Where can I find the text of the Indian Domestic Violence Act of 2005?

  • The close flags claim the question is "too broad" which makes no sense as it is very specific, albeit, originally a bit inaptly phrased. – ohwilleke Feb 28 '17 at 7:38

A pdf can be found here, it's a scan of the act but should suffice:


  • While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes. - From Review – Pat W. Feb 27 '17 at 20:04
  • @PatW. Honestly, in this case, the link is the only essential part of the answer to a very reasonable question. I don't see why either this question or the answer would be down voted. Somebody had a legitimate question and somebody else answered it. That is what we do. Not every question calls for analysis in the body text. – ohwilleke Feb 28 '17 at 7:37
  • @ohwilleke While I didn't downvote the question, it's probably fair to disagree about this. My take would be that there's a Q&A aspect to Law.SE, which both this question and the answer satisfy, but that there's also a content-development-for-posterity aspect. It's less justifiable on the latter grounds, and that's probably why the algorithm prompts us to take a look at these. – Pat W. Mar 2 '17 at 13:07
