Description
Law Relating to Cruelty and Dowry Death, by B.V.R. Sarma and R. Jagan Mohan Rao, contains important principles in the shape of Judgements by the Hon'ble Supreme Court. The first all-India legislative enactment relating to dowry to be added to the statute book was the Dowry Prohibition Act, 1961. It marked the beginning of a new legal framework of dowry harassment laws effectively prohibiting the demanding, giving and taking of dowry. Tho strengthen the Anti-Dowry Law and to stop instances of cruelty by the husband or his relatives against the wife, new provisions were added to the Indian criminal law in 1983 - Section 498A to the Indian Penal Code and Section 198A to the Criminal Procedure Code. The Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act was passed in 2005, introducing additional layer of protection from dowry harassment. Although laws against dowry have been in effect for decades in India, they have been largely criticised as being ineffective. The practice of dowry deaths and murders continues to take place unchecked in many parts of India adding to the concerns of enforcement.
