Adoption
Can someone adopt a child abandoned on the roadside?
I have found a baby on road side, can I adopt the same child?

No, you cannot adopt the same child directly, as the child has to be produced before the Child Welfare Committee (CWC) and information has to be sent to the local police for legal proceedings as per Juvenile Justice Act.
