Rajasthan state human rights commission chairperson Justice Prakash Tatia on Saturday sought public views on the rights of women and children under live-in relationships.
He has allocated two months for receiving the views and suggestions of the people on the issue.
“I believe that this was an important issue affecting the society and opportunity should be given to the people to provide their suggestions and opinions on this issue,” he said.
Suggestions and opinions can be submitted either on the commission’s website or send by post to its Jaipur office.
The commission will proceed with a detailed report on the basis of these suggestions and submit the same to the central government to help it in policy decisions or formation of a law.
There was no dignity associated with the women and children born out of this relationship under the laws of ‘Live-in Relationship’, which was given recognition under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2006, Tatia said.
The chairperson was of the view that much was required to be done in this direction to safeguard the interests and rights of these women and their children.
He informed that the commission has registered one case by taking a suo motto cognisance considering it to be a matter of humanity.
