29 June:The National Commission for Women has cautioned against indiscriminate use of the anti-dowry legislation and advised women to resolve their marital problems through mutual discussions.
“Section 498 (A) IPC (anti-dowry provision) is misused by many. At times, there is no need to use it at all and we can solve the problem through dialogue. To prevent the misuse of the section, Domestic Violence Act was introduced,” NCW chairperson Girija Vyas said.
She was addressing a function, organised by the All India Committee for Eradication of Illiteracy among Women (AICEIW), in New Delhi on Saturday.
