Rights panel chief cautions against social media posts about orphaned children



National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) chairperson Priyank Kanoongo has cautioned against social media posts seeking help or donations for children, who may have lost their parents to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"People must understand the procedure. Right now, the need of the hour is to ensure that the children must be produced before the child welfare committees. Each child's case will require a different sort of intervention and will be analysed separately. Whether the children are taken to a welfare home or sent to reside with a relative, all will be decided on a case-to-case basis," said Kanoongo on Wednesday.

Kanoongo said adoptions cannot be done without going through proper channels. The Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act also empowers the district magistrates to authorise adoptions.

Kanoongo said the NCPCR has written to states to ensure timely involvement in cases of orphaned children. NCPCR has also called for roping in frontline workers, police officials, NGOs, and even NITI Aayog to help vulnerable children.
