India has women-friendly laws, implementation is poor: Geeta Luthra

Mar 13, 2015

New Delhi: This episode of Ek Duniya Ek Awaz talks about the laws and acts related to women. It provides important information on women’s rights like a woman cannot be arrested at night and that she cannot be put in a men’s cell under any condition.

Such information is being provided to the needy people, particularly women, scheduled castes, tribal communities and minorities through voice based information kiosks installed by the Indian government in the States of Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh.

The Kiosks are part of a project, Nyaya Path, which is a joint initiative by the UNDP, Department of Justice, Government of India and OneWorld.

Geeta Luthra, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court of India, speaks about the importance of Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005. She further suggests that societal and educational change is important to make women empowered and respected. She added that the country has sufficient laws but the problem lies in their implementation which delays the process of justice.
