Your kind act of adopting a child should not land you in trouble. This is what you need to know:

* On finding an abandoned or orphaned child, you can call childline at 1098. This helpline has been made to report abandoned children.

*You can also take the child to any nearby Specialised Adoption Agency. The agency is responsible to work on the adoption process.

The process begins when the agency receives a child. The child Welfare Committee comes into play here which enquires about the relatives of the child. Only after making sure that no relative is ready to take care of the child, the committee declares the child to be legally independent to be adopted by someone.

After this, only those parents who have been verified by Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA), the police and social workers can take the child. The parents can register for adoption at CARA.
