Its better to settle it down for any cost with in your range. OR just fight the case for years. It will give you lots of mental tension. But don't get back your 498a wife with you. This is an individual choice.

Fight back. Otherwise your brother or your cousin will again suffer if you afraid to fight. These days fighters are getting respect in the society. All in the city knows 498a is just fake and money,power needs behind it. There are tools available to fight back . System want to make for compromise because everyone will get their share. Time will frustrate them because they are in hurry to marry another party to make money again.. It is simply business man..
No need to feel shame and take it like 'glad I got 498a .. and criminal is not with you any more'
Simply see what they want, .. strengths .. weaknesses..Plan to fight. Meet local SIF team.

It's all upto ur personal choice, what u want to do?
If you want to satisfy the unnecessary demands, you can settle else you can fight. Conviction rate is low but the sword will always be on ur head. Ur growth will slow down and u will feel mentally unfit. Disturbance will always be there in ur family. Finish the matter as early as possible for re-starting ur lyf.
My advice "Buy peace at any cost".
