The Three Judge Bench of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India comprising of J. Dr. Dhananjaya Y Chandrachud, J. Indu Malhotra and J. Indira Banerjee passed a Judgment dated 15.12.2020 in the case of Smt. S Vanitha v. The Deputy Commissioner, Bengaluru Urban District & Ors. {Civil Appeal No.3822 of 2020 (Arising out of Special Leave Petition (C) No. 29760 of 2019}) and held that provisions of Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007 (#SeniorCitizens Act) cannot be invoked by in-laws to evict their #daughterinlaw as it would deprive her of rights in a shared household under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 (#DomesticViolence Act).
