70% domestic violence cases in Maharashtra yet to be heard
Mumbai: Over 70 per cent of the domestic violence cases registered in Maharashtra between 2008 and 2011 the victims are yet to be heard, the Comptroller and Auditor General of India said.
The CAG report, tabled in state legislature on Thursday, also pulled up Maharashtra Women and Child Development Department for not putting in place a mechanism to assess the number of children in need of care and protection.
As a result, the planning for establishment of children`s homes was skewed, it said.
"The monitoring by the department was lax in that there was significant shortfall in holding of meetings by district level rehabilitation committees, while district inspection committees were not constituted. There was also shortfall in inspection of children`s homes and anganwadi centres by district Women and Child Development Officers and Child Development Project Officers respectively," the report said.
"The mentally deficient children having special needs and requirements were not rehabilitated adequately," it said.
