The report examines interventions addressing violence against women (VAW) and violence against children (VAC) in the State of Maharashtra. It also provides a brief insight into budgetary provisions existing in local governments for protection against VAW and VAC, potential overlaps among existing provisions, as well as understanding key factors that inhibit the performance of schemes, including convergence across departments in ensuring protection against VAW and VAC.

The study was conducted between August 2018 and October 2019.
