The predicament of juvenile delinquency is as aged as society itself. Juvenile Delinquency is a very solemn and grave issue because it paves its way towards adult criminality. In order to solve the issue of juvenile delinquency, continuous efforts are being made by Criminologists and Penologists. Juveniles are to be dealt with in a very delicate manner different from that of adult criminals, and hence proper care, treatment, and rehabilitation must be given to them so that they can adjust to society and make themselves law-abiding citizens because children determine the future of any nation. Hence, a reformatory approach must be adopted for juveniles and young offenders rather than a punitive approach. The main purpose of the present research paper is to analyze the rehabilitation and social re-integration of children who need to be cared for and protected and also the judicial outlook and the initiative taken by the courts towards the rehabilitation and reformation of juvenile delinquents.
