FAQs about adoption

What is adoption?

Adoption is a process of parenting children who are not related to one by birth.

Who is eligible to adopt?

• Married couples or single adults (unmarried, widowed, divorced) who have a steady income sufficient to bear the family expenses and provide a financial security for the child.

• Those whose age does not exceed 45 years.

• Those who have a home environment comfortable for themselves and a child.

Is adoption legal in India?

Adoption is legal in India. The IPC has two laws under which children can be adopted depending on the religion of the adoptive parents.

1. The Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act 1956 which applies only to Hindus.

2. The Guardianship and Ward Act 1890 which applies to non-Hindus (Christians, Muslims and Parses). A 1996 judgement by Justice FI Rebello of the High Court grants adoption for non-Hindu families who have taken the child under guardianship for over a
period of two years.

How can you adopt?

Adoption can be done only through government
recognised placement agencies, in accordance with the prescribed legal procedure.
