News : Soon, Toll-free Helpline for Children in Distress
Ranchi, India, May 10, 2016 -- The Jharkhand State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (JSCPCR) on Monday said it would soon launch a 24-hour toll-free number for children in distress.
The decision was taken at a meeting held after a year's gap. It was attended by new JSCPCR members and chairperson.
Addressing the media after the meeting, the new JSCPCR chairperson, Arti Kujur, said, "The commission does not currently have a dedicated number to register complaints. We plan to launch a toll-free number and promote it through posters at railway stations and bus stops. The posters will highlight crime against children and child rights to educate the masses." The commission is also planning to launch its own website soon.

"We are also planning to start public hearing of cases to be organized every 15 days. Children in distress can approach us and we will try to solve their problems immediately. Hearings will be organized across all districts," said Kujur.
JSCPCR will also organize awareness workshops for police personnel and panchayat leaders. "A majority of policemen are not aware about various acts for certain child protection acts like the juvenile justice act and the prevention of children from sexual offences act. We will inform them about these acts and sections to be implemented in cases of crime against children. We will also organize meetings at various panchayats to educate locals about crimes against children," JSCPCR member Manoj Kumar said. The implementation of the right to education act and admission of BPL students was also discussed at the meeting.
