The helpline was launched in the year 2013 after the Nirbhaya episode. The Department of Telecommunications had later written to Chief Ministers of all States asking them to make the helpline available.
While a few States, including Telangana and Madhya Pradesh, have launched the helpline, others like Tamil Nadu are yet to extend the service.
"Emergency helplines like 1091 operated by the Police Department are already available in the State. And we had to explore ways to provide a holistic approach in understanding and tackling women’s issues," the official said.
Apart from calling in an emergency situation, women can avail themselves of the helpline services to get information on their rights and rules.
The Department of Social Welfare and Nutritious Meal Programme will also be tying up with the Health Department, police and the District Legal Services Authorities to help mitigate their issues.
