‘Work done by women after marriage is more than dowry’
 
THE Government cannot reach every family or every home in the country, says Prem Narain, a 1978 batch UP cadre IAS officer and Secretary, Women and Child Development Ministry. Excerpts from an interview with Anil Tyagi and Neeraj Mahajan:

Mr Narain: Even earlier, this Act was referred but not passed….but this time, everyone agreed that indecent representation of women needs to be curtailed. Therefore, it was passed unanimously.

Mr Narain: We are proposing some more amendments in the existing Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
