CHILDLINE 1098 Service » News » CHILDLINE on State Coordination Committee to review children's homes

The committee will work as a watch dog and examine the ground realities and working of children's homes. Chitra Acharya, Head, Services, CIF was inducted as a member on the panel to improve management at children's homes. The State co-ordination committee was set up by the Maharashtra State government, following the Bombay high court's directive under the chairpersonship of Asha Bajapai, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, to review children's homes across the state.

The committee, the government resolution says, will work over and above the existing state advisory board for the women and child development department, which mostly deals with the overhaul of the broad policy guidelines and not with what happens in reality.

The committee on submitted its first action plan to the high court as well as a list of six committees-one for each division. The other members include deputy commissioner (child development) H B Rathod, mental health expert Dr Harish Shetty, social worker Anjali Gokaran and Save the Children's Sarita Shankaran.
