Title: The college in collaboration with District Legal Services Authority organizes legal literacy seminar under 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' scheme

BBK DAV College for Women, in collaboration with District Legal Services Authority, Amritsar, organized a Legal Literacy Seminar under Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao scheme to create legal awareness among the students about their rights.

On the occasion, Advocate Saurav Aggarwal addressed the students and apprised them of the functions of District Legal Service Authority. He said that its prime objective is to make free legal services accessible to poor, the marginalized and the weaker sections of the society. He further said that Legal Aid Clinics are being set up even in remote villages to provide legal advice and services to the citizens who are not in a position to engage a counsel and approach the court. He emphasized that women must raise voice against domestic violence and be aware of their rights.

Mr. Kamal Bhatia, a para-legal volunteer, dwelled upon the rights of construction workers and the schemes available to them, such as, free education for their wards, travel allowance, medical and travel insurance. Ms. Raminder Kaur, another para-legal volunteer, stressed upon the need to empower women by educating them about their rights. Yet another para-legal volunteer, Mrs. Poonam Sharma, discussed the compensation which the victims of acid attacks & rape can seek with the help of District Legal Services Authority.

Principal Dr. Pushpinder Walia applauded the efforts of District Legal Services Authority for coming forward and organizing this seminar to sensitize the students and the faculty about the provisions of the laws which have been enacted for the welfare of women.
