Juvenile Delinquency alludes to the solitary or crime of the youngster (beneath 16 years old for young men and 18 years for young ladies) which disregards the law. In an obvious setting, that equivalent movement would have been delinquency if it was submitted by the grown-up. I have selected this topic because it is much of controversy. In my research, I will discuss the evolution of the concept of Juvenile Delinquency, what influences a juvenile to commit delinquency, and how we can treat them. And The Juvenile Justice Act, 2000 and Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015.
