Childline India Foundation (CIF):

In the Eleventh Five Year Plan, the Ministry of Women and Child Development has proposed the expansion of the Childline service in the country and has visualized setting up a Childline service in each district/city of the country by the end of the plan period. . In order to achieve this vision, there is a need to strengthen, not only the headquarters of the CIF in Mumbai to take up the nodal responsibility, but also expand CIF at regional levels to facilitate easy coordination, implementation and supervision of the Childline service. Under the ICPS, the Ministry would support the setting up four Regional Centres of CIF at Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chennai for Northern, Eastern, Western and Southern Regions respectively. These centers would report to the CIF Headquarters at Mumbai and broadly carry out following roles and responsibilities:

  • Mapping needs and services for children and families at risk.

  • Expand the Childline services to all districts in the states covered by each region.

  • Monitor the Childline service in all districts in the states covered by each region.

In this district Murshidabad CHILDLINE Team consists of three NGOs:

  • Child In Need Institute(CINI), Murshidabad as Nodal Organisation – 03482-261686 / 263624.

  • Palsa Palli Unnyan Samity as Collaborative Organisation- 03483-270119 and .
