Govt of India has brought out new guidelines for adoption under Juvenile Justice (Care & Protection) Act 2000. The guidelines have centralised the adoption process through Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA). The new guidelines have been prepared to address three main areas, safety of child through stringent post adoption stipulations, an expeditious adoption process and curbing of adoption rackets that have flourished in the past two decades. However only practical application of the law in times to come will tell how effective these guidelines are.
