Abstract

India's growth over the past two decades has made a remarkable contribution to global human development. Extreme poverty in India has fallen to 21%, child mortality has fallen by more than half, around 80% of women give birth in a health facility and two million fewer. Children do not go to school. These are important achievements for a country that is home to almost a sixth of the world's population, but challenges persist, and India's economic successes have not resulted in an improved quality of life for everyone in the world, especially women and children. Currently, India is home to most of the children, according to the 2011 census, about 13.59%, that is 16.45 crore of its population in the age group of 0-6 years, while 30.76% of the population is in the age group of 0 to 14 years; however, children in rural areas, slums and poor urban families, catalogued castes, indigenous communities and other disadvantaged populations suffer from multiple deprivations related to poverty, malnutrition, access to quality health services, child marriage, poor school attendance, low learning outcomes, lack of sanitation, Hygiene and access to improved water. High levels of malnutrition persist 38.4% of children are stunted, poor learning outcomes only 42.5% of third-grade children can read the first-grade text), vaccine-preventable diseases, and child labour. India Has Greater Responsibility to Children.
