New Delhi: Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi on Friday launched an online complaint box for reporting sexual offences against children.
The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) e-Box is an online complaint management system where victims can file complaints of sexual abuse. The facility is available on the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) website. In order to make the procedure simple, the site also offers pictorial aides which can be used by young children in filing the complaint.
“We started Childline in 1998. Today it receives 14 lakh complaints a month. The e-box is an extension of that. Any child or adult who wants to complain about a child who is being molested can avail of this”, Gandhi said after the inauguration.
NCPCR is also planning to launch a mobile application in near future.
