Sanctioned and Operational One Stop Centres

New Delhi : The One Stop Centre scheme of the Ministry of Women and Child Development is being implemented since 1st April, 2015. Till date, 733 One Stop Centres (OSCs) have been sanctioned across the country, out of which 704 OSCs have been operationalised in 35 States/ UTs. One Stop Centres provide a range of integrated services under one roof including police facilitation, medical aid, legal aid and legal counselling, psycho-social counseling and temporary shelter to women affected by violence or distress. The State/ UT-wise numbers of sanctioned and operationalized One Stop Centres alongwith the numbers of women who have been provided necessary assistance by these OSCs can be seen at Annexure.

The Government has taken fresh steps to provide speedy assistance and services at OSCs to women facing violence and distress. In this direction, the Ministry of Women and Child Development has decided to implement the umbrella scheme for safety, security and empowerment of women as an integrated women empowerment programme under the name ‘Mission Shakti’, including components of One Stop Centres, Women Helpline, women’s homes and hostels etc. For providing speedy assistance and services to distressed and violence affected women at OSCs, the Ministry has decided to set up more OSCs in areas which are distant from district headquarters or are having high rates of crime against women, to enhance the costing provisions for OSCs, and to further enhance the synergy and coordination of OSCs with the other initiatives of the government, including those under Nirbhaya Fund and under Mission Shakti.

This information was given by the Union Minister for Women and Child Development,  Smriti Zubin Irani, in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
