I object to the protection given only to “Women” in DV Act (Protection of women from domestic violence act). The wordings are such that only “young married wife” can claim protection and relief. I strongly request to make DV Act “gender-neutral” by providing protection to MEN and his family as well.

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

I object that the DV Act (Protection of women from domestic violence act) has been designed only to provide protection to “married young women”. I sincerely request to increase the scope of the said Act beyond “young married women” to a cover a much larger section of victims irrespective of their age & gender.

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

The Protection of women from domestic violence Act is one of the most misused laws in our country apart from IPC 498[A]. There is an urgent need to introduce a punishment clause in the Protection of women from domestic violence Act in-line with section 387 to 389 of Indian Penal Code. A new clause should be introduced to protect the rights of the accused by sufficiently compensating the accused.

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

Live-in relationships are like organized prostitution. If we don’t discourage live-in relationships then we will end up promoting polygamy which is not permitted as per law. The parliament should clear this confusion. It cannot take different stands on the same issue of polygamy.  Therefore, I propose to remove live-in relationships from the context of DV Act (Protection of women from domestic violence act) OR make sections 494 & 497 of Indian Penal Code as Un-constitutional.

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

On mere application of common sense one can conclude that a woman who is claiming domestic violence by her husband cannot be presumed to live with him any longer. Therefore, I suggest/recommend introducing a new clause in DV Act (Protection of women from domestic violence act) for protecting the human rights of the accused husband.

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

The Protection officer’s role in DV Act (Protection of women from domestic violence act) is to only record the Domestic Incident report without any verification or collection of proof. Often this is done after filing the application to the Magistrate and only for the sake of process, nothing more than that. The role of a Protection officer is absolutely unnecessary and should be removed.

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

Because of the rampant misuse of the Protection of women from domestic violence Act the sole testimony of the woman cannot be taken as a sole witness or as occurrence of violence. The trial under this Act should be made in compliance to Indian Evidence Act rather than in compliance to Criminal Procedure Code.

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

I object to the delay on the main case proceedings in DV Act (Protection of women from domestic violence act) due to the delay on passing of orders on the interim applications. The magistrates shall ensure that interim orders are passed at the earliest and at the discretion of the officers and shall ensure the trial is not withheld over an indefinite period due to non-execution of interim orders.

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

I object that due to various loopholes in the DV Act (Protection of women from domestic violence act) the spouses are trading wild and false allegations at each other. The magistrates shall order perjury and contempt proceedings in respect of exaggerated or false allegation in respect of domestic violence, cruelty when such allegations are proved to be false.  And spouses making false allegations are to be punished. 

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

I object to the way false cases are being filed in the court without any fear. In order to stop the misuse of DV Act (Protection of women from domestic violence act) as a black mailing tool, I propose to add severe punishment to those who misuse.

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

I object to the way false cases under DV Act (Protection of women from domestic violence act) are being filed in the court without any fear. I feel that courts of this country are nothing but temple of justice but unfortunately there is a flood of petitions in front of the courts most of which are false and are being filed with ulterior motives. In order to stop the misuse of this Act as a black mailing tool, we propose to add the following two statements into the Form-II:

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

I strongly deplore to the use of the DV Act (Protection of women from domestic violence act) being used as a blackmail tool. In order to stop this particular misuse of this Act as a black mailing tool, I propose to do camera recording of the counselling/mediation done by the counsellors if the accused/respondents wishes so. The charge for these proceedings can be put on the accused/respondents.

<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>()<>

Shelter homes must be provided for the affected victims in DV Act (Protection of women from domestic violence act). When a woman undergoes domestic violence it may not be possible for her to continue to live with the accused/respondent. So, in order to protect these women, the women should be mandatorily accommodated in Govt. sponsored Shelter Homes. The cost for the accommodation may be put on the accused/respondents. The cost will be for her maintenance as per the prevailing rates as declared by the Government.

Post Card Campaign by NFHS, Bangalore on 12-July-2010

 

As part of post card campaign, this week NFHS carried two post card campaigns.  

Campaign1: To congratulate Chief Justice, TN for the Holiday Court Initiative. 25 # Postcards sent.

Campaign2: To Chief Justice, Karnataka demanding 6 additional family courts, Holiday court initiative, Evening Shifts etc. 70 # Postcards sent.

See the demands made in each post card for campaign2.

  • Induct more judges and extend the court timings to late evenings.
  • Family courts should start an evening shift in addition to the regular day shift.
  • Due to the heavy pendency of the cases Family Courts should operate on Sundays also with additional judges.
  • Additional 6 more family courts in addition to the existing 4 family courts should be opened without any further delay to cope up with the huge pendency.
  • The Family Courts shall ensure that all matrimonial cases be disposed within a period of Six months.
  • The Family Courts to officially suspend the practice of summer vacation to the benches till the time limit of Six months is met.
  • The Family Courts to officially state that no new cases to be taken till the old ones are disposed.
  • All long-pending (one year and above) cases should be transferred to the Fast Track Courts to dispose of within a time limit.
  • Family Court records must be computerized so that old cases can be disposed on a priority basis and cases can be tracked scientifically.
  • As there are overload on the court on a particular date and less-load on some dates hence the practice of giving dates in the open court must be stopped. Instead dates must be given by the computer section like in Supreme Court or judges should be given computer training and computers must be installed so that dates are given in a scientific way.
  • The tendency of one party to drag the cases to delay the proceeding must be dealt severely with heavy cost and other means.
  • Judges must be sensitized to the fact that they are dealing with the cases involving “Human life” that are driven by “emotional issues” in case of matrimonial issues which are very different from a criminal case.
