The WBCW has been working tirelessly ever since the formation of the present Commission, and in the past year and a half itself has helped numerous women get help, counselling and relief from the torture or injustice that they were being subjected to.
The WBCW has the PLCC, which does the pre-litigation counselling, for the women in distress. It acts as an umbrella for the oppressed and harassed women. The WBCW also arranges the PMLA (Parivarik Mahila Lok Adalat), with SLSA, to help the women in distress where she can save money and time, while getting a reprieve from legal imbroglios.
