Why Christians can not get adoption court decree in Gujarat? Who can and will make change in "Christian Act" for adoption? In India Christian and Muslims are not getting court decree for private adoption. Christian leaders including Bishop in Gujarat are not aware about this law. While Hindu lawyer and American Consulate are well aware about this law. Therefore, many NRIs are getting hard time in adoptions.

This is with reference to the legal problem raised with regard to the adoption of children. Yes, there is the Central act called Juvenile justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act 2000, enacted by the Indian Parliament. According to the Juvenile Justice (Care and protection of children) Amendment Act 2006, under the amended Section 41 of the Principal Act, adoption of the children who are orphan, abandoned or surrendered may be allowed through such mechanism as may be laid down in the Rules that may be prescribed by the Central Agency or the State Government concerned. Earlier in the Lok Adhikar Sangh Vs the State of Gujarat, the Honorable High Court of Gujarat had directed the State Government of Gujarat to frame the rules under the above Act not later than November 2003. By now these rules must have been framed. The Act and the Rules may be available from the Gujarat Book Depot, Bhadra or some law firms in Ahmedabad.
