Females of Indian society laden with dowry tradition have implications in the familial, educational, social and psychological experiences and also have serious impact on their future lives. Studies in this direction are very few in India. This study was a qualitative and analytical research method based on primary and secondary information. The sample area of study has been taken Ahmadabad and Gandhinagar as they are the state capitals and have maximum number of interstate migrants in Gujarat (Census, 2001). The selected sample area is also appropriate from the point of view of urbanized and educated locality. The study is conducted taking time period of maximum of last 25 years. Through the literature review, the researcher could identify specific core issues. Conclusions highlight and reinforce the findings of earlier studies that describe the trauma faced by women where dowry traditions are practiced on huge scale and emphasize the need for further study and legislative action to deal with this malaise. This study provides hope for females victimized on the name of dowry who can benefit from other agencies including volunteer organizations.
