An integrated service centre or a one stop centre for women was inaugurated by Chief Minister M.K. Stalin through video conferencing on the new medical college hospital campus at Bolupalli in Vepanapalli here on Monday.

The service centre has been set up with the objective of providing support for women and children subjected to various forms of violence. The service centre will provide aid to women in the form of legal aid and assistance, medical assistance, support from the police, psychological support and counselling.
