Adoption is a legal process where all child rights are safeguarded: Smriti Irani

@SmritiIraniOffc
Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Zubin Irani has said that all the rights and privileges of a child are safeguarded during the process of adoption and transfer of responsibilities to adoptive parents are done in a completely legal manner. She was speaking at the National Consultation on Adoption organized by Central Adoption Resource Authority, CARA, a statutory body of Ministry of Women and Child Development. She said, a large number of parents are still waiting to adopt, even as the total number of reported adoptions is less when compared to the figures of destitute and orphan children in the country. Ms Irani urged all stakeholders that every effort should be made to improve the implementation of the adoption programme thereby ensuring the best interest of the children.

Officials and stakeholders from all States and Union Territories participated in the consultations. Major issues deliberated upon were simplification of the adoption process, bringing more children in need of care and protection into the adoption pool and rehabilitation of older and children with special needs among others.
