Foreword The Union Territory Child Protection Society (UTCPS) has been established under the Integrated Child Protection Scheme (ICPS) of Ministry of Women and Child Development, GOI, which aims to provide a protective environment for all children enabling them to lead a safe, secure and well protected life. ICPS also speaks about establishing quality and prescribed standards for care and protection of children to which all protection services, should adhere comprising physical infrastructure, human resource requirements, as well as protocols and guidelines for services and operational manuals for stake holders. The UTCPS also ensures improvement and expansion of services for children in need of care and protection and children in conflict with law. Following the above goals, Union Territory Child Protection Society has undertaken an initiative to prepare a comprehensive Child Protection Compendium which comprises Standardized Operating Procedures (SOP) for stakeholders in Chandigarh to ensure effective and improved implementation of the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015 and other legislative provisions for the safety and welfare of children. Comprehensive modules have been prepared on procedures mandated and advised under the Juvenile Justice Act 2015, child centric legislation like POCSO 2012, RTE 2009, CPCR Act 2005, Child Labour and others for better understanding and implementation thereof. The compendium incorporates the perspective of child protection by providing a safety net to children of Chandigarh and strengthening protection structures by laying down clear response mechanisms, roles and responsibilities as well as the normative framework which underpins the whole subject of child rights and protection. This laudable initiative was spearheaded and helmed by Ms Bhawna Garg, IAS, Secretary, Social Welfare and Ms Nishu Singal, HCS, Director Social Welfare Women and Child Development, Chandigarh. The keystone value which imbues this effort is to ensure the best interest of the child, as the central principle of the Child Protection and Juvenile Justice. In this regard a committee was formed under the overall guidance of Dr. Monica M. Singh, Senior Assistant Professor, Centre for Social Work, Panjab University, Chandigarh to be assisted by Mr. Neil Roberts, Chairperson, Child Welfare Committee, Chandigarh and Ms. Sangita Vardhan, Chairperson, Vatsal Chaya, Chandigarh to undertake this challenging and worthy task. Union Territory Child Protection Society team was led by Ms. Bisman Ahuja, Program Manager, UTCPS with Ms Tabhsum Khan, Program Officer (JCL), Ms Pooja Pande, Program Officer (CNCP) and Ms Preeti Sainni, Program Officer (SARA) working on different assigned modules.

Research Scholar Ms. Anupama Bharti (Panjab University) and Ms. Mehak Gandhi (MSW Student, IGNOU ) were also invited for general research and specific Modules of Drug Abuse and Physical Abuse respectively. The CPWG thus formed, well represented the domain of Child Rights and Child Protection by having members drawn from Social Work academicians, Social Work practitioners, government personnel, Statutory Child Rights Bodies and Non-Governmental organisations working in the field of child rights and development under the overall stewardship of Administrative Secretary Social Welfare who acted as the team leader and oversaw every detail ably assisted by Director Social Welfare. The methodology followed was participatory and the first draft of the SOP'S were shared with primary stakeholders from the Department of Health, Police, Education, Child Welfare Committee, Juvenile Justice Board, State Legal Services Authority, Women and Child Helpline, staff of child care institutions and Representatives of NGO'S. Their feedback was sought and included and this enhanced the quality of role identification and process of documentation. The participation and constant inputs from Special Juvenile Police Unit, Department Of Labour, officials of Child Care Institutions and State Legal Services Authority brought value to this process. In the initial phase, the four modules started were related to procedures for orphan and abandoned children vis a vis adoption, child sexual abuse, child labour and procedures for apprehension of children in conflict with law. The process was completed through preparation of a basic framework, role identification, stakeholder feedback & detailing of procedures as per principles of Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of children) Act, 2015 and relevant legislations. Subsequently, more child protection issues were taken up and modules on Children with disabilities, children facing physical abuse, drug abuse, procedures for staff of child care institutions and a child protection advisory for schools were prepared. Each module contains standard operating procedures(SOP'S) includes definitions, frequently asked questions, legislative framework, role of stakeholders and detailed step wise procedures for the reporting, rescue and rehabilitation of children in need of care and protection/conflict with law, including institutional and non-institutional services and formats /forms necessary for each specific procedure. The broader vision of the compendium is to ensure that Child Protection becomes a sustained focus in Chandigarh particularly amongst stakeholders within government and without who are dealing with children , like statutory bodies, services, institutions, NGO's, etc. and that the objective of safeguarding children, furthering their welfare and wellbeing is strongly translated into both policy and practice. Shri Parimal Rai, I.A.S. Adviser to the Administrator U.T. Chandigarh

