Appeal better than revision under Domestic Violence Act!

Jallarapu Laxman Rao vs Jallarapu Pedda Venkateswarlu and two others

Hyderabad HC



About/from the judgment:

Appeal better than revision under Domestic Violence Act!


The scope of appeal is wider than the scope of revision. In a revision under Sections 397 and 401 CrPC, mostly the jurisdiction is limited to law whereas in an appeal the appellate court has wider power of re-appreciating the evidence to come to an independent conclusion and reverse the orders passed by the courts below.


In view of wider scope of appeal provided under Section 29 of the Act, revision against an order passed under Section 23(1) and (2) of the Act cannot be entertained keeping in view the intention of Legislature in enacting the law for the benefit of the women who are subjected to domestic violence.
