REHABILITATION OF JUVENILE OFFENDERS UNDER JJA 2015 – Naveet Arora, Sandeep Kumar & Randeep Mann


Rehabilitating juvenile offenders via reformation and reintegration rather than punishment is the primary goal of India’s Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015 (JJA). Major changes were made to this statute to ensure that juvenile offenders get treatment, safety, and opportunity for development, as well as to better address their needs. In order to help young offenders, become productive members of society again, the Juvenile Justice Act of 2015 places an emphasis on rehabilitation programs that include education, vocational training, psychiatric assistance, and tailored treatment plans. In addition, the statute mandates that the district administration examine and monitor the rehabilitation process to make sure it’s working. As a whole, the Juvenile Justice Act of 2015 improves juvenile justice by placing a greater emphasis on restorative rather than punitive methods.
