retrospective operation and prima facie, according to the learned Advocate for the petitioners, the impugned proceedings deserves to be quashed and set aside.

2. Having considered the above aspects, issue NOTICE returnable on 11th March, 2011. Meanwhile the impugned complaint of initiating the proceedings under section 12 of the Act shall remain stayed.

[ANANT S DAVE, J.]
