    Great initiative by puducherry government. I wish every state government should have these kind of application or other ways for assistance of women and children. But 1 more thing I want to light on is these initiative are recovery from the disaster but we need to think about prevention of the problem as well.

    Comment there should be also a woman wing in every police station to register the FIR of women victims . Also the SHO’s of police stations should be asked to register only FIR not be judges at the movement .
