Supreme Courts asks the Centre to improve conditions for Widows

Accepting the desperate need to improve conditions for widows in the country, Supreme Court on Tuesday issued orders to the Centre to enhance the state of destitute widows in the country.

The Supreme Court of India bench comprising of Justices Madan Bhokur and Deepak Gupta has asked the Central Government to boost the re-marriage of widows and formulate plans to get them rehabilitated into the normal lives of the society.

The idea of widowhood has a mark of disgrace in this country, and the apex body of justice has advised the Centre to take steps to eliminate the shame, stigma and dishonour attached to this in the country, which has touched so many lives over the course of years.
