As a preventive measure, Prevention of Domestic Violence Act 2005 was passed by Central Government of India to protect women. According to this Act, a victim girl below 14 years can complain to Prevention officer or police against maltreatment done to her. Order of immediate protection and shelter is given. If order is not followed, then the accused is punished with an imprisonment of a year and fine of rupees 20,000.
