About the Department

The Constitution of India authorizes the Government to take measures for the protection of women and children. In accordance with these provisions several progressive steps have been taken by Government of Karnataka with a view to ensure the care and protection of women and children.
The Department of Probation and After Care Services was established in 1956 and was functioning under the Social Welfare Department wherein focus was on giving services to children and women admitted under various social legislations in correctional institutions. A separate directorate of Women and Child Development was created in 1975, during the "International Year of Women", with the objective of giving the much needed impetus to the holistic development of women and children. The major thrust of the programmes and schemes of the directorate of Women and Child Development is to ensure a state of well being for women and children especially those of the weaker sections of society.

The Department formulates plans, policies and programmes, guides and co-ordinates the efforts of both governmental and non-governmental organizations working in the field of women and child development.
The Department of Women and Child Development has promoted and assisted the voluntary sector significantly in the implementation of the government policies and programmes for women and children.
The focus of the Department is the all round development of women and children and empowerment of women. The activities of the department can be broadly classified into 3 categories
