OVERVIEW

At the state level, the State Resource Centre for Women (SRCW) under the State Government/UT Administration (Department of WCD/Social Welfare) provides technical support towards implementation of programmes, laws and schemes through effective coordination and convergence at the State/UT level. SRCWs review and evaluate existing policies, programmes and legislations so that activities which are cross-cutting and multi-disciplinary in nature synergise harmoniously to reach women beneficiaries. SRCWs are mandated to give focused attention to inter-sectoral issues affecting women by undertaking research, maintaining gender related data and engage in training and capacity building programs to enable greater understanding on women’s issues especially bringing the discourse on women belonging to vulnerable and marginalized communities on the forefront. SRCW is also engaged in implementation/facilitation and monitoring of schemes of MWCD such as Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, One Stop Centre and Women Helpline etc.
