The Social Welfare Department of the J & K government is trying to provide a dignified life to the people who need their hand holding.

Recently in a review meeting Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir has asked the officers of the Social Welfare Department that they should help all those women who need the help and the assistance.

He stressed on bringing every woman in distress to these facilities meant for them. He advised them to provide them legal and other aid there besides giving them the necessary protection. The Chief Secretary told the Commissioner Secretary to give all their helpline numbers widest possible  publicity and host these even on e-UNNAT and other websites.

The Commissioner Secretary informed the CS that the department has made each of its services online for the ease of public. It was further given out that there is a Drug de-addiction center, Narineketan and One Stop Centres in each district and four Model Narineketans in each division.

She also revealed that the department is shortly going to provide 700 more tricycles to the needy and saturate the scheme for them. Moreover the department has saturated all its pension schemes whether provided to old age persons, widows, transgenders or specially abled persons, the meeting was informed.

Pertinent to mention here that the decision to assign deliverables to all departments is a first-of-its-kind and innovative initiative of the government aimed at propelling growth and development in the Union Territory by prioritizing transformative action in all areas.

These deliverables broadly define the priority areas towards ensuring greater efficiency in the overall governance of Jammu and Kashmir, and lay down monthly, quarterly, half-yearly and yearly targets for all departments. The list of deliverables broadly includes approximately 1250 tangible targets relevant for improving the public service.
