NEW DELHI, INDIA, August 19, 2001: A National Commission for Children (NCC) will soon become reality as the Center is said to be giving final touches to the Commission, which will look into all the problems faced by the children. A Supreme Court or High Court judge is likely to head the Commission, which will be set up on the pattern of India's National Human Rights Commission (NHRC). It will also have six members including an eminent educationist, child health specialist, experts on child care, juvenile justice and child labor and a child psychologist. The Commission will supervise implementation of the existing laws for children, apart from monitoring and evaluating the status of safeguards provided to children. It will also advise the Government on steps to be taken.
