SC asks Centre to appoint NCPCR member

SC asks Centre to appoint NCPCR member

The Supreme Court asked the Centre to fill the post relating to education in the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR).
Following the submissions made by advocate and rights activist Radhakanta Tripathy and Solicitor General Rohinton Nariman over the issue, a Bench comprising Justice Altamas Kabir and Justice J Chelameshwar gave the ruling.
Rights activist and advocate from Bhadrak, Tripathy in 2010 had filed a writ petition to appoint the member in the NCPCR. “Since the provisions of the Commission for Protection of Child Rights Act, 2005, require such vacancies to be filled within 90 days, the Union Government shall take immediate steps to see that the vacancy is filled within the time prescribed,” Justice Kabir said while adjucating over the case.
Notably, Tripathy is instrumental in providing justice free of cost to about 10,000 families in the district who were deprived basic dues in the execution of various river renovation projects.
