Devika Singh vs Kunal Chauhan & Anr

Delhi HC

28/03/2017

LPA 274/2016 & C.M. No. 15941/2016 ; LPA 440/2016 & C.M. No. 28284-86/2016

About/from the judgment:

NCW is empowered to look into the complaints and take suo moto notice of matters relating to deprivation of rights of women and also entitled to take up the cases of violation of the provisions of the Constitution and other laws relating to women with the appropriate authorities.

 

In the light of the aforementioned undisputed facts, the learned Single Judge was justified in holding that the procedure adopted by NCW is without any authority. Having regard to Section 10 of the NCW Act and the object sought to be achieved by the said Act, we are clear in our mind that it has never been the legislative intent to empower NCW to arrive at any final conclusion on any complaint received by it or to grant any relief which a Court is empowered to do. Therefore, as rightly held by the learned Single Judge, NCW is not entitled to issue the impugned advisory to the employer of the writ petitioner/respondent No.1, that too without any information to him.
