This study is the analysis of rape incidence and various factors related to rape from 2001 to 2010 in India. The results show that at the all India level total rape victims continuously increased at the rate of 6.60 per cent during the study period and the major proportion of rape victims belong to 19-30 years of age group which states that young women have most often more danger of rape than older women. To overcome these problems there is a dire need for sustained pressure on governments to strictly implement the judicial and legislative reforms along with harsh punishment to accused so that people afraid to do such crimes.
