News : Bengal Plans Setting Up Call Centre to Curb Crime Against Women


Kolkata, India, Dec 5, 2019 -- In the backdrop of the Hyderabad gangrape and murder of a veterinary doctor, the West Bengal government is mulling to set up a call centre having a toll free number to cater to the complaints of crime against women in the districts, a senior official said on Thursday.

The centre would be funded from a portion of the Nirbhaya fund that the state gets from the Union government.

"There will be a toll-free number for the purpose.

Once a call is received, the executives at the call centre will alert the concerned police station in the districts for prompt action," the officer said.

Around 40 per cent of the amount out of the Nirbhaya fund that the state gets from the centre would be earmarked for the purpose, he said.

2021 Buyers Guide Employee Engagement Solutions

Typical Problem!

In-house surveys can be time consuming, cumbersome at best and many staff often don't provide valid feedback as they fear ‘being too honest' with their employer for fear of retribution.

Even some 3rd party ‘managed' surveys can be challenging, costly and then there is no benchmark or significant value other than ‘managed by a 3rd party' approach, which leads to the problem of validity of data, security and integrity plus costs and time required by you.

The Solution!

TopPlace2Work is an easy to use program that allows you to gather valuable data on employee morale and engagement.
