,exploitation, child labor etc., in all over the world. But Urbanization in India leads to many problems in
our society against children including health issues like malnutrition and high infant mortality rate and rise in disseat burden
and crime against children in India. Children who are living in rural areas have limited access to healthcare, education and
protection. Our country has formulated many safeguards against child in order to protect the rights of children. Diversity of
culture and and disparities in India is a most barrier for working together of goal of translating dream of child rights into a reality.
But continuing violations against children in available reports proved that all these safeguards against children are not properly
enforced due to lack of awareness and loopholes in the legal safeguard mechanism in India.
