APSCPCR team visits Jaipur

ITANAGAR, 11 Feb: Three members of the Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (APSCPCR) – Niri Chongrowju, Ngurang Achung and Jumtum Minga – visited Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan, on an ‘educational-cum-exposure tour on child rights’ recently.

On Friday, the team held discussions with the members of the Rajasthan State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (RSCPCR) on child trafficking, the POCSO Act, child labour, juvenile justice, and the RTE Act, the APSCPCR informed in a release.

The RSCPCR members informed the APSCPCR team that the Rajasthan government has established a specialised, separate government department called the department of child rights, which specifically deals with matters related to child rights.

The RSCPCR also apprised the team of the working of the commission, and informed them that “there is a portal specifically for children.”

The team also called on the Child Welfare Committee members and learned about their role in dealing with a large number of children who need care and protection.

The APSCPCR team also visited a government-run childcare institution, and interacted with the staffers and the children there.
