Sham Chand
 
ABSTRACT
The domestic violence against women is rampant in Indian condition. Apart from deep rooted patriarchy and retrograde customs like dowry, various psychological conditions aggravate the insecurity of woman. The Parliament legislated the Protection of Women from DV Act, 2005 to provide legal support to the victims. But, the low rate of conviction under the Act raises calls for much stringent law and revamp within judiciary so that the law acts as preventive deterrent and provide succour to millions of suffering woman victims.
