IPC Section 498-A: Misuse

Dedicated to the Victimised Indian Families, Who are falsely threatened & Blackmailed by the Indian Daughters-In-Law & her family members, and those Victimised families who are already falsely charged under the Section 498A. Its all about False charges of Dowry Law, Domestic Violence, Alimony, Marriage and Divorce. NOTE: All articles are my personal copyright.

Women go to the police with a complaint (may be false), but the system provides to record that as a criminal complaint and that data adds in to the National Statistics of Crime Against Women. When male goes with a genuine complaint the police at max can record a Non Cognizable offence against the women. That will never reflect in the statistics. Then how will one guage crime against men? Every 100 Suicides in India have 63 Males and 37 Females. Every 100 male suicides have 45 married males, and every 100 women suicides have 25 married Women. Married women suicides have default arrests of the inlaws under presumed dowry death. Married men suicides entitle wife for a 50% share in property. What kind of equality is this?

Aim Apparatus and Procedure

We need YOUR Help in Awareness to COMBAT this dirty Modus Operandi.

India the largest democracy is facing threat from the misuse of the loopholed laws. We need your attention and help for awareness of the same. We are hopeful that together our efforts will compel the government of India to take necessary actions for Amendments in the sections that facilitate legal terrorism and crime. How does it happen?

Here is the Modus Operandi (Estd. in 1983-84)

Aim: Making Easy Money with Vengeance.

Apparatus: Lies, Crocodile tears, You should be an Indian bride or atleast associated with one, you also need one Indian Groom with no bad track record and sound income with a very decent family, and finally the IPC Section 498A.


  • They Get Married with the Indian groom
  • They Get Maximum Investments in their name, and in the name of your husband.
  • They Get the Husband and his family henpecked with feminine characteristics (Stree Charitra)
  • If they disobey then the bride threaten them with Section 498A.
  • If they Ignore, then bride just goes to the police with lies and crocodile tears. (its as easy for her to get the support as saying Lights, Camera and Action) Faking about the dowry demands and atrocities done by the inlaws.
  • Section 498A is now triggered and all those nominated in this disgraced ride get a run for the money. Because if applied it is non compoundable and non bailable.
  • The groom side now comes to the table to negotiate with the bride for an out of court settlement for ransom for no fault of their in case of divorce.
  • Or more unfortunate people have to accept the bride with bitter atrocities for life to avoid facing music without divorcing her and remain in a pre498A stage forever.
  • They generally settle down for a ransom amount else they are left with no option but to face a Rigorous Imprisonment for 3 years irrespective of age, gender etc.
  • The burden of proof is never on the accuser and neither a penalty to the bride and her family by default for misleading the Judicial system and police.

There is not just one case in this democratic land but aplenty of them. But the Govt. is pretending sleep for any amendments. At least you should not be taken aback by lack of knowledge like most of us as ignorance is not an excuse.

Conclusion: Misuse of Sections 498A, Victimisation of innocents is in abundance and the money of an honest hardworking indian is siphoned out to such Bad Daughters in Law and her family members and Corrupt Lawyers all in the name of helpless women's welfare. There are plenty of such misused cases with enough evidence but there is too little done as the janta has taken this for granted.

Result: Either the Husbands Family is Henpecked or Handcuffed.

We too once thought this will never happen to us, as we are not criminals. But the vulnerability and loopholes were not known to us. This may happen to you too. Watch out.

You can help us by spreading the word.

Why would a daughter-in-law stop misusing laws to torture her husband and extort money ? Why ?
They won't stop.
Unless, men do something.

Why would Government change the laws of 498A ? Why ?
They won't change.
Unless, men do something.

The ball is in our court now. If you want this to continue then do nothing. Just sit back and wait till you become a victim yourself and go out searching for someone to guide you. OR, you become inquisitive, curious to know more about this menace. And then you will know that the rate at which such laws are misused is increasing every day.

Women are invading our life. Guys, "THEY ARE INVADING OUR LIFE". Now Wake up, please.

Before you completely lose all your rights by these feminism, take control of your life, protect your family and don't keep quiet.

Try to learn more about the feminist activities and you will be shocked to know their intentions and conspiracy. Be curious to know more about them, then you will know how vulnerable you are.

Kudos for Zinesh for such commendable work.

I was just wondering if reverse 498A can be filed for
asking out of court settlements. Certainly first the
husbands will have to pretend that he is ready for
such settlement and ask the other side to get
aggrement prepared for such settlement. And then use
the aggrement as documentary evidence for slapping
reverse 498A.

I have read that even asking for such settlements
amounts to dowry demand and attracts 498A.

I hope the experienced can show us some light in this

Also when 498A is proven false, can the husbands slap
charges u/s 199 - criminal conspiracy . Has such
things happened with anyone?what were the outcomes?

