ABSTRACT

In present era, we can hear and see, a lots in social media about the burning of females after death of her husband, which was known to be Johar or Satipratha before but now a days it is due to Dowry, the women was forced by husband if alive or mother-in-law and all for dowry. In many cases we find that some women’s after marriage are attempting suicide by burning themselves, hanging over the fan etc. If we talk about historical background of dowry – it is ancient custom with no records or when it started or where. In India during the vedic and Indus civilization it is seen the dowry was practiced from that time. The study focused about dowry violence. So keeping this in view the researches has attempted to review the literature related with the practice of dowry, and laws practiced with the dowry. Although dowry has long been outlawed in India, the age old custom persists. One of the longest standing evils associated with marriage from a women’s point of view in Indian society is the dowry system. Many act’s have been launched to overcome this problem like the dowry prohibition act-1961, which is mostly challenged since its commencement all over the country. This article deal with this section 304-B (dowry death) and 498-A (cruelty by husband or in laws) were incorporated in I.P.C. 1980. To deal with this social curse, educational systems, educational cum awareness programme, knowledge about laws, should be known to every one to fight out with this dowry death.
