This article conceptualizes the status of Juveniles in our society and the need for the legislations to keep their pace with the changing needs of the society. The position of Juveniles in India and the various legislations introduced namely: Children Act ,1960 , Juvenile Justice Act of 1986 , Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2000 , Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015 and The Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015 replaced by Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Amendment Bill, 2021 have been discussed with supporting case laws. This research paper also includes a comparative analysis which has been conducted to draw a comparison between the Juvenile Justice System in different countries and the legislations that have been implemented to ensure justice in their society. There is an emerging need to improve the Juvenile Justice system and to fill the lacuna in the legislations. Juvenile delinquency imposes a burden upon the society therefore, effective preventive measures should be taken by the State to ensure social upliftment and rehabilitation of Juvenile’s who are exposed to such offences. Juvenile are not criminals of the society rather they too are the victim of the society.
