1. "Engagement" is only a ritual process or say tentative agreement for marriage.  Such engagement process has no legally enforceable value as far as legal disputes or claims are concerned.

2. Any complaint relating to revocation of proposed marriage, will serve only as a "persuasive" factor and cannot have any legal repercussions /outcome.

Keep Smiling .... Hemant Agarwal

Have a personal talk with 'bride' explain her your feelings and honestly compensate the expenses if any.  In most of the Hindu traditions, cancellation of marriage proposal after betrothal remains as a blot and may hamper her future marriage prospects.  This is not a legal angle but humanitarian approach is needed.

No other way than to engage an advocate for defending your case, and continue the efforts for a compromise.

girls side claiming that due to dowry you cancelled the marriage after engagement and women police as well as local police came to my home and said that one of compalin against you

Why you are posting facts in installments?  Calling of a marriage engagement does not involve any legal wrong, unless demand for dowry is involved.

They have to prove it in court,challenge it,it is hard to prove this type of allegations.

Pradipta Nath (Advocate)     17 November 2020

First you find out whether any case is registered or there was only a GD by the other side due to which police came to your house for their report.

Because in case you are slapped with dowry charges it is a non bailable offence. I hope you understand what I want to mean!

Attend the notice of police and get your version recorded and clarify your stand qua marriage.
