CivicDataLab and HAQ: Centre for Child Rights have joined hands to use technology for creating such a Child Rights Law Implementation tracker in a phased manner. With support coming through the AGAMI Data for Justice Challenge for the first phase, the focus has been on tracking implementation of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences, Act, 2012 (POCSO Act). The main data source has been the e-Courts portal that maintains information of cases registered in the Case Information System (CIS) by all courts. Other data relied upon for comparisons include data retrieved from the Crime in India reports of the NCRB and data presented in response to certain questions raised in the Parliament of India as well as news reports.
