Expressing concern over the increasing incidents of acid attacks on women, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today announced that a system for online monitoring of sale of acid will soon be put in place.

The government has also created nodal groups to watch over the sale of acids in every state, he informed the Lok Sabha during the question hour.

Singh went on to say that, “We are also developing a software for online regularization of sale of acid. It is under process.”

Reiterating the same concern, Minister of State for Home Haribhai Parthibhai Chaudhary stated that the government has asked each state to make sure the acid is only sold to a person above 18 years of age. Also, a copy of buyer’s photo identity card should be taken to track the buyer in case of any unwanted incident.

“Besides this, refusal of treatment for an acid attack victim has been made punishable by imprisonment of up to one year,” Chaudhary added.
