The National Policy for Children (NPC), 1974 was adopted by the Government of India on 22 Aug 1974. This policy describes children as a supremely important asset of the nation and makes the State responsible to provide basic services to children both before and after birth, and also during their growing years and different stages of development.
The recognition of the child as a person with inherent and inalienable rights, made it necessary to revise the 1974 policy for introducing rights-based perspectives to child development and protection. Thus, the Ministry of Women and Child Development in India has taken up the framing of a revised National Policy for Children which aims to cover the full range of child rights.
