Decision Maker Response

Maneka Gandhi’s response

Jul 12, 2016 — Dear People,

Thank you for asking for something that should actually have been done many years ago.

When I became a Minister, I made a short film called ‘Komal’, about "good touch bad touch". I would like each and everyone of you to download it and take it to your school or your children’s school. Play this film in every school and use it to educate children about safety. I cannot do this alone. All of us need to reach out and be part of the change.

I am also starting an E-box where any child can give his or her complaint about molestation. All complaints will be confidential and action will be taken on every complaint. If you are an adult who knows that a child is being molested, you can also use the E-box to make a complaint.

We are currently in the process of refining the E-box. As soon as it comes up, we will update you.

I would like you to remain updated about the work done by the Ministry. Please follow us on twitter @ministrywcd and @manekagandhibjp page. Please also follow us on our Facebook page &

Thank you,
Maneka Sanjay Gandhi
Union Minister For Women and Child Development
