The Department of Women and Child Welfare mainly aims at the all round development of the most vulnerable group of the society i.e. Women and Children. In a way it covers more than 65-75 % of population, which leads the special attention in all developmental schemes. As far as women are concerned the Department is mainly concerned with their education, health, nutrition, protection and shelter against atrocities, legal care and counseling and most importantly their organization from the grass root level.

Women of the Indian Society are mainly governed by the old taboos of the society where they had freedom and always under the shadow and dominance of the Males. This has totally hampered the development of the nation as such. But Department aims to eradicate all these taboos and hurdles and give women an opportunity to participate in all fields of development like Education, Socio-Economic, Political Activities.

As far as Children are concerned, the Department mainly aims to give an integrated package like health, nutrition, education, reduction of IMR, protection of girl child and removal of gender disparities etc.

So in order to bring change in the face of Women and Children, Government have introduced many well thought out schemes like Stri Shakti, Attendance Scholarship for Girls, Scholarship for Girls for Higher Education, Udhyogini Loan Scheme for Women Entrepreneurs, Norad, Santawana, NMBS, Girls Hostels, Women Training Scheme, Hostels for working women, Short Stay Homes, Swadhar.

For children Government have introduced Integrated Child Development Service Schemes, Scheme for Destitute Children, Creches, Street Children Welfare Scheme, Balika Samruddhi Scheme etc. We have also opened statutory institutions like Observation Homes, Bal Mandirs, Fit Persons Institutions, Juvenile Service Bureau etc. These institutions mainly aim to control and rehabilitate Juvenile Delinquency among the children in the age group of 6-18 years of age. The Department at District Level is also entrusted with the work of development of Disabled People and Senior Citizens. Now let us go through the Schemes and Organizational setup of the Department in detail.
