WCD Ministry releases manual for juveniles

New Delhi, May 19 (UNI) The Ministry of Women and Child Development has developed a manual that will take into consideration the living conditions pertaining to the juveniles who are in observation homes or special homes or places of safety in terms of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015. Titled “Living conditions in Institutions for Children in conflict with Law”, the manual has been prepared on the Supreme Court directions dated February 5, 2016, in the matter of Re-inhuman conditions in 1382 prisons, WP (C) 406 of 2013, in which the apex court had directed the WCD ministry to prepare a manual similar to the Model Prison Manual being prepared by Home Affairs ministry. The objective of preparing the manual is to provide guidelines to the states/UTs and other stakeholders which will help them to establish institutions for children in conflict with law and providing appropriate institutional and rehabilitative services to them. It has been framed within the purview of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015 and Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Model Rules, 2016. The manual puts in one place all aspects of the living conditions and other issues pertaining to children in observation homes, special homes and place of safety. It also lays down the processes to be followed by all stakeholders concerned while providing services to children. The manual will enable all duty bearers in these homes and place of safety to appreciate the importance of their role and contribute positively and proactively in the rehabilitation of children in conflict with law living in these institutions, an official release here said.
