Laws related to Dowry and Dowry death in India

Dowry is the transfer of parental property, gifts or money during the marriage of the daughter. In ancient times the dowry was given by the bride’s parents to the groom or his family as a share that is needed to start a new household by a newlywed couple. But the tradition that has started in the ancient times to help the daughter or the couple has now converted into a custom to abuse and oppress women, to cause physical violence on the bride, causing an emotional and financial stress to the parents of the bride. In today’s modern society this evil still exists in the name of gifts even though it is a criminal offence to take dowry in India during the marriage but voluntary gifts are valid.

Indian Judiciary has been constituted in a very systematic and precise manner. Along with the hierarchy of courts, there also exist special courts for special causes. The powers granted and the functions delegated to, are carefully crafted to ensure fair and speedy justice. In order to uphold the principles of the nation and ensure fearless deliverance of justice, the judiciary also possesses a degree of independence. However, reality depicts an entirely different picture. With the number of judicial scandals witnessed, it is high time to draw sufficient attention towards the incapabilities of the judiciary and the corruption it carries with it.
