Supreme Court is suo motu examining ways to protect children who have suffered personal loss and trauma due to the pandemic. 

  • In this regard in May the Court directed the Centre to state welfare measures for the children orphaned by the pandemic.
  • The NCPCR and the States were also asked to compile data identifying children in need of immediate care.


Based on Bal Swaraj, an online tracking portal, NCPCR made the following submissions: 

1. Nearly 10,000 children in the country are in immediate need of care and protection. 

2. They include children aged between zero and 17 orphaned or abandoned during the COVID-19 pandemic since March 2020.

3. These children ran a high risk of being pushed into trafficking and flesh trade.


NCPCR: 

Set up in March 2007 under the Commission for Protection of Child Rights Act, 2005. 

It works under the administrative control of the Ministry of Women & Child Development.
