Concrete action plan required for juvenile offenders’ rehabilitation, says CJI


Cuttack: A concrete action plan required to ensure that juvenile offenders are returning to the main stream through proper rehabilitation programme, Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra stressed on Sunday here while speaking at the State-level conference on Juvenile Justice: Issues and Challenges.

“It is only through proper employment, juveniles with conflict with law and be made to return to main stream,” said Misra adding State government as well as corporate houses will have major role to play in this regard.

Some source of employment is to be provide to them so that there can be a feedback system to see they do not return to crime as many times the juveniles feel that they are not properly looked after emotionally either by family members, teachers and society, Misra added.

Magistrates of Juvenile Boards, police and other officers should not get carried away by their own individual emotions rather they needs to have a rational approach and be guided by parameters, rules and guidelines of the Juvenile Justice Act.
