Newly formed Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir Union Territories will have a separate cell in National Commission for Women (NCW). The Commission’s Chairperson Rekha Sharma said that by the end of this month, separate cell for the new UTs will be created.
Four days ahead of International Women’s Day, Ladakh became the launching pad for the first-ever online training programme Empowering Women through Entrepreneurship. In collaboration with IIM, Bangalore and India SME Forum, the Commission is providing online training to five thousand women entrepreneurs from across the country. Chairperson Rekha Sharma said that NCW chose Ladakh for the occasion, to involve the women in the journey of development.
On the other hand, in the absence of State Women’s Commissions to deal with the women issues in the new Union Territories, NCW is creating a separate cell this month.
Rekha Sharma also appealed to the UT Administration to provide women entrepreneurs with internet facilities or facilitate at a common point to participate in the training programs.