No, it is government sponsord legal Terrorism, they knows about this misuse,still they will not do anything to revert it or STOP this misuse.coz our corrupt Governement is supported by feminist groups,who knows they may be supplying thier group members at night to those MPs who support such Laws.

Even Police Knows about this misuse, still they take FIR, so they can make money from both sides.

Next comes Black clad Lawyers,they try to suck money out of all victims,498a filed then they start thier fees from 50000 only,and they want full amount in Advance, and poor victim will pay as much as possible,coz most of the time his old aged parents and unmarried sisters and pregnent sisters are named and blamed in this False 498a.

its a law to harass,innocent,mothers,sisters, in the name of protecting cunning wife.

What I still fail to understand is
Why? My wife was 10 times rich than
me and still she can not give up

It is as if it is her identity.
It is good thing, I never took
her picture in my wallet, otherwise
picture would have also been chewing money.
As a matter of fact, she did
get money out of my wallet once
even when it was in my pocket
20 miles away (Honest, not kidding)

u had visited my blog and asked me to visit urs and my stand.

my stand is simple. i condemn it.
every false case, is an obstacle and can stand in way of a genuine case.

but if u want a law changed , i dont support it.

faulty execution should be corrected, but that doesnt mean the law should be removed.

there are other laws which can be misused, we dont say lets remove a law due to it.

if one could take a warrant against the President of India, by giving a bribe, it doesnt mean one shouldnt be able to take warrants against anybody.

i dont associate with any group based on gender, religion or caste.
and take a stance based on the merits of the issue

this is not a trivial issue or just an issue pertainin to men. or just because a man falls victim to a system, it doesnt mean its ok.
sure women who get killed and who get harrassed for not bringing dowry may be more than men who get harrassed by misuse of law, but that does NOT justify it.

only when people stop seeing dowry as a women issue and the innocents husbands falsely charged for dowry as a male issue, can we resolve this issue.

women have to accept that men too can be victimised and the victimised men should realise, that women too have been victimised.
this has nothing to do with men vs women but everything to do with immoral people, who can be men or women and who take advantage of the situation.

just getting the law changed wont improve the circumstances. as long as corruption rules in the police stations and courts, as long as society has immoral men and women, the issue is not going to be there.

though i am not for change in dowry laws,
i am for change in rape laws, since the thought that men could be raped seems to be overlooked by our lawmakers. and when i say that, i dont mean by an overdose of viagara. if u go thru my links, u will find a post on it.

Dear Wise D,

Even The misuse of Section 498A is overlooked by the lawmakers.

It is not just against dowry but any sort of arrangement.

I accept you invitation to visit your said articile.

see you soon dear.

dear jinesh
with due respect
when i first read ur blog, i had to presume, its just another rheotric anti woman blog. just like i wouldnt care to read anti-man blog, i didnt spend much time.

for the record i dont support the double standards in law relating adultery, have addressed it in one of my posts.

my son is dead. if he had lived i wouldnt want him to be harrassed falsely on dowry.

at the same time if i have a daughter i would want her to fall victim to dowry either.

i prefer blogs which address both sides of the issue. and not just one.

to repeat what i said in my blog

Perhaps this post is a rarity for you.
Happy Birthday MIL
And being a private person, i dont post much about my family .
and fyi havent written a post on my mom.
perhaps this and the last para of More than Money in Man for me
could persuade you to tone down the rheotric in ur blog.

i dont care to spend my time on readin on just one side of the moon.

with respects.

I would not loose my patience on a quick testimonial because i know that is quick and may be by an athelete concluder. It aint no one sided blog.

But since there are many to take care on the brighter side. and we are sure once the darker side is revealed there would be brave honests who would atone for truth. and hence...,please notice my support for good women. and my lashing on bad men in my comments section of some articles.

I do care to spend time on someone who has a blog that confides an attitude worth respecting. As I could sense respect for truth.

Supporting male is not being anti female. It is as simple as that.

498 a was made to prevent harassment of women due to dowry and it is being misused for harassing women.
The most harassed persons in a 498 a case are mothers and sisters of the boy.
I feel the feminists donot treat them as women and treat only the wife as a woman.
intresting very intresting.

I had a wife with mental illness and filed for divorce with cruelty as main point. I was trying to avoid saying she have mental illness. She and her father was too greedy for the money and filed 498A. This thing happened in Kerala and now me and my old mother are facing the long term court trials. An advice to all the non-married guys..Love a girl, understand her and get married. Arranged marriage is not as good as before. People will cheat you.

Dear Friend,

I understand your plight.

But in mumbai I will show you cases of love marriage (definately a dowry less marriage) landing up in false 498a.

or endless threats to file one if the herculian alimony amount demanded by them is contested.
