Sub: A petition for information under “Right to information act–2005” regarding “Honorable Chief Justice of India” remark regarding “Misuse of the 498(a)”

Enclosed a postal order no: of each Rs. 10-00 in favour of the accounts officer, Supreme court of India, New Delhi.

Dear Sir,

ABOUT MYSELF: I am P SURESH, a resident of Bangalore, Karnataka state.

ISSUE: This is a petition under “Right to information act–2005” regarding the observation of the Honorable Chief Justice of India regarding the rampant misuse of the section 498(a). It has been noticed that girls are increasingly misusing the 498(a) to settle score with their husbands and in-laws in case of family disputes. Since the 498(a) is non bailable hence the all the people named in the FIR are instantly arrested by the police without any investigation. The remark of the Honorable Chief Justice of India made at a conference is a landmark observation. In this regard I want certain information.

REQUEST FOR INFORMATION:

Dear Sir, please provide me the following information.

1. Has the observation of the “Honorable Chief Justice of India” been circulated to all the Honorable sitting Judges who are handling the cases under “498(a)”

2. In view of the landmark observation of the “Honorable Chief Justice of India” what steps are being taken by the “Supreme court of India” to reduce the misuse of the “498a(a)”?

Thanking you sir,
Yours truly,
