There are 4 types of domestic violence which is recognized under Protection of Women From Domestic Violence Act, 2005. These are: Physical, verbal, and emotional ( which includes not having a child or a male child, marrying without consent), and economic (including violence related to stridhan, dowry, property) and s*xual (includes s*xual abuse and marital rape).

The Protection of Women From Domestic Violence Act (PWDVA), 2005 was enforced to provide for more effective protection of the rights of women which are guaranteed under the constitution who are victims of any kind of violence occurring within the family and for matters connected thereto.
