The state of Maharashtra has announced its fourth women’s policy, which aims to promote the holistic development of women. Aditi Tatkare, the Women and Child Development Minister, unveiled this policy on the eve of Women’s Day during the golden jubilee year of the Women’s Economic Development Corporation.
