The women’s panel has decided to seek suggestions from the public and experts in the matter so as to expand its knowledge base as well as learn from field experiences, read the statement.

DCW chief Swati Maliwal is part of an expert committee on NRI marriages and disputes set up by the Government. The government set up the panel after it had received several complaints about women being abandoned by their NRI husbands.
