The unknown strength and rights of women
The unknown strength and rights of women
The women in general vulnerable for any sorts of victimsation right from physical abuse till to the end of their wealth and properties. Even at the domestic levels at home the petty savings of women are forcibly taken away by the vindictive men and spent lavishly on racing, gambling, drinking and dancing in clubs and in their extravaganza and the hard earned and saved money of a woman under the sky has been used for the sake of somebody and not for the sake of her self to meet herself needs or the family needs or so.
When she raises her voice for securing her petty savings then the domestic quarrel starts and ends with a grievous injury to the innocent women and extended to the innocent children of the family also. This is one side of the show and on the other side the immovable properties and wealth of women also finds the same type of perpetrations by the male and female partners in the family and the women are definitely at loss on their civil rights over their properties.
In India the joint family system was in practice in the social systems and it has its own advantages as well as disadvantages besides the dowry system in their marriage customs and the women were sent to the matrimonial home with sizeable amount of money, wealth and materials etc. and over a period of time the small gifts given to the women in marriage has been created a situation that women are exploited in the name of marriage and their civil rights have been ruined and the women are simply sold to the buyers called the so called bridegrooms and naturally the status of women after the marriage is diminished and then onwards the suffering for her till she goes to the grave yard.
Even after a long fight against dowry and marriage systems in Indian society, the women could not find their space in the society and the unfair treatment for women in the society continues for generations and the women liberation has not taken the real Philip and the women in India has to come out without any fear and voice for their rights under the sky.
The women property right in India is the absolute right under the Indian constitution for a woman and no one can empower the property or claim the same. In order the gain the property out of law the male counterparts using the vulnerable points of women and grab the same with muscle support, physical assault, damaging the mental and physical health of women or damaging their properties or creating encumbrances over women properties and committing the women properties for the male liabilities etc.
The close relatives including husbands, in-laws and some times the parental relatives and the neighbors are the first line perpetrators and the real estate brokers , the hasty investors who have surplus money and safeguard their lucid money in immovable revenue bearing properties for their future benefits and the politicians who aim for a large sized landed properties for their future business activities are the some of the groups in the society deliberately attack the innocent women and their properties both at the rural and urban areas and with the support of the local real estate broker who are un organized and mostly engage in manipulating the documents and credentials of the lands along with the officials at the registration departments simply involve in cheating acts and attitude on women rights over the landed properties.
In most of the cases the properties of women are perpetrated by unauthorized occupation over the vacant lands, forcibly taken way by the governments for the development of economic zones or airport development and highway road development etc.
It is done on collective methods with the help of revenue officials and the money paid to one powerful member in the family, preferably the male member and paved the way for the denial of the consideration money or the compensation amount to the real property holder say the woman and the doors of Law is also closed for her plea if any in such cases.
This is a deliberate act on the part of the government and the officials and such acts are the real human rights violations and needs stringent actions under the land law and the women are unfortunate and find no forum for their voice and restoration of their civil rights over their wealth and properties in India.
The government registration department officials and survey officials are government servants who daringly collect a booty of amount as bribe and work against the interest of women in property related cases and the governance for vigilance and anti corruption is not effectively working on them and hence there is no way for combating the corrupted officials at this level.
The second and major act and attitude of the registration officials is that manipulating the guide line value either reducing or increasing the guide line value of the property and for the difference gained by the buyer and the seller from the registration duty is collected as bribe and by this act and attitude both the government and the public are being cheated especially the women land/ property owners.
The advocates in most of the women issues including marriage and property related cases attempt on cheating the victims and jointly work on foul palys with the opposition parties and try to deprive the rights of women under the Indian constitution. Many a times the judiciary also bribed and the justice is denied for innocent women.
There is a time duration given under the law for representing the matter on sale of properties and related issues where the advocates of either parties jointly play foul palys and do not allow the women to make plea in higher courts or counter the decisions and in such cases the women lose the chance of representing the matter to the next level of courts and the justice is denied for women.
Sometimes the judicial staff take out the “land and property documents” out of courts and create encumbrances over the same by using the documents and source out for loans and further for finance business during the period and enjoy the marginal benefits over the said properties. Therefore the safety and security for the civil property in general is deprived by such act and attitude of the officials and authorities is obvious in every case of women related and their civil rights related issues.
The partied who in particular on investing women properties try to involve in all types of unlawful activities including attempting of the women owners of the properties for retaining their interest over the same and attempt on violation of human rights over the innocent women.
A long time research is required in studying the field of victimization on women and their properties and the legal procedures in restoration of the civil rights of women in this country veymuch laborious and tedious and the delayed justice is denied justice in the case of women and their property related issues.
Therefore I request the women of India to voice for an immediate settlement of pending cases on civil issues related to women and their absolute rights and the cases need to be settled with suitable compensations to the victim women of any sort. They need to get back their rights over the properties and their civil rights need to be restored at once.
I call upon women voice for the restoration of their civil rights in this country by settling all the pending civil cases against women immediately with suitable compensation to them so that the women could get their civil rights established in this country .
