Brief Description

To address the issue of women’s safety and gender based violence there is a proposal to set-up One Stop Centers in 660 locations across the county, as a single point access to facilitate effective handholding of women affected by violence and to provide them medical assistance, police assistance, psycho-social support, legal aid and counselling, temporary shelter and video conferencing to facilitate Police and Court proceedings. Further the Women Helpline, which is sought to be universalized, would be a toll free service accessible to women in distress anywhere, anytime in the country through a single universal number (181).
