The World Working Women Congress under the auspices of the WFTU will be held at Pananma on 8th to 10th March 2018. Delegates from more than 40 countries are expected to participate and discuss about the various issues of the working women all over the world. We fully welcome the decision. Working Women from India are also expected to participate.
Tripura has become the first state in the country to set up family welfare district committees to examine the complaints of women against their husbands and in-laws and find an amicable solution, Chief Justice T Vaiphei has said.
“The committees would examine the complaints of any woman against her husband, in-laws and relatives of the husband and try to find an amicable solution through negotiation,” he said.
Vaiphei said that Tripura High Court is the first high court among 24 high courts of the country that has constituted the family welfare district committees.
Tripura High Court Judge Subhashish Talapatra said, in the Rajesh Sharma versus state of Uttar Pradesh case, the Supreme Court on July 27 directed that each complaint of cruelty to a woman by her husband or his relatives, which does not involve tangible physical injuries or death, shall be referred to the family welfare committee of the district.

The information was given in Parliament by Jitendra Singh MoS in the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions. Copy of the same is given below.
