"Despite several steps being taken by state governments, the picture is still very grim and disappointing. Complaints are still being received regarding non-registration of FIRs and unsympathetic attitude of police personnel towards rape victims and victims of violence," the advisory states.

The advisory also asked the states to take special steps to curb violation of women's rights by so called honour killings, and other forms of violence. It also asked the states to prevent forced marriages.
