ALTERNATIVE SANCTIONS FOR JUVENILES UNDER THE JJA AND JJCPA

Under the JJA, the JJB may allow the juvenile in conflict with the law to go home after he or she was admonished, or it may order payment of a fine if the juvenile was 14 years of age and earns money. Otherwise, his or her parents or guardians will be ordered to pay the fine. Less punitive sanctions include participation in group counseling and community service.

The 2015 JJCPA has allowed the Board to pass the following orders:

  • (1) Release the child after admonition after advice of the child and his/her parents.
  • (2) Direct the child and his/her parents to participate group in counseling.
  • (3) Order the child or parents to pay fine.
  • (4) Order the child to perform community service.
  • (5) Order the child to be released on probation and under the care and supervision of a parent or guardian or a โ€œfitโ€ facility.
  • (6) Order the child to attend school, vocational training, and therapy.
  • (7) Order the child to attend de-addiction program (The Gazette of India 2016).
