Indeed, Children are the most unprotected segment of the society because they entirely depend on the decisions and action of the others for their survival, growth and over all development. In a developing country like India the magnitude of street children / working children is continuously increasing. Post independence, Government of India passed several laws to ensure the protection of child rights, but the land mark legislation for the CHILD is Juvenile Justice (care and protection of children) Act, 2000, which is based on the provisions of the Indian Constitution and UNCRC. However the main issue is: Are children getting societal and political attention they deserve? And whether the concepts of child rights infused and communicated sufficiently among civil society members? Keeping in view above issues, it is essential that stock-taking is done from time to time in different parts of the country.
