Expedite probe into DCW appointments’ validity: HC to LG panel


The Delhi High Court today asked a panel, set up by the Lt Governor to look into the validity of appointments in the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), to expedite its proceedings.

Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva said till the committee completes its proceedings and tables its report before the Lieutenant Governor (LG), there would be no clarity regarding the workers appointed by the DCW to handle various women helplines.

The court said that till the committee gives its report, the workers employed by the DCW to work on various helplines be paid their salaries, starting from April 2017, as and when it is due.

The order came on an application moved on behalf of 97 DCW workers, majority of them being women as well as some acid attack victims, seeking payment of their salary for the month of April and every subsequent month when work was taken from them by the Commission.
