SECTION 498A AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE A TOOL FOR LEGAL EXTORTION – Mrs. Shikha Dube Saxena, Mrs. Reshma Patil & Ms. Jyoti Sharma

ABSTRACT Customs and traditions play an important role in Indian society. Marriage is one of the most popular forms of social media, but it has changed significantly over the years. The Domestic Violence Act and section 498A are designed to ensure that vulnerable people are protected from adverse treatment in the housing sector. In the long run, these regulations are abused and produce many negative consequences. The verification tool was used to withdraw funds. The Supreme Court warned him that this was a “legal offence”. Indian society sees women as victims. If a man complains that he is beaten or harassed by his wife at home, it is ignored. Most of them violate fundamental rights. In the series, couples treat their partners physically and emotionally.

According to the Domestic Violence Act and Section 498a of the Indian Penal Code, women have the legal right to have superior Characteristics. This creates a society where men are disenfranchised. This lack of legal protection for men has created a culture of gender inequality and domestic violence. Without legal protection, many Indian men feel helpless and unable to seek help.

 This gender inequality is a severe problem that needs to be addressed. Severe changes to the law are required to ensure justice and protect men and their families from violations of their fundamental rights. This Research paper will take a closer look at the Misuse of Domestic Violence Act and Section 498A as a tool of coercion for Extortion. Some articles discuss the misuse of Section 498a and the misreportation of domestic violence. This Research paper examines the oppressive legal relationships that lead to torture through an extensive literature review, case studies and interview analysis. It recommends changing these oppressive legal relationships with victims, legal systems, and individuals.
