Solution

The Prohibition of Dowry (Amendment) Act was enacted in1984 to more strictly implement the existing act and curb the death of women due to dowry cases.

Even after the anti-dowry law was passed, events such as a woman being burned to death when her sari pallu caught fire while cooking and a woman falling into a well while washing clothes, drowning and dying continued to be reported. Dowry was remained the most common cause of such fatalities, according to investigations. The importance of the police, administration, and courts was emphasised. This increased awareness. To combat this threat, the Dowry Prohibition (Amendment) Act was passed in 1984.
