If you do dirty work with a woman on the pretext of marriage, you will be jailed for 10 years, Section 69 of the new law will teach you a lesson


New Delhi: New criminal laws have come into force in the country from July 1. Three new laws have replaced old laws like IPC and CrPC of the British era. After this, the names of many sections have also changed. This new law is more strict for those who cheat or take advantage by making a false promise of marriage. If a man cheats his girlfriend or has physical relations with her by making a false promise of marriage, he can be jailed for up to 10 years and can also be fined. This has been mentioned in Section 69 of the BNS i.e. Indian Judicial Code.What does Section 69 of the Act say?
Section 69 of the Indian Justice Code (BNS) deals with sexual intercourse by deception or false promise. This section states that whoever has sexual intercourse with a woman by deceiving her or by making false promise of marriage, without having any intention of marrying her, can face a jail term of up to 10 years and fine. Note that this does not fall under the category of rape.

According to the Law Ministry, methods of fraud include the following:
➤Making false promises of getting a job
Making false promises of promotion
➤Making false promises of marriage by hiding your real identity

Earlier, such situations were decided under Section 90 (IPC) of the law. This section stated that if someone is persuaded to have a relationship on the basis of any wrong information, then it will not be considered as true consent. In such a situation, that person could be charged with rape (Section 375, IPC).
