The principal object of the Juvenile Justice Act is to guarantee that the Children is shielded from viciousness, misuse, and abuse. This will guarantee that if a youngster submits an offense he isn't attempted similarly as grown-ups. The expression "Children in Conflict with the Law" signifies an individual who is under 18 years old interacts with the equity framework because of being associated or blamed with a commission for an offense. A Children can come in clash with the law when he submits negligible offenses like vagrancy, asking, or liquor use, or genuine/appalling sorts of offenses like assault or murder. It is strange that in the same nation, we have youngsters being locked up in jail cells in blatant violation of all procedural and human rights rules, while on the other side, we have feared terrorists attempting to abuse the country's legal system in order to circumvent rigorous anti-terror regulations.” The purpose of this study is to evaluate the juvenile justice system in light of recent events and legislation. The study focuses on the problem of age determination, which is perhaps the most significant loophole when it comes to exploiting a legislation that was enacted with the intention of being child-friendly and following the standards of the Conventions on the Rights of the Child. Juvenile delinquents should not be brutalised in the name of severe action, but neither should severe criminals be permitted to use the legal system and go free. The paper's structure has been represented in this manner by separating it into separate sections. As a result, this article covers the appropriate systems dealing to children in conflict with the law under the Juvenile Justice system.
