INTRODUCTION
Six decades past independence, the country has seen remarkable economic prosperity,and increasingly higher standards of living. But the stature and liberty that the Indian womanenjoys has not seen as dramatic an ascent. As much as people as reluctant to face it, thepractice of dowry and acts of domestic violence very much prevail. One may ponder as to
how the legislature and law enforcement agencies of the world‟s largest demo
cracy fail tocontain these transgressions.One debatable reason is that these bodies do not function very effectively for victimsbelonging to every stratum of the society. Often, taking a legal course of action against suchactions can require a lot of money, sometimes too much for most victims to afford. Thisapart, the extent to which the Indian legislature is loaded with pending cases makes itunlikely that a verdict for such a case will be received in favourable amount of time.These factors have moti
vated initiatives like the „
 Nari Adalat’ 
to come into being andtake action. These groups focus on solving issues involving injustice against women,including domestic violence and mental harassment in such a way as to ensure that not onlydoes the victim gets the desired verdict, but to as much extent as possible the interest andprosperity of the family as whole is prioritized.This focus, however, faces its own set of hurdles. Many of these organizations lack thedegree of support they require which limits the number of victims they can help. The fact thatthey are seen by some as a
“divorcing agency” creates another significant impediment as it
may influence the will of a victim to approach them. This report aims to describe the keylearnings of violence against women, acquired
from the observational visit to the „
 Nari
 Adalat’ 
, to enumerate the major issues currently faced, and suggest how the society cancontribute to and subsequently benefit from its functional success.
