Legal Advisory Cell
Burn victims, especially women, are not aware that there is a legal framework that can support them to seek justice and protection in different ways. Through legal counsel they are informed about legal protection, awareness, social entitlements, welfare schemes and personal rights. Agni Raksha has the facility of a visiting Advocate who facilitates the Legal Advisory Cell. She is available at the office between 2:00 and 5:00pm Monday to Friday.
Through the Legal Counsel a few initiatives have been made in order to combat violence against women and children. Apart from time to time counselling in the office, it has also been decided by the organization to have a holistic approach towards the issue. One such initiative is awareness programmes which have been organized for various sections of the society.
During the awareness topics such as human rights, various government mechanisms we adopt during our urgent need, State Human Rights Commission, Women’s Commission, filing complaint before police stations, obtaining Medico Legal Certificate from Hospital (MLC) during husband assault, Free Legal Service Authority, duties & responsibilities of protection officer under Demos tic violence Act 2006, legal provisions, to get maintenance, protection from husband and also shelter, women’s rights, property rights etc.,
