The government is working on three specific measures to help the family of the 23-year old gangrape victim, including allotting them a free flat in the city.
It is reliably learnt that instructions have been issued at the highest level to identify an MIG (Middle Income Group) flat, preferably through the Delhi Development Authority, for the family to move in to.
After discussions with the family through intermediaries, the Centre is also learnt to have asked the government of Delhi to find an appropriate job for the elder of the victim's two younger brothers.
For the younger brother, who is still in school, the effort is to secure a seat in a Delhi college. This is likely to be the most difficult, sources said. There may not be a category under which his case could be pushed; however, government interlocutors would talk with universities, the sources said.
While the necessary approvals are yet to be taken, an in-principle decision has been made at the highest level to go through with the moves.
