Updated: 10 days ago | PDF
In 2018, HAQ released two reports that looked into the implementation of the POCSO Act in Delhi and Mumbai. While these reports draw attention to important aspects of the law ranging from disclosure of crime by a child to registration of a formal complaint and an FIR, police investigation, timely completion of victim testimony and trial, victim compensation and rehabilitation of children, there is a need for continuous research on similar lines to generate data that can help identify the gaps and challenges that need to be addressed in order to enhance the efficacy of laws. Using technology for research can go a long way in generating real time data analytics and this report is an outcome of one such attempt. There is still a long way to go! Due to data limitations as well as technical challenges, this report is restricted to analysis of implementation of the POCSO Act in Assam, Delhi and Haryana.
