Women helpline number in Uttar Pradesh 1090 : Is it helping girls from harassment?

During Bhaiyya duj of 2012, Akhilesh yadav, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, gifted his sisters of Uttar Pradesh, a very important. A 24 hour women helpline number 1090. The promise was made that it will help women of Uttar Pradesh from obscene calls, SMSes and MMSes. It fulfilled its promises to some extent during the initial days of launch of this facility when more than 200,000 calls were received during the first few months most them were attended and counselling was provided to women in distress and the callers making obscene calls. In some cases people were also arrested. But god knows why it has not been that successful as was the expectation form it. Once of reasons which comes to mind is bureaucracy. From the last 2 months the condition is that more than 50 percent calls made by women in distress go unattended due to lack facilities. When launched, the Uttar Pradesh women helpline number 1090 was appreciated by none other than film actor Aamir Khan. He also visited the Uttar Pradesh women power helpline office.

One of the main reasons that more than half the calls goes unattended is due to lack of physical space and manpower. This has left many women in distress disappointed. Naveneet Sikera, who heading this helpline, is trying to expand the existing structure. But she has not head from the Uttar Pradesh home department yet. This women power helpline is functioning form Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar Samajik Parivartan Sthal. They have asked for 5 more rooms to be allocated for this purpose. 20 workstations which was initially allocated for this purpose is proving insufficient. Though the 50 work stations are now working in 3 shifts, god knows why so much calls go unattended.
In its 2nd phase, the helpline was supposed to deal with all internet-related harassment, like posting fake profiles etc. but this helpline is unable to complete even the 1st phase successfully.

So if you are one of the women who wants to register the complaint, you will have to have lots of patience as there is more 50% chance that your call will not be attended first time. So, if you are really in need, you need to keep trying. We will also urge, chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, provide some of his attention towards his dream project and help his sisters of Uttar Pradesh.
