The desertion legally means where there has been no consummation of marriage for atleast 2 years there has to be a gap of two years to prove desertion,Therefore its one year of seperation in your case and dessertion can not be proved,But you definitely have different remedies which can be availed, if he is harassing you,you can file a complaint U/s 498A,406,34 at CAW cell besides that you can also file domestic violence case.

Hi, there should be at least a period of two years living separately just before filing the application for the ground of desertion in divorce. And for the fault of your husband, its not easy to get him divorce. If he is not allowing you to enter into his gome , that's a point of cruelty on you. If he files case for divorce, you have to defend your case wisely. I suggest you to take help of a lawyer who would wisely tackle the situation into your favor. Hope for the best.

Period of desertion is two years for obtaining divorce. In your case it is one year.so can be filed for divorce on the ground of desertion.
Since he does not allow you enter matrimonial house you can file section 9 petition for restitution of conjugal rights and also case under DV Act for other reliefs. I am in Delhi if you wish may contact me through this website for any clarification and or legal help.
