Budget Box: ‘Nirbhaya Fund’ to be created for women safety & empowerment
As proposed in the Budget 2013-14, government will set up ‘Nirbhaya Fund’ of Rs 1,000 crore for safety and empowerment of women.
Nirbhaya (fearless) was the pseudonym given to the victim of the inhumane Delhi-bus incident to hide her actual identity.
The Ministry of Women and Child Development and other ministries concerned will work out details of the structure, scope and application of the fund.
