Child Adoption In India

“Adoption” means the process through which the adopted child is permanently separated from his biological parents and becomes the legitimate child of his adoptive parents with all the rights, privileges and responsibilities that are attached to the relationship.

Adoption is considered as the best alternative for children without parental care. Child adoption in India has been a prevalent social practice from ancient times. Earlier the practice was to adopt a child from one’s own family or near and dear ones. Adoption of an unrelated child had its beginnings in the sixties. Professional intervention of child welfare agencies in the process of Adoption begin only in the early 70’s. This led to systemization of the procedure so that the best interest of the child, adoptive parents and the birth parents could be protected. We have numerous Legislations governing the process of Adoption in India.
