This policy seems to be part of a specific pattern in India given that the Women and Child Welfare Department of the State of Telangana (the "Department") had issued a circular making it mandatory for all governmental and non-governmental organizations having 10 or more employees to register their ICs by July 15, 2019 on T-She Box, failing which there would be a fine of INR 50,000
