NEW DELHI: National Commission for Women on Thursday said the number of complaints of domestic violence, which saw a rise during the pandemic years, had witnessed a decline in 2023.
Last year, 28,811 complaints were lodged by the NCW across various categories of crimes against women. In the preceding two years, the number was over 30,000.
“During the Covid period, domestic violence had increased and it was a worldwide trend. Now the numbers have come down, which only reflects that trends are on the lines of the pre-Covid period,” NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma said.
As per NCW data, in 2020, there were 5,304 complaints of domestic violence out of 23,722 cases. In 2019, there were 2,960 complaints of domestic violence out of 19,730.
