The information sought also includes details of grants released by the government, number of social audits undertaken by the government along with detailed reports of each, complaints received against the mismanagement of these shelter homes and details of sanctioned staff and current staff allocated for each shelter home.

The move has come after girls were rescued from two shelter homes in Muzaffarpur in Bihar and Deoria in Uttar Pradesh where they were allegedly sexually abused. The two cases have put the safety and security of girls, women and children at shelter homes at the centre of the public discourse.

In the Muzaffarpur case, the owner of the NGO, which runs the shelter home for destitute girls, has been arrested. Nine other people have also been arrested after the matter came into fore.
