Punishment may be more. Why to play with life & emotions of a human ?

Why do you ask this question ?

The aim of framing law is to maintain peaceful co-existance of all the human beings in the society by making rules to deter the crime and lawlessness and punish the guilty. Any crime committed must be taken into account and as per the severity of crime, punishment must be ensured to avoid the recurrence of the crime. Unfortunitely, IPC sec 498a has been so much misused by the greedy, unscrupulous people that  the Act has lost it's purpose and has become a cause to break the relationship for ever. Any dowry demand is totally unjustified and is a greed to shamelessly beg from the prospective bride or her family. But equally henious is the crime to falsely implicate anyone under this Act. The punishment may be increased to life term but in false cases, the punishment must be equal i.e. life term to the person  who has falsely made the allegations.

Punishment for filing False case should be atleast one year Imprisonment with Fine & Claim by Victim. for Abusing Legal System and Unnecessary Burdening Law process. If this Section would be bailable. No Greedy inlaw will even think to file

look i am talking about punishment given to MEN and not to women. since the nature of the crime dealt in by section 498A is SUBJECTIVE, the punishment must be lesser.

 

but to women who file false complaint should be given punishment : 6 months jail and fine.

 

do you agree?

I also agree with other members that Nothing is wrong with present punishment-quantum to dowry seeker in 498a.

But false complaints should also carry punishment clause.

Other thing:- Dowry Crime shud be nipped in the bud. State has provided such easy platforms 4 the girl n her parents so as they shud nt give dowry at the 1st instance itself. When they can use state machinary raising hue & cry, say after 5 years of marriage, WHY DIDNT THEY INFORM THE POLICE WHEN BOY'S SIDE ASKED 4 DOWRY AT MARRIAGE TIME? Why they remained silent & participated equally in the CRIME........acted in collusion?

When things have turned sour, they thought of punishing the boy's side. Girl n her parents also should be punished invariably under DP3 as dowry giving is also a crime.
