      the answer to this question lays about the option for the past judgments and law about the adoption of a minor/child was only accessible to the Hindu community after the enactment of the Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act, 1956 which has only power and rights given to Hindus in general ruling out the other religion’s perspective in the matter of Guardianship and Adoption. The Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection) Act of 2000, which was last updated in 2015 ways to assign a secular adoption law for every citizen of India. It was done to govern and liberate a law for both in-country and intra-country adoption which are administered by the Central Adoption Resource Agency, a statutory body of the Government of India having applicable in every state of the country for better governance. This adoption agency follows a complete procedure starting with accessing the family ending with finally signed for the foster agreement. According to Section 61(2) of the Juvenile Justice Act, all processes must be held in private and concluded within two months after filing. One advantage levied on the district magistrate will be able to administer the trial process over the cases filed more efficiently respond to the matter since he has power to the decision being more familiar with all of the departments as it comes in his jurisdiction.
