(a) & (b)  The Nirbhaya Fund Framework provides for a non-lapsable corpus fund for safety and security of women to be administered by the Department of Economic Affairs (DEA) of the Ministry of Finance (MoF) of the Government of India. Further, it provides for an Empowered Committee (EC) of officers chaired by the Secretary, Ministry of Women & Child Development (MWCD) to appraise and recommend proposals to be funded under this framework. It also provides for the concerned Ministry/ Department to seek approval of the designated competent financial authority, as well as of the DEA for funding of such proposals under the Nirbhaya Framework. As per this framework, the MoF through DEA is the nodal Ministry for  any accretion into and withdrawal from the corpus, and the MWCD is responsible to review and monitor the progress of sanctioned projects/ schemes in conjunction with the  concerned Central Ministries/ Departments. Budget allocations against approved projects are made in the budget of the respective Ministries/ Departments through Demands or Supplementary Demands for Grants.

Nirbhaya+Scheme
As such, in accordance with the Nirbhaya framework guidelines, the EC and the MWCD have been reviewing the progress of sanctioned projects/ schemes in conjunction with the concerned Central Ministries/ Departments with the aim to ensure proper and expeditious utilisation of Nirbhaya Fund for improving safety and security of women and the girl child. Further, as per this framework, monitoring and reporting mechanisms are mandated at State/ UT level as well as at the level of the concerned Central Ministries/ Departments. The projects appraised by the EC are at various stages of implementation having staggered gestation periods for completion of the projects.

Further, Hon’ble Supreme Court vide order dated 11.05.2018 had directed all States/UTs to modify their victim compensation scheme in terms of the scheme prepared by the National Legal Services Authority.
