Accordingly In an effort to tackle the concerns surrounding women’s safety, the Union Ministry of Women and Children's Development is set to introduce its National women's emergency helpline in Tamilnadu as well. Reportedly the inauguration for the helpline’s call centre took place yesterday in Chennai.

Earlier in 2013, the Union Ministry of Women and Child Development introduced its helpline number after the Nirbhaya incident occurred in Delhi. Furthermore in Tamilnadu, the Department of Social Welfare and Nutritious Meal Program will be launching the helpline along with the state health department, District Legal Services Authorities and the police department to carry out the functions of the helpline.

Call centre for Women

Accordingly the ‘181’ hotline will be staffed round the clock to provide the necessary assistance and security to women. Moreover the contact centre for the helpline will be set up at the Amma centre in Ambattur and the Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami will be inaugurating the facility on Monday. Hence people can call the 181 number for assistance at anytime. Moreover in addition to calling for help during an emergency, women can also use the hotline to get information about their rights.
