In the Indian legal system, the phenomenon of children committing petty theft, burglary, pickpocketing, or begging which may lead to their involvement in more serious crimes, is recognized as "juvenile delinquency" or "children in conflict with the law" (Boman & Gallupe, 2020). Juvenile delinquency refers to the participation of minors in criminal activities, and it is a significant concern in India, as a large proportion of individuals who commit crimes are under the age of 18 (Boman & Gallupe, 2020). This qualitative research based on secondary data aims to assess the effects of rehabilitation programs in juvenile centers, and look forward to various laws for the betterment of Juvenile offenders in India. When children in conflict with the law are placed in correctional institutions, it is important to ensure that they continue to receive education and general knowledge (Fadila et al., 2021). Providing educational opportunities to these children can prevent them from becoming disengaged from learning and help them reintegrate into society after leaving the correctional institution (Fadila et al., 2021). This study suggests that there is a strong need for methodologically advanced treatment efficacy studies that are more exact in their characterization of violence and either primarily target or undertake separate analyses for aggressive adolescents. Preliminary data suggest that some integrative therapies may be effective.
