Author(s): Samragyi Sajwan
Abstract:
The subject matter of this paper deals with comprehensive analysis of Adoption law in India. The practice of Adoption is been followed since many decades but the law for adoption came in the 19th century. There are various religions in India but there is no particular Adoption law governing the adoption of all religions. Till now in India there is only one personal law governing Adoption i.e Hindu Adoption and maintenance act 1956. In India religions like Muslims, Christians, Jews and Parsis do not have their own personal law governing Adoption due to which they cannot adopt a child and give him/her his family name they can only become guardian of child under Guardians ND wards act 1890.
The government of India have taken steps to make Uniform law for adoption but there was failure. This paper focusses on Adoption laws which are governing Adoption in India and how uniform civil code is necessary in area of Adoption.
