“Scrutinizing the arrangements made by the commission is in actuality scrutinizing the work done by the commission. We have chipped away at 11.5 lakh cases, went to 2.25 lakh calls got on the 181 helpline. The commission under its previous administrator had worked just on one case in eight years,” asserted Maliwal. Singh, in her grievance, had recorded names of 85 individuals who she asserted landed positions “without imperative certifications”.

Maliwal said the commission had made new enrollments according to its set systems. “The past commission (under Singh) couldn’t have made such a large number of enrollments since they did went up against one case in eight years. Why might they require newcomers? They selected spouses of IAS and IPS officers to posts in the commission without issuing any open notices. We have archives to demonstrate that. We have tailed every one of the methods in delegating our staff,” said Maliwal.

Reacting to Singh’s grievance, Maliwal had said, “Prior, 42 individuals worked in the DCW, now 80 do. These incorporate three corrosive assault casualties and two young ladies who were vagrants from Nari Niketan. The DCW has named numerous such casualties in posts in the DCW. Every one of the methodology have been taken after. The standards are the same that Singh connected when she was DCW chief.

We have delegated more individuals in light of the fact that our work load has expanded. You can envision that in the event that she worked just on one case in eight years, what sort of pendency the DCW might confront.” Maliwal said that the DCW will amplify full participation in the ACB’s examinations and answer every one of the inquiries raised by them. “We don’t have anything to stow away. We will collaborate completely,” said the DCW chief.
