In order to promote transparency and accountability in the working of every citizens and every public authority, the Parliament enacted the Right to Information Act, 2005.

Introduction:
During the IInd World War, lot of soldiers were died and many were injured, which caused to force difficulties to their families Consequently, Some women became widows and some were became orphans with their children respectively.  Hence there were wife’s of military higher Officials initiated Warfare activities for the benefit of these widows and orphans who were in worries due to IInd World War. Subsequently, this post war activity from Warfare to Welfare for women and Children were taken up by the Government of India. In turn the Department for Women and Children started in the Madras Residency. The Department of Women Development and Child Welfare was created in 1952 in the composite Madras State and extended the services in the Telangana Districts from 1958 onwards. The Department was under LEN&TE Department (Labour Employment Nutrition and Technical Education Department). Later Government of Andhra Pradesh has established a separate Secretariat Department for Women Development and Child Welfare during 1987 to look after the Welfare of Women and Children.  Now Under A.P. Re-organization Act 2014, the Andhra Pradesh State was bifurcated into two States i.e. Andhra Pradesh State and Telangana State which came into existence from 02.06.2014. Telangana is one of the few states where a separate Department is functioning for development and welfare of women and children, having the jurisdiction of ten Districts i.e. Warangal, Adilabad, Khammam Karimnagar, Mahaboobnagar, Nalgonda, Nizamabad, Medak, Ranga Reddy and Hyderabad. 
The broad mandate of the Department is to have holistic development of Women and children. For the holistic development of the child, the Department has been implementing the world’s largest and most unique and outreach programme of Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) providing a package of services comprising supplementary nutrition, immunization, health check up and referral services, pre-school non-formal education.
The Andhra Pradesh Women’s Cooperative Development Corporation established in the year 1975 with T.A.No.693/75 under the provision of section 7, of AP Co-operative Societies Act 1964, has been bifurcated as Andhra Pradesh Women’s Co-operative Development Corporation (APWCDC) and Telangana State Women’s Co-operative Development Corporation (TSWCDC] since 02-06-2014.
