ANNEXURE Umbrella Scheme for Protection and Empowerment of Women Ministry of Women and Child Development (MWCD) had held a Regional Consultation in November 2011 and a National Consultation in January 2012 to review implementation of PWDV Act, which has brought to fore the gaps in its implementation which includes insufficient financial assistance to States for establishment of an institutional mechanism, non streamlining of human resource and lack of monitoring. While protection officers are the focal point in the implementation of the Act, only 5 states have appointed independent officers, which have been critically affecting the implementation of the Act. In view of personnel management, wherever existing officials in the government machinery –like ICDA, CDPOs, welfare officers, probation officers, dowry Prohibition officers, child Marriage Protection Officers have been given additional charge as POs, they are unable to work effectively since they are already overburdened and sometimes under-skilled for the task at hand. The work also gets affected by poor infrastructure insufficient funds to carry out the duties. In order to plug the gaps and inadequacies it the operationalisation of the scheme, the Ministry of Women and Child Development has formulated a scheme for `Assistance to States for effective implementation of PWDV Act, 2005', as a component of the Umbrella Scheme for Protection and Empowerment of Women for implementation during the remaining years of the 12th Plan. The Scheme, inter alia, includes appointment of independent Protection Officers with basic infrastructure and Service Providers at the district level, protection officer at the sub-division/ tehsil levels in 100 most vulnerable districts and awareness generation programmes.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