Message Children are vulnerable because they depend upon adults for the realization of their rights and it is essential that that we do whatever we can to ensure their protection. While holding a charge which directly impacts their welfare this solemn responsibility has been a priority for me . As the world around us keeps rapidly changing , our children increasingly remain exposed to old as well as new risks to their health , safety and well being. In a quest to achieve the best possible implementation of child centric programs and laws in Chandigarh the idea to put together a compendium on child protection came up in the month of May, 2016. A Child protection Working Group was formed with Ms Bismun Ahuja Program Manager and Ms Pooja Pande, Ms Preeti Sainni, Ms Tabhsum Khan Program Officers of U.T.C.P.S. Chandigarh and Dr Monica M. Singh Sr.Asst. Professor Department of Social Work,Mr Neil Roberts, Chairperson, Child Welfare Committee , Chandigarh, Ms Sangita Vardhan , Chairperson ,Vatsal Chaya Trust . A timeline of two months was set up and the work was begun. The constant aim was to lay down Standard Operating Procedures for each category of children in the ambit of the Juvenile Justice (Care & Protection)Act, 2015 , POCSO, 2012, Child Labor Act , 1986,Right To Education Act 2009,Child Marriage Act , Mental Health, ICPS and Draft National Plan of Action for Children 2016. In addition to the procedures the normative framework and relevant information of each issue like child labor, children in conflict with law, non-institutional care, children in Chandigarh child care institutions children with special needs, children facing physical, sexual or substance abuse and children 's safety in schools was included in concise but informative segments. Primary stakeholders from different departments like the Assistant Labor Commissioner, Education, State Legal Services Authority, J.J. Board, Child Care Institutions were also involved in the process to gain valuable feedback on actual functioning on the ground both for the Compendium as well as the film script. It was felt by the group that with the current culture of social media an audio video module would bring an interest and value to the project and so a short film training module was started. I am happy to say that along with the Compendium the film is also ready for release and I would like express my gratitude to Mr Amit Chandpuri, the Film Director for working within a tight time frame and repeated editing of the script . The Child Protection Working Group has worked tirelessly over the last 3 months , with almost daily and long meetings , even on weekends. I would like to express my appreciation to U.T.C.P.S team for their dedicated work, Dr Monica for bringing in her academic knowledge, Mr Neil Roberts and Ms Sangita Vardhan for their practical experience and experience in the domain of child rights and child protection and to all those who contributed to this worthy task. For me it has been a very sensitizing and learning experience which will remain with me. Amidst the daily rush of routine and multiple portfolios this has been a refreshing and fulfilling experience .I sincerely hope that it will be of great value and benefit to all , within government and without. Bhawna Garg,I.A.S. Secretary, Social Welfare Department, Women & Child, Chandigarh Administration

Having said that institution is the last resort, the child goes through anxiety, apprehensions and various kinds of traumas and reaches to the last resort i.e. institutionalization. It needs an enabling, welcoming and sensitive environment to receive the child within an institution. At times, the degree of child’s anxiety and traumatic condition to go back to the system which lacks her/is care and protection, much profound, that the behaviour needs to be handled with utmost sensitivity and care in terms of dealing with issues faced by the child. Each stakeholder in an institution should strive to bring back the child to normalcy and a simultaneous plan of her/is development as an individual who can be repatriated to the society again needs a due diligence in terms of planning, implementing and timely reviewing the same.

