Hyderabad: Demonetisation has disrupted marital lives of many couples in the city, as men are refusing to provide cash to run the house. Domestic violence is also on the rise.
According to support and counseling centres of the city, there is an increase in complaints of physical and verbal abuse from women due to the cash crunch.
Women complain that their husbands have been neglecting them or harassing them. Some husbands even abandoned their families.
According to activists, although many of these men have a history of domestic violence but the demonetisation has worsened the situation.
