News : Women Helpline to Function Under Delhi Commission for Women
New Delhi, India, Feb 11, 2016 -- The government formally handed over the "181" women helpline to the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) after Women and Child Welfare Minister Sandeep Kumar issued direction in this regard following months of preparatory work and discussions.
Confirming the same, DCW Chairperson Swati Maliwal said the aim is to expand the scope of the helpline and make it operational at ground level.
"It is logical to assign the 181 helpline to the DCW. I have seen the helpline's functioning. Currently it is working as a referral service to the Delhi Police. We have to get a team on ground for pursuing every case as per its requirements and ensure cases are registered, " the DCW chief said.

The move assumes significance as it came at a time when helpline's head activist Khadija Farooqui has accused the Kejriwal government of harassing her by what she called as "frivolous notices" over attendance in office after she raised the issue of financial irregularities. Even today, the protestors backing Farooqui were seen protesting outside Delhi Secretariat.
"Work had started for giving it to the DCW chief seeing the kind of work she had undertaken. The minister today directed to formalise the work of giving the charge of the helpline to the DCW," said a senior government official.
