Gandhi wants that every company provides a daycare to its female employees so as to help them raise their children.

The ministry has reportedly written to the corporate affairs ministry and asked them to build consensus amongst all companies and corporates in this regard so they can set up a daycare/creche in view of rising number of working women across all sectors.

The WCD ministry have also engaged with FICCI and CII to help them out and build consensus among industry leaders in this regard.



Not wanting to leave the women in any sector behind, the ministry is moving with greater force towards making it  mandatory across gram panchayats, construction companies and mining firms.
