This act was formulated to deal with the offences related to children comprising sexual assault, sexual harassment and pornography. The act brought a big relief for the parents as it includes 46 provisions that expanded the scope of reporting offences against children which earlier were not covered under the Indian penal Code.
POCSO Act is a comprehensive Act that is enacted to safeguards the interests of children by incorporating child-friendly mechanisms for reporting, recording of evidence, investigation and speedy trial of offences through designated Special Courts. The Act encompasses the child whose age is below eighteen years of age. It defines various forms of sexual abuse like – penetrative assault, non-penetrative assault, sexual harassment and pornography.
