In DV act it states that the place where husband and wife living in a shared household either rented,purchased by husband or husband living in a joint family.
If the husband is a government employee then it can also mean the shared home which is a government accomodation.As per the DV the wife has rights to stay in this shared accomodation.Now other point states that living together as husband and wife.Please note that in Hindu marriage if its done as per Hindu ceremonies its considered a valid marriage but Hindu law also states that till the husband and wife did not consumate the marriage is not complete and they are not husband and wife so in this case one cannot file DV.
There are many women organizations and lawyers who with help of police made this DV and 498a a big thing but if you have a really good lawyer then with the loopholes of our Indian law all these laws can do nothing.
There are so many politicians and bollywood stars who live in bigamy relations but still they are not charged but a common middle class man who never took dowry is asked to pay 1cr compensation for a marriage which even never took place.
I would request to make the Save India Family stronger and bring the plight of Indian men in foreign media and show them our 498a culture.