CHAPTER 5 REHABILITATIVE PROCESS 1. RESTORATION - PREPARING A CHILD FOR RESTORATION PROCESS The best interest of the child has its base in family being the best place for child’s overall development. Children are institutionalized due to a sudden collapse of support system which enables the child to develop and advance socially, psychologically, academically and professionally as a societal human being. Collapsing of support systems can be temporary or for a prolonged period depending on which the child’s repatriation to support system and enabling environment should be based upon. Institution has to constantly look up for the enabling system through which the child can be repatriated to the society from where s/he comes. There are options that the child can go back to family which was dysfunctional for a time being for child’s overall care and protection. Besides this when the environment which is dysfunctional for a child and can take a prolonged period to get back to normalcy, various non-institutional services such as adoption, fostercare and sponsorship can be availed. While choosing these options a due diligence is to be kept towards child’s preparedness in availing these options consciously and with a positive acceptance. For this the institution has to offer timely and periodically services of counseling, therapeutic (at psychological and psychiatric level) to the child on need basis and has to deal with various apprehensions and doubts of child in an utmost sensitive manner. The stakeholders in the institution should strive to be more vigilant and extremely receptive towards the doubts, fears, anxieties expressed by the child and to clear them with more positive attitude by making the child consciously realizing her/is capabilities and potential to achieve the best out of it. A non-judgmental attitude though a child centric perspective is inevitable to prepare a child for restoration and linking her/him to other non-institutional services. It is said that institution is the last resort for the child and that child to get a family with a caring and protecting environment is her/is social, psychological and legal right which should be the supreme motto of the stakeholders giving services in the institution. A. Preparation to restoration of child to 

Family: A proper care should be taken by a Welfare Officer to prepare a child for restoration within a family. It can be a foster family or the child’s own family depending on which the interaction techniques with child should be devised. When the child is restored in family, it is the family members who also have apprehensions and doubts in a same way a child who is restored to that family has. The interaction with child and family members should be done with an objective of making the child comfortable to accept the family members and vice versa.



Kinship: A due diligence be given while restoration of a child to any of her/is kinship in terms of regular follow up and assessment of the progress report of the child submitted by the Welfare Officer in form of post release followup should be there. The need for continuous assessment arises from the point that if a child feels uncomfortable or does not want to stay with kins at any point of time, the same is immediately addressed by the concerned stakeholders in terms of best interest of the child.



Child labour: The child who has come under child labour category should be provided care and protection along with the educational aspect which is found missing in most of the child labour cases. All the stake holders such as AHTU, Labour Department, UTCPS, DCPS should take appropriate action as prescribed under the laws related to child labour in India in terms of issuing a challan and payment of at least minimum wages to the child who has worked as it’s his/her legal right to get it. A constant effort should be made to create awareness on the issue in order to minimise it. Before restoring a child under child labour category, The Child Welfare Committee should thoroughly go through all the required documents that are produced by the claimant of the child

33 | P a g e

and that a strict instruction should be given not to indulge the child in any form of labour in future till s/he attains 18 years of age. 

Child beggar: The child who has come under begging category should be provided care and protection along with addressing his immediate needs like medical, rehabilitation from drug abuse, basic amenities of food, clothing and shelter etc. In most of the begging cases the child’s educational, and personal development is hampered as a result of drug abuse, poverty, scarcity of necessities etc.

2. SPONSORSHIP In all Sponsorship procedures, the best interests of the child shall be the paramount consideration. The fundamental principle behind the guidelines for sponsorship for children under ICPS, is every child’s right to grow up in a family. In accordance with the child’s age level of development, he/she has the right to be consulted and to have his/her opinion taken into account in any other matter or procedure affecting him/her. Sponsorship: Sponsorship is the provision of supplementary support to families to meet medical, nutritional, education and other needs of their children with a view to improving their quality of life. It is a conditional assistance to enable children who were at risk from being removed from school and sent for work, to continue their education. Types of Sponsorship  

The care plan has to be prepared on the basis of home visits ad detailed interviews of the parents and the child, and should include the needs of the child and the nature of difficulties faced by the biological family which

 





Systematically observe and accurately record the varying aspects of a situation. Always approach your field study with a detailed plan about what you will observe, where you should conduct your observations, and the method by which you will collect and record your data. Continuously analyze your observations. Always look for the meaning underlying the actions you observe. Ask yourself: What's going on here? What does this observed activity mean? What else does this relate to? Note that this is an on-going process of reflection and analysis taking place for the duration of your field research. Keep the report’s aims in mind while you are observing. Recording what you observe should not be done randomly or haphazardly; you must be focused and pay attention to details. Enter the observation site [i.e., "field"] with a clear plan about what you are intending to observe and record while, at the same time, being prepared to adapt to changing circumstances as they may arise. Consciously observe, record, and analyze what you hear and see in the context of a theoretical framework. This is what separates data gatherings from simple reporting. The theoretical framework guiding your field research should determine what, when, and how you observe and act as the foundation from which you interpret your findings.

