Concerned over a large number of adoption cases pending in courts across the country, the Centre has written to Chief Justice of India on the need to sensitise judges.Maneka Gandhi-led Women and Child Development Ministry has also suggested a slew of measures in order to hasten the legal process.

“Courts are going beyond the scope of Juvenile Justice Act and have imposed several conditions which are not in the best interest of the children and adoptive parents,” says the letter to CJI J S Khehar.

The letter was referring to several controversial orders in the recent past.

Earlier this month, a Madras High Court judge ordered adoptee parents to donate Rs one lakh to a local school.

A district court in Burdwan recently ordered parents to produce a child before it at regular intervals of 3-6 months till the child turned 18 while a family court in Guna asked adoptee parents to deposit a sum of Rs five lakh in the account of the child they were adopting.
