Legal Question in Real Estate Law in India

There is this woman who is living in a house that is owned by her mother-in-law. Her husband disappeared and her children do not live with her anymore. Now her mother-in-law wants to put her out of the house. I would like to find a law that can protect this woman, if there is any. Where should I search?

There are conflicting view points of courts of different states. Under the Domestic Violence Act she has a right of residence in a house belonging to her husband or in which her husband has a share. Here, in this case, house belongs to mother in law. However, some courts have extended the shared household to mean to include matrimonial home. That is your only chance to help her.
