Also, the National Crime Records Bureau NCRB data, post and till date, do not indicate that crimes against women in the name of domestic violence have reduced to a satisfying number. Apparently the section was more misused than used the act is an extension of these sections and there are all possibilities of it being mis-used. InNCW came out with its draft Bill on domestic violence, which was vehemently criticized by women's organizations.
