Updated: Sep 12

Male Suicide Index (MSI) ups by 8.3% & Husband Suicide Index (HSI) by 10%



Over 2 decades of 21st Century of India,

Women Suicide reduce by 3%

Population increase by 28%

Male Suicide increase by 48%


Daaman Welfare Society & Trust strongly request the government to set up “National Commission for Men” at the earliest


Daaman Welfare Society & Trust, registered NGOs under the aegis of Save Indian Family (SIF) movement, strongly request the government to set up a ‘National Commission for Men’ given the alarming suicide rates amongst men in the country. Male suicides in India were at 97613, much more than double that of women’s suicides at 41493, as per ADSI 2019 report of National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB).


Below, we have plotted the graph of Suicides data as per NCRB, since 1967:


Male Suicide Vs Female Suicide - 2019

This data shows us the mirror of the #Misandry filled Country that we have made it, under Feminist pressure:

  • Male Suicide Index (MSI) i.e. the ratio of Male Suicide to Female Suicides in India:

  • Since 1967, has increased from 1.4 by almost additional 1.0 and currently stands at 2.35. It means that for every 100 females committing suicide in India, 235 males are committing suicide

  • Past 20 years (21st Century), it is much more astonishing as MSI has increased by almost 52% i.e. from 1.55 in 2000 to 2.35 in 2019 while the Population growth over the same period is just about 28%

  • India lost 97613 sons to Suicides Last Year, an increase of 6% from the data of 2018.This, as compared to a decrease of 2.2% in Suicides of Women, brings in a total increase of almost 8.3% in the MSI. This is within a population increase of just 1%

  • MSI increased from 2.17 in 2018 to 2.35 in 2019, marking it as the 2nd Steepest Year-On-Year jump in MSI since 1967 (First being in 2012 at 8.7%).

  • This means that India loses a Son to Suicide every 5.38 Minutes or that more than 11 Sons are forced to commit Suicide every Hour, as against about 4 female suicides every hour. This means that by the time this Press Release is read & comprehended in about 5 minutes 23 seconds, 1 male would have committed suicide in India


It is really very ironical that in our country, where Feminists keep words like Patriarchy, Women Empowerment evergreen; where Politicians keep going overboard to please the women vote bank; where Law is Biased; Gender Based Courts, Gender based Police exist AND where the Society is highly Women Centric, Men find them always forced more to suicides by huge percentage.


Further, ADSI 2019, while giving the data on suicides of Married Men (Husbands) and Married Women (Wife) has shown unprecedented increase in Husband Suicides too:


Husband Suicide Index - 2019

This data shows us the mirror of the state of pressure on Husbands and a clear push-on killing the Family system by making Marriage as a Suicidal zone for men, because of #GenderBiasedLaws and ignoring the Men at large:

  • Husband Suicide Index (HSI) i.e. the ratio of Married Male Suicide to Married Female Suicides in India:

  • Since 1995, has increased from 1.43 by almost additional 1.15 and currently stands at 2.58. It means that for every 100 wives committing suicide in India, 258 Husbands are committing suicide

  • Past 20 years (21st Century), it is much more astonishing as HSI has increased by almost 61% i.e. from 1.6 in 2000 to 2.58 in 2019 while the Population growth over the same period is just about 28%

  • India lost 66815 Married Men to Suicides Last Year, an increase of 3.1% from the data of 2018. This, as compared to a decrease of 6.5% in Suicides of Married Women, brings in a total increase of whooping 10.3% in the HSI. This is within a population increase of just 1%

  • HSI increased from 2.34 in 2018 to 2.58 in 2019, marking it as the Steepest Ever Year-On-Year jump in HSI since 1995.

  • This means that India loses a Married Men to Suicide every 7.86 Minutes or that more than 7.6 Husbands are forced to commit Suicide every Hour, as against about 2.96 wives suicides every hour. This means that by the time this Press Release is read, comprehended & shared in about 7 minutes 52 seconds, 1 Husband would have committed suicide in India


Few more important pointers from the data of ADSI 2019, it is amply clear that:

  1. Family Problems is the biggest reason for suicide (unlike to more highlighted reasons for Farmers/Financial issues). Family Problem accounts for 32.4% of the Total Suicides in India. It is important to note that till 1995, the reason for “Family Problem” was not even existing. Before 1995, the reason was “Quarrel with In-Laws, Spouse”. In a habit of miniaturizing the problems of Men, Feminist pressures clubbed those into Family Problems to just make it sound like a vague reason. To put in the right perspective, “Quarrel with In-Laws, Spouse” is the reason for 32.4% suicides in 2019.

  2. Marriage is Dangerous for Men and Better for Women: Amongst Married People, Husbands were 72+% while Male in unmarried category formed 66.4+% of the total suicide. So, Marriage increases the risk of suicide on Men by about 6%. While Marriage makes it 6% safer and better for Women.

  3. Marriage being dangerous for Men and safer for women is further established by the fact that even in case of Divorced + Separated category on Suicides, Male was found to be about 8% lesser than in case of being Married. Whereas, in the case of Female, there is an increase of 8% in their ratio of total suicides once Divorce/Separated as against their married population.


Total Suicides

In the farming sector, amongst 10281 suicides, 90+% were Men.


Suicides by men surpass that of women by a wide margin regardless of social status – whether unmarried, married, widowed/widower, divorcee and separated. Looking at NCRB data of the last 11 years only, it is highly shameful that close to 10 lakh (1 million) Indian Men have committed suicide and the government is sitting silently without caring about men of this country. The government has only been focussed on making women-centric laws and spending thousands of crores of rupees each year on various gender biased schemes and programs both at the central and state levels. It is really sad that even during the Corona, where Men are 70% of the total deaths, Feminist organizations like WHO have been spreading the falsehood of Domestic Violence on Women while the reality is that Men are bigger victims of Domestic Violence. DV on men has increased because of CoVID19. without caring about men of this country.

Indian Male Suicide has been increasing regularly. In the last 20 years, Male Suicide Index (MSI), has increased from 1.55 to 2.35. This is very alarming. Men are under a lot of stress, unable to cope up with the demands of modern-day society. Lack of empathy of society and government towards men is an area of serious concern.


It is high time that the government acknowledges that men in this country have been suffering due to lack of empathy towards men as victims in the society and rampant misuse of women-centric laws. We strongly urge the government to take steps towards addressing issues of men by forming a ‘National Commission for Men’ and abolishing all gender-biased laws.
