Travel Guide - Marital Fraud and Dowry Abuse in India

Govt of CANADA

Culture

Foreigners have been forced into marriage without their prior knowledge or consent. For more information, see Forced marriage and Her own way - a woman’s safe-travel guide.

A number of Canadians have been involved in marital fraud and dowry abuse in India. Some cases involve misuse of India’s Dowry Prohibition Act. This law, enacted to protect women by making dowry demands a crime, is sometimes used to blackmail men through false allegations of dowry extortion. Individuals facing charges may be forced to remain in India until their cases have been settled or must compensate their spouses in exchange for the dismissal of charges. To avoid such problems, register your marriage in India along with a joint declaration of gifts exchanged, and consider a prenuptial agreement, as well.
