This chapter provides an overview of the child rights in India. The Guardians and Wards Act 1890, Child Marriage Restraint Act 1929, Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act 1956, Young Persons Harmful Publications Act 1956, Probation of Offenders Act 1958, Apprentice Act 1961, Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act 1971, Children (Pledging of Labour) Act 1933, and Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act 2000 are some of the provisions that deal with children. Some major policy and plan documents relating to children are described briefly. The Government of India is enforcing about 120 schemes and programmes for the welfare and development of children and women through more than thirteen ministries and departments. The child's right to development is crucial, both to safeguard the right to a future as well as the rights of future children.
