      includes the nine months of pregnancy, six months of exclusive breastfeeding and the period

      One Stop Centres
            Women who suffer violence face huge problems in getting justice as they have to register
      FIRs and engage lawyers to fight court cases. In many cases the medical evidence gets destroyed
      due to lack of knowledge or pressure from perpetrators. As a result, very often women suffer
      violence but do not complain. In order to assist such women, a new initiative to establish One
      Stop Centres (OSC) was conceived and is being implemented across the country since April
      2015. A woman who has suffered violence can get medical, police, legal and psychological
      counselling assistance at these centres. These also have a place for them to temporarily stay in
      case their condition so warrants. The OSC, popularly known by the name of Sakhi will be
      integrated with 181 and other existing helplines. The first centre was inaugurated at Raipur,
      Chhattisgarh in 2015. So far 138 such centres have been operational in 31 states/UTs., catering to
      the needs of the women affected by violence. Over 4000 women have been assisted in these
      centres, which have come up in the last six months or so. At least one such centre will be
      established in each district by the end of 2018-19.
            The scheme is implemented through the state/UT government. The management committee
      headed by District Collector is responsible for the day to day operation of the OSC.
      Universalisation of Women Helpline
            The Scheme of Universalisation of Women Helpline is being implemented since 2015,
      intended to provide 24 hour emergency and non-emergency response to women affected by
      violence through referral (linking with appropriate authority such as police, One Stop Centre,
      hospital) and information about women related government schemes / programmes across the
      country through a single uniform number (181). Women Helpline will be integrated with One
      Stop Centre Scheme and women in need of redressal services will be referred here. The Scheme
      envisages that the states/UT s will utilise or augment their existing women helplines through a
      dedicated single national number. Department of Telecommunication, has allocated short code
      181 to all states/UT s. So far, women helplines have been operational in 22 states/UTs i.e.,
