Do’s & Don’ts

Do’s Don’ts
Only adopt from Specialised Adoption Agencies (SAAs) recognised by State Governments. Do not approach any nursing home, hospital, maternity home, unauthorised institution or individual for adoption.
Read the Guidelines carefully on the website and follow the due procedure. Do not upload any incorrect document, else your registration will be cancelled.
Follow the steps for completing your registration. Do not pay any additional adoption charges other than what is prescribed in CARA Guidelines.
Please upload documents as per instructions. Keep away from touts/middlemen. There is no role of touts/middlemen in adoption. They will mislead you to adopt a child illegally.
For adoption related charges, please refer Schedule-13 of the Guidelines Governing Adoption of Children (2015). Always make payment by cheque or draft and collect your receipt. Through illegal adoption, you may unintentionally become part of child trafficking network. Save yourself from legal ramifications.
