Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, who chaired the review meeting stated that the helpline received at least 2,000 calls every day. “Many women who have benefited from the service have even called back to thank us, which is a very positive sign. We have now suggested several improvements to the service and will review the progress in the next two weeks,” Dikshit said.
Departments that attended the meeting included police, law, health, commission for women, women and child and the Delhi Legal Services Authority.
According to Additional Secretary to Chief Minister Kulan and Joshi, who oversees the helpline, the plan is to now begin geographical mapping of calls. “Considering the volume of calls, we believe mapping these calls will help us focus on areas that need attention. Once we collect enough data, the government can focus on improving and addressing concerns in areas from where we receive the most calls,” Joshi said.
He said a meeting will be held every month to make any necessary improvements or changes.
