Dear Vidyut, I am writing to you to see if you have a new idea for women
safety and empowerment. We at the Ministry of Women & Child Development have formulated the National Policy for Women.
It has been a 2 year process with several stakeholder consultations. This transformative policy will address the needs of women in the New India
and also guide the functioning of the Government
in decades to come. We have a draft ready
and before we conclude it, I am seeking some out-of-the-box ideas and suggestions
from you that could be incorporated into the policy. Vidyut, I have been happy to take action on Change.org petitions supported by you.
We have taken steps to ease the passport rules for children of single parents and control the alarming rates of caesarean section births. I would now like to hear your suggestions for this policy by the 15th May 2017. Click on this link
to submit your suggestion. You can also send your suggestions on Twitter and on the Facebook
page of the Ministry. Don’t forget to add#NationalPolicy4Women
on all your suggestions. Thank you for participating in developing this Policy for Women. Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi Minister For Women and Child Development
