Eligibility criteria for prospective adoptive parents

Here are some of the criteria for PAPs (Prospective Adoptive Parents)

1. Prospective adoptive parents having composite age of 90 years and less and where neither
parent has crossed 45 years can be considered for adoption of Indian children. The age criterion
may be suitably relaxed in exceptional cases for reasons clearly stated in the Home Study Report. However, in no case should the age of the prospective adoptive parent(s) exceed 55 years.

2. In case of special needs children with medical problems, the age limit of adoptive parent(s)
may be relaxed by concerned state government.

3. The prospective parent(s) should have a regular source of income with a minimum average
monthly income of at least Rs.3000/- per month. However, lower income will be considered taking into account other assets and support system i.e. own house etc.
