Social Justice & Empowerment
The Department of Social Justice is mandated to work towards the mainstreaming of the disadvantaged and marginalized sections of the society such as senior citizens, persons with disabilities, victims of substance abuse and children in need of care and protection. A large section of population have been and continue to be socially, educationally and economically backward. The historical social reality confirms that they need justice, - Justice in a holistic perspective of educational development, economic advancement and social empowerment.
The Department seeks to make meaningful intervention in the lives of persons belonging to:
- Differently Abled
- Children in Need of Care and Protection
- Senior Citizens
- Alcohol & Substance (Drug) Dependents
Through the various Social Justice and empowerment schemes, the department empowers the persons belonging to these groups who have historically been either on the fringes of the society or are in danger of being marginalized due to various socio-economic forces.
