This is the best time for all those who think that DV Act is misused to start writing their views, thoughts, suggestions and recommendations to the Government…

NFHS as usual has already written to the WCD its views and demands….Please see the below link…

Why writing to the government is important???

Writing to the Government is very important else they will never come to know about the misuse. Letters received by the Government is the bench mark for them before they start any process of law amendment…

Please see the below link…..

Where the minister says that….” The Minister said a large number of complaints and representations alleging misuse of the Act had been received”

It is clear that once they receive large number of complaints then they start the process of law amendment.

How to write to Government?

It is simpler than you thought…You can have a look at the NFHS Memo above. You necessarily need not write so many points. All you can do is write 2 or 3 pages with….

* Your experience…

* How it is misused…

* What changes you want…

Etc…

Your letter to government can have demands e.g.

* Remove protection officer in DV Act…He is always biased to Wife…

* No interim maintenance till allegations are proved…

* Dont accept DV Petition if already HMA25/CrPC 125 is pending…

* There should be a limit on the upper maintenance…

*

*

As usual kindly don’t reply to mails saying “this demand is not correct”…”That demand is correct”…”This is what we should demand”…”that we should not demand”!!

Because demanding in the yahoo group is not going to change the law…

Remember….Each letter sent to the Government matters…

I have written to Government already…Had YOU?
