By way of a Gazette Notification
dated 24.03.2014, Ministry of Women & Child Development of Union of India has carried out certain amendments in The Commission for Protection of Child Rights Rules 2006.
By way of this Amendments 2014 , 5 major changes have been made:
Rule 3A- Norms for Selection of Chairperson and Members
Rule 6A- Invitation of Applications for the post of chairperson and member
Rule 6B- Selection Committee for appointment of Chairperson and Member
Rule 6C- Procedure for appointment of Chairperson and Member
Rule 7(1)- Words " Cabinet Secretary" and "Secretary" have been subsitituted with " Secretary" and " Additional Secretary" respectively.
Striking is this amendment made in Rule 7(!) by which now status of Chairperson-NCPCR has been reduced from "Cabinet Secretary" to "Secretary" and status of Member-NCPCR has been reduced from "Secretary" to " Additional Secretary". This has not come from the Supreme Court Directions at all.
