The CWC committees have been allocated two small rooms at the Pune Municipal Corporation-run Dalvi hospital where chairs and tables have been donated by an NGO, and currently, there are no computers. There is a need for repairs at the common toilet where the door does not shut properly.
In February, the Delhi government had issued advertisement for filling vacant posts in the existing CWC. In April and May, meetings were held for the state-level selection committee to recommend eligible candidates for the same.
In today’s column, I want to draw attention specifically to the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) in Mumbai where I spent a morning last week in the hope of getting permission to place two street children in a private children’s home run by a Parsi trust.
