This is being mooted as one stop relief-cum counselling helpline for women across the country. It sounds good on paper, but the child helpline (a similar model) in Chennai has had to contend with problems of inadequate, untrained staff. And also, will this be linked to the police in case of a real-time emergency — that’s a concern.
