Securing Justice: Status of Implementation of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act,2005 in Uttar Pradesh (Years 2015 to 2019)

The research report attempts to assess the effectiveness of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 (PWDV Act, 2005) in the state of Uttar Pradesh between the years 2015 and 2019. A prior study to assess the status of implementation of the PWDV Act, 2005 in Uttar Pradesh was undertaken by AALI in the year 2010 which was updated in the year 2014. While some headway was made in terms of improving infrastructure support, training-capacity building, and stakeholder convergence based on the recommendations made in the previous report, the progress has been much slower than expected. The findings in this report suggest that while the usage of the law has grown manifold since we conducted the last status study, its effectiveness remains limited because fundamental, structural, and procedural issues remain unaddressed. The findings also capture voices of women survivors of domestic violence who have used the PWDV Act, 2005 to seek relief and have experienced the challenges of the justice system first-hand. The report makes actionable recommendations for the state and the judiciary to take steps that can address existing gaps and lead to complete realization of women’s rights as envisioned in the law.

Realizing Rights: Status of Implementation of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 in Jharkhand (Years 2015 to 2019)

The research report attempts to assess the effectiveness of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 (PWDV Act, 2005) in the state of Jharkhand between the years 2015 and 2019. It has been more than fifteen years since the law was brought into effect during which no large-scale studies have been undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of the law in the state. Findings of the study show that the support systems remain divergent and dysfunctional, the process of filing DIRs and passing orders is bogged down by systemic lag, and execution of orders remains poor. The report aims to document these gaps and challenges in implementation of the special law in the state. Findings capture voices of women survivors of domestic violence who have used the PWDV Act, 2005 to seek relief and have experienced the challenges of the justice system first-hand. The report makes actionable recommendations for the state and the judiciary to take steps that can address existing gaps and lead to complete realization of women’s rights as envisioned in the law.
