Presiding over a meeting convened by Women and Child Development department here, Chief Secretary P K Chaudhery said, "The health card would ensure regular health check-ups of the inmates and follow up treatment."
The meeting was convened to review the welfare steps taken by various departments of the state on the recommendations of National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR).
"The state would ensure the safety, health and welfare of the inmates in the CCIs. The Police department had already appointed child welfare officers in each police station. The names of these officers along with their mobile number would be sent to the Women and Child Development department at the earliest," Chaudhery said.
The chief secretary said that information about the officials will be publicised. The WCD department will also organise workshops for all the NGOs as well as their staff who are running CCIs to educate and sensitise them regarding parameters to be followed for providing services for safety, health and welfare of children, he added.
Chaudhery said the government had also directed all the Deputy Commissioners to ensure registration and regular inspection of all CCIs under the Juvenile Justice Act, 2000 and the Orphanages and Other Charitable Homes Act, 1960.
"They had also been directed to improve facilities in the CCIs with the support of local community. For this they can involve local industries and charitable organisations in their districts," he added. Chaudhery also reviewed the steps initiated by the WCD department for carrying out detailed survey, inspection and registration of all CCIs in the state.
As per the inspection there were 105 CCIs in the state, of which 84 had applied for registration and the rest were being contacted for completing their registration.
On Sunday, the Haryana government had directed all superintendents of police to complete within two days verification of persons employed at CCIs in all the districts. There are 13 women's homes in the state. Four of them are in Rohtak, while two each are located in Gurgaon and Panipat and one each in Ambala, Bhiwani, Karnal, Sirsa and Sonepat.
