    What are the adoption laws in States? How do I find out about various State laws governing adoption (e.g., consent to adopt; who can adopt, etc.)?

    Some of the statutes which govern the adoption in India are as follows: –
    1. The Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act of 1956 is the statute for the Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Jains.

    2. Guardians and Wards Act 1890 is the act by which the laws of adoption for the Muslims, Christians, Parsis, and Jews are governed.

    3. The juvenile Justice (Care and protection of children) act,2000 is another act which governs the adoption of children in India.
