Five commercial buildings that had for years neglected to take a no-objection certificate (NOC) from the Vadodara fire department have finally been sealed by the authorities.

Prison bank may be started in Gujarat’s four central jails

Gujarat may soon have a prison bank through which inmates of the state’s four central jails will be able to seamlessly transact with their family members. At present the system used is the old money order method; prisoners use this method to send money to their family members or receive money from them. Prisoners usually send to their relatives some of the money that they earn by working in different jail industries. Some inmates receive money from their families to purchase articles from the jail canteen. Inmates earn Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 15,000 every month. Jail industries have an annual turnover of Rs. 11 crore. The prison bank facility will be started in four central jails — at Ahmedabad, Surat, Vadodara and Rajkot. These four jails house about 80% of the 16,000 prisoners in the state. (05-03-2021)

Female cops assist women who face domestic violence

Crimes against women, especially married women, are not unusual. To deal with such crimes the Vadodara city police department has adopted a new method. The department’s SHE team deploys female cops to visit the maternity wards of different hospitals in the city and talk with the women who face  harassment or domestic violence at home. They reassure the women that the police force is on their side and will assist them appropriately. When a woman is pregnant or has just delivered a baby, she needs adequate rest and mental peace. Some women also have to face angry husbands who want a male child. The cops offer to intervene in such matters and talk with their in-laws and husband. If so required, the cops also help the women to file legal complaints. The SHE team members also educate women about their rights and the illegality of sex determination tests. (02-03-2021)
