136 ANNUAL REPORT 2008-09 Justification on the proposed amendment: 1.Justification for proposing the power to make rules regarding the qualifications of a protection officer to vest with the Central government The Protection Officers, as stated in the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act. 2005 are appointed not only to provide assistance to the victim but also assist the Magistrate in the implementation of the Act. It is important that the rules regarding appointment etc. to such a position should be uniform throughout the country. Hence the power to decide their qualifications etc should vest with the Central Government. The Central Government should prescribe such a qualification that is competent and qualified enough to carry out the duties. The object is to make the Protection Officers as effective as possible and not be a failure like the Dowry Prohibition Officers. 2.Justification for recommending the issuance of special Instruction with regard to government employees It must be especially made sure that Government Servants, who bear the responsibility of being the representatives of the public, do not take or demand dowry. Thus, a special provision has been suggested in this context. An example can be cited from the state of Kerala, where, in a move to end the increasing dowry menace, the State Government has made it mandatory for all its employees to give a declaration after marriage stating that they have not accepted any dowry. The declaration to be submitted to the head of department would have to be signed by the father, father-in-law and wife of the employee, as per the amended Kerala Dowry Prohibition Rules under the Dowry Prohibition Act 1961.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
