The DV Act recognizes domestic violence as a distinct offence and provides protection and relief to victims, particularly women. It focuses on the civil aspects of domestic violence, such as obtaining protection orders, residence orders, monetary relief, and custody orders for children. Under the Domestic Violence Act (DV Act), the establishment of shelter homes and the provision of medical assistance to aggrieved persons are important measures to ensure their safety, well-being, and support during legal proceedings. Here is a brief explanation of these provisions:

  1. Shelter Homes: The DV Act recognizes the need for providing a safe and secure environment to victims of domestic violence. It mandates the establishment of shelter homes, also known as protection homes or safe houses, to accommodate and protect the aggrieved persons who are in need of a temporary place of residence. Shelter homes offer a refuge for victims and their children, ensuring their safety from further acts of domestic violence.

Shelter homes are intended to provide the following:

  • A safe living environment free from violence and abuse.
  • Basic amenities and facilities for the physical and psychological well-being of the residents.
  • Counselling and support services to help the victims cope with the trauma of domestic violence.
  • Legal assistance to guide them through the legal proceedings and ensure their rights are protected.
  • Educational and vocational training opportunities to empower them for independent living.
  • Access to medical assistance, if required.
  1. Provision of Medical Assistance: The DV Act acknowledges that victims of domestic violence may require immediate medical attention due to physical injuries or psychological trauma. The act emphasizes the importance of providing medical assistance to the aggrieved persons.


The provision of medical assistance includes :

  • Immediate medical treatment and emergency care for injuries caused by domestic violence.
  • Access to medical professionals who can document and provide evidence of the injuries.
  • Psychological counselling and therapy to address the emotional and mental health impact of the violence.
  • Referral to specialized medical services, such as gynaecological care or rehabilitation, if necessary.
  • Medical reports and documentation can serve as evidence in legal proceedings.

The DV Act recognizes the right of the aggrieved person to receive medical assistance and ensures that necessary support is provided to address their healthcare needs. It’s important to note that the establishment of shelter homes and the provision of medical assistance may vary in practice depending on the resources and infrastructure available in different regions.
