He was addressing the state level legal awareness programme and felicitation function held by the Commission here.
Thakur said there were several laws for women empowerment and checking crime against them though a lot still needed to be done.
Merely making laws is not enough, but the need is to change the mindset of the society, he added.
Thakur said the state government increased the assistance given under the 'Beti Hai Anmol Yojna' (for girl child) to BPL families from Rs 10,000 to Rs 12,000.
The chief minister also unveiled the logo of the Commission on the occasion.
A cash prize of Rs 11,000 was given to the designer of the logo and Rs 5,100 to the runner up.
Thakur also honoured women achievers in different fields on the occasion.
Speaking at the gathering, the Commission Chairperson Daizy Thakur said such programmes provided an opportunity for women to know about their rights. PTI DJI
