Takshashila responds to Justice Verma Committee’s call

Takshashila has submitted a memo to the Justice JS Verma Committee set up to recommend measures to tackle sexual assault against women today.

The memo calls for the Union Government to conduct annual Indian Crime Surveys to enable informed policymaking. Absence of accurate data is a problem in law enforcement and policy design to prevent crimes, especially those against women. The data available from NCRB do not sufficiently lend themselves to this purpose.

The full Takshashila Policy Advisory memo is available in the Policy Research section of our website.
