INDORE : Railway stations under Ratlam division of the western railways are likely to get Child Protection Committee (CPC) if a proposal in this regard is approved by the railways.
The committees have been proposed to be developed at every major railway station of the division. It will be responsible and authorized to set mechanism for care and protection of children at and around railway stations.
Local NGOs like Bachpan and Childline has given a proposal to the railways for setting up of CPC at major stations of the division; however, an official
approval is pending before the railway authorities.
