Appointment of Child Welfare Committees moving at snail’s pace

HYDERABAD: Despite the department of Women Development and Child Welfare (WDCW) getting a full-time minister Sathyavathi Rathod, there is still no progress in terms of appointment of Child Welfare Committees (CWC) for the newly formed districts. This is despite a slew of Supreme Court directives to ensure that each district has a CWC. Most recently, the Department of Women and Child Development (WCD) also submitted a status report to the SC that several states, including Telangana, did not have a fully-functional CWC.
