In the recent times we have seen a steep rise in false cases of sec 498A of the IPC. Which has ultimately questioned the legal validity of sec 498A of IPC and need to make amendments due to changing scenario in society. The marriage in India is considered as a sacred bond of two souls and is the divine social institution in society. But this social institution has gone a complete transformation in past few decades. Due to rise in dowry deaths in India govt added new provisions called 498A in Indian penal code. But in present times we have seen many misuse incidents of this sec by women to harsh their husbands and his family. This paper aims to see the other side of sec 498A i.e., the missuses of this provision by women and its impact on husband and his family.
