Comprehensive and free information about how to protect yourself and take preventive measures to save your family from this law.

Passed by Indian Parliament in 1983, Indian Penal Code 498A, is a criminal law (not a civil law) which is defined as follows, “Whoever, being the husband or the relative of the husband of a woman, subjects such woman to cruelty shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and shall also be liable to fine. The offence is Cognizable, non-compoundable and non-bailable.”

We are on an attempt to create awareness among Indian nationals about the rampant misuse of 498a (Dowry Law misuse) by unscrupulous women to extort money and harass their husband’s entire extended family.

This website is dedicated to help the victims of gender-biased laws of India (498a and domestic violence against women law) and provide comprehensive and free information about how to protect yourself and take preventive measures to save your family from this law which has been termed as ‘legal terrorism’ by the Supreme Court of India.
