Childcare homes asked to register under Juvenile Justice Act

At a recent review meeting of the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) in the Kamrup Metropolitan district of India, the Kamrup Deputy Commissioner Dr M Angamuthu ordered all childcare institutes (CCI)s in the district to legally register themselves under the Juvenile Justice Act 2015 and Rules, or face legal action, according to the article. According to the article, the CCIs have 15 more days to register, or else "strong measures [will] be taken against the violators." Dr Angamuthu says that there are currently 14 registered homes in the district, and that the Committee believes that "a good number of children homes" are operating without mandatory registrations.
