Gadchiroli Nov. 25 (District Correspondent) District Collector Sanjay Meena has taken a decision to hold the child protection meetings at taluka levels to implement the schemes related to child welfare more effectively.
A meeting of the district level committee was recently held at the collectorate under the chairmanship of Mr. Meena in which directives in this regard were given by Mr. Meena.
As per Women and Child Development Department, orphans, destitute, single parents, children suffering from diseases HIV, sickle cell, children of prisoners serving life sentence, etc are to be given the benefit of the child protection schemes. According to JJ Act child care scheme is being implemented in the district under Women and Child Development Officer for the children who need care and protection. Beneficiary children from the district come to the district level office to avail the benefit of the scheme. As the geographical area of the district is very huge as well as transportation facilities are limited, beneficiaries faced many difficulties in submitting proposals to the district level office. Hence the proposals should be considered at the taluka level, directed the Collector.
If the child care scheme is to be availed from 1st December 2022, it should be submitted at the child development project officer’s office at the taluka location without submitting the proposal to the district level office, it was instructed. This scheme is free and no fees or intermediaries are required. If there is any problem regarding this scheme or if anyone is demanding money for availing the benefit of the scheme, people may contact the office of District Child Protection Cell Gadchiroli on Phone No.-07132222645 or Email Id- firstname.lastname@example.org Contact on this, it has been appealed.
Necessary documents required for Child Care Scheme:- Application form in prescribed format, 1 post card size photograph of parent and child in front of the house, Medical certificate of parent, Income certificate of current year (Talathi or Tehsildar), Aadhaar card of parent, Aadhaar card of child, Passbook of nationalized bank of parent, Passbook of child Birth certificate, Child’s current year bonafide certificate, Death certificate of parent, Certificate of parent being in jail (if applicable), Certificate if parent is HIV positive (if applicable), Sickle cell certificate (if applicable), it has been informed by Mr. Prakash Bhandakkar, District Women and child Development Officer.
