Introduction

The first central legislation on Juvenile Justice was passed in 1986, by the Union Parliament, thereby providing a uniform law on juvenile justice for the entire country. Prior to this law each state had its own enactment on juvenile justice with there being differences in the way juveniles were treated by different state legal systems. More >>

Conclusion

Juvenile justice has been given some shape with Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children), Act (GOI, 2000). Those dealing with children need to sensitize themselves with this Act. Provisions and problems of the Act need to be understood. Then only, can improvement be suggested.

While judging JJA (GOI, 2000), one should not be just a critique; rather, both sides of the coin ought to be highlighted. The failures, which result in tragic consequences, inevitably attract a great deal of attention and criticism, especially for those centrally involved, and this is often justified. It is also important to know about the many cases in which good results have been obtained and as a result which, many potential tragedies have avoided (Williams, 2002).

Lastly, one should not forget that a juvenile delinquent, could be, nothing more than a poor child caught red-handed in the struggle for survival and he or she deserves an empathic treatment.
