NEW DELHI, Oct. 13, 2023 (TBINN)
Terming child adoption a human thing, Supreme Court of India today flagged the issue of great delay in the process and said several children are awaiting adoption in hope of a better life.
A bench headed by Chief Justice D.Y. Chandrachud, which was hearing two pleas including one seeking to simplify the legal process for child adoption in India, said the petitioners have said this process has virtually come to a standstill.
“There is great delay which is taking place in this,” the bench, also comprising justices J.B. Pardiwala and Manoj Misra, said.
