The key thing about the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act is that it is Quasi-civil act meaning it’s provisions/reliefs are civil in nature and there is no penal punishment like in Criminal cases. One caveat to this is that there is “Penalty for breach of protection order by respondent” which will attract the CrPC provisions.
Per section 29 of the Act, there shall lie an appeal to the Court of Session within thirty days from the date on which the order made by the Magistrate is served on the aggrieved person or the respondent, as the case may be, whichever is later. Do not waste your time and resources by filing revisions which are not maintainable.
Screw Up Alert:
If you do not properly strategize and time your actions in fighting this case, you may lose money in the form of Interim maintenance to your Knife. Be aware and be alert !!
