Beating their own children will become soon a criminal offence in India. what do you think about it? [Closed]
The proposed Prevention of Offences against Child Bill 2009, which has been piloted by the WCD ministry, is in the final stages of approval and is likely to come up in Cabinet soon.
The Bill says, "Whoever intentionally inflicts physical penalty on a child for disciplinary purposes shall be punished for the offence of corporal punishment." Corporal punishment has been defined as violence, cruelty, inhuman and degrading treatment by any person including the child's family member, school, relatives, neighbours, friends, educational or care giving institutions, prisons and homes set up under the Juvenile Justice Act. Ragging is also covered under the proposed legislation.
