Juvenile Justice Board (JJB)
It has sole authority to deal with matters concerning children in conflict with law. A Juvenile Justice Board has to be constituted for each district or group of districts, and consists of two social workers and a Judicial Magistrate. This is an attempt to bring change in the nature of the inquiry and decriminalize the administration of juvenile justice through the presence of the two social workers.
Once the crime is committed and the child is apprehended, the case comes before the JJB. Till the inquiry is pending the child is kept in an observation home, unless otherwise released as per the law. On conviction, the child is sent to the special home or place of safety.
At present two J.J. Boards are functioning in Delhi.
