Children’s Court

Children’s courts are established under the Commissions for Protection of Child Rights Act, 2005 or a Special Court under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012, wherever existing. In places where such courts have not been designated, the Court of Sessions have the jurisdiction to try offences under the Act. The Children’s Court is required to ensure that the final order, on the case related to a child in conflict with law, includes an individual care plan for the rehabilitation of child, including follow up by the probation officer or the District Child Protection Unit or a social worker to ensure that there is no ill-treatment to the child in any form.