Notes

Notes

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (U.N.C.R.C.) is the most rapidly and widely ratified international human rights treaty in history. It changed the way children are viewed and treated – as human beings with a distinct set of rights. The unprecedented acceptance of the Convention clearly shows a wide global commitment to advancing children's rights. India is a signatory and ratified the U.N.C.R.C. in 1992.

Article 1 (Definition of the child): The Convention defines a 'child' as a person below the age of 18,unless the laws of a particular country set the legal age for adulthood younger. Article 2 (Non-discrimination): No child should be treated unfairly on any basis. Article 3 (Best interests of the child): The best interests of children must be the primary concern in making decisions that may affect them. This particularly applies to budget, policy and law makers. Article 4 (Protection of rights): Governments have a responsibility to take all available measures to make sure children's rights are respected, protected and fulfilled. When countries ratify the Convention, they agree to review their laws relating to children. Article 5 (Parental guidance): Governments should respect the rights and responsibilities of families to direct and guide their children so that, they learn to use their rights properly. It does place on government the responsibility to protect and assist families in fulfilling their essential role as nurturers of children. Article 6 (Survival and development): Children have the right to live. Governments should ensure that children survive and develop healthily. Article 7 (Registration, name, nationality, care): All children have the right to a legally registered name, recognized by the government. . Article 9 (Separation from parents): Children have the right to live with their parent(s), unless it is bad for them. Article 12 (Respect for the views of the child): When adults are making decisions that affect children, they have the right to say what they think should happen and have their opinions taken into account. Article 12 (Respect for the views of the child): When adults are making decisions that affect children, children have the right to say what they think should happen and have their opinions taken into account. Article 13 (Freedom of expression): Children have the right to get and share information, as long as the information is not damaging to them or others. In exercising the right to freedom of expression, children have the responsibility to also respect the rights, freedoms and reputations of others. Article 14 (Freedom of thought, conscience and religion): Article 17 (Access to information; mass media): Article 18 (Parental responsibilities; state assistance): Both parents share responsibility for bringing p their children, and should always consider what is best for each child. Article 19 (Protection from all forms of violence): Children have the right to be protected from being hurt and mistreated, physically or mentally. Governments should ensure that children are properly cared for and protect them from violence, abuse and neglect by their parents, or anyone else who looks after hem. Article 20 (Children deprived of family environment): Children who cannot be looked after by their own family have a right to special care and must be looked after properly, by people who respect their ethnic group, religion, culture and language. Article 21 (Adoption): Children have the right to care and protection if they are adopted or in foster care. the first concern must be what is best for them. Article 23 (Children with disabilities): Children who have any kind of disability have the right to special care and support, as well as all the rights in the Convention, so that they can live full and independent lives. Article 24 (Health and health services): Children have the right to good quality health care – the best health care possible – to safe drinking water, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment, Governments should help families and guardians who cannot afford to provide this, particularly with regard to food, clothing and housing. Article 28 (Right to education): All children have the right to a primary education, which should be free. Wealthy countries should help poorer countries achieve this right. Discipline in schools should respect children's dignity. Any form of school discipline should take into account the child's human dignity. Therefore, governments must ensure that school administrators review their discipline policies and eliminate any discipline practices involving physical or mental violence, abuse or neglect. The Convention places a high value on education. Article 29 (Goals of education): Children's education should develop each child's personality, talents and abilities to the fullest. It should encourage children to respect others, help them learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect the rights their parents, and education should aim to develop respect for the values and culture of their parents. Article 32 (Child labour): The government should protect children from work that is dangerous or might harm their health or their education. While the Convention protects children from harmful and exploitative work, there is nothing in it that prohibits parents from expecting their children to help out at home in ways that are safe and appropriate to their age. If children help out in a family farm or business, the tasks they do be safe and suited to their level of development and comply with national labour laws. Children's work should not jeopardize any of their other rights, including the right to education, or the right to relaxation and play. Article 33 (Drug abuse): Governments should use all means to protect children from harmful drugs and from being used in the drug trade. Article 34 (Sexual exploitation): Governments should protect children from all forms of sexual exploitation and abuse. This provision in the Convention is augmented by the Optional Protocol on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography. Article 35 (Abduction, sale and trafficking): The government should take all measures possible to make sure that children are not abducted, sold or trafficked. Article 37 (Detention and punishment): No one is allowed to punish children in a cruel or harmful way.
