To make the police stations more women-friendly and approachable. Women Help Desks would be the single point of contact for all issues relating to crimes against women. The help desk would provide regular updates to the aggrieved women on the status of their cases. Help desks would facilitate counselling, compensation, and other support provided to women victims.
They would also be responsible for providing to the complainant, information about the laws, existing schemes, and government programmes in respect of women victims of crime. Women Help Desks would facilitate conduct of awareness programmes and community liaison meetings within the jurisdiction of their respective police stations.
