It is a legal framework in India that was enacted in 2012 to address and combat sexual offenses against children. The primary objective of the POCSO Act is to provide special legal protection for minors under the age of 18, particularly focusing on cases of sexual abuse, exploitation, and harassment.
Key provisions of the POCSO Act include defining various sexual offenses against children, stringent punishment for offenders, establishing special courts for the speedy trial of cases, and safeguarding the privacy and dignity of child victims during legal proceedings. It places a strong emphasis on the rights and welfare of child victims and aims to create a safer environment for children by prosecuting those who commit sexual offenses against them.
