The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act 2012 was formulated in order to effectively address sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children through legal provisions. POCSO received the President‟s assent on 19 June 2012 and was notified in the Gazette of India the next day.

The objectives of the POCSO Act are:

  • To protect children from the offences of
    • Sexual assault
    • Sexual harassment
    • Pornography
  • To establish Special Courts for speedy trial of such offences.

The Salient features of the Act are that it:

  • Defines the child as anyone below the age of 18
  • Is gender neutral law, wherein the law takes cognizance of sexual crimes committed against both girls and boys under the age of 18 years.
  • Addresses a wide range of sexual offences which include anything from complete and partial penetration, non-penetrative sexual assault, stalking of a child, showing children pornography, using the child for pornography and exhibitionism. The law protects children from both contact and non-contact sexual abuse.
  • Places the burden of proof on the accused and ensures punishment for all perpetrators irrespective of age and gender
  • Does not recognize consensual sexual acts among children or between a child and an adult.
  • Prosecutes any person (including a child) for engaging in a sexual act with a child irrespective of whether the latter consented to it.
  • Provides for more severe punishment, when the sexual offence is committed by a person in a position of trust or authority
  • Introduces child friendly measures and defines the role of the Police as a child protector
  • Pronounces the importance of Mandatory Reporting of sexual offences

Above all, the Act stipulates that a case of Child Sexual Abuse must be disposed of within one year from the date the offence is reported.
