This was informed by Social Justice and Women and Child Development Minister Kiran Walia here today who has written a letter to Chief Justice of Delhi High Court in this regard.
Speaking at function, she said the government has also appointed 17 Women Protection Officers to help the women suffering from domestic violence.
These Women Protection Officers have been provided with the cell phones so that they can be immediately contacted by the victims of domestic violence.
Walia felt much of the responsibility also wrests with the predominantly male dominated society in arresting violence against women and said a change in outlook was needed.
"The solution to the problem is to sensitise people towards this evil. Only youth can be helpful in curbing this menace as they can check that their male relations do not indulge in violence against women in their families and the society," said Walia.
She also mentioned the abuse arising due to alcoholism and the drive taken up by the government to aware the masses about its ill effects.
