for all its employees to give a declaration, at the time of marriage, stating that they had not accepted any dowry. This declaration has to be signed by the wife, father and father-in- law of the employee. The government should also be vested with the responsibility of creating awareness against the practice of dowry. Dowry is a social evil and it is essential that a strong message is sent out against the giving and taking of dowry. The government should, therefore, be vested with the responsibility of providing maximum publicity to the provisions of this law. To incorporate these provisions, there should be an introduction of Section 8C as follows (1) The Central Government shall issue instructions to the effect that every Government Servant as well as public servant shall after his marriage furnish a declaration to his Head of Department stating that he has not taken any dowry. The declaration shall be signed by his wife, father and father in law. (2) The Central Government shall take all steps to ensure that the provisions of this Act are given wide publicity through public media including the television, radio and the print media at regular intervals. It is also suggested that similar provision be incorporated for state government employees 11 Government of India , cabinet Secretariat , Department of Personal and Administrative Reform , Notification No 11013/12/75 Est .(A) 13.2.1976

    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.
