The recent figures in the area of child rights shows that total child population in India is 472 million which makes thirty nine percent (39%) of India’s entirety population[1]. Orphaned and destitute children in India are found to be 20 million[2]. Children who found in difficult circumstances are categorized in two categories that is Children who needs care and protection and who are conflict with law[3] and these children placed in custody of institutions where they stay for long period or short period which depends on the recognized need of the child. Children living in institutions or children homes necessitate basic care, health and educational services.
