Over the past five years, UP witnessed death of 170 children in the state-run adoption centres. This figure, revealed as part of data furnished by the union ministry of women and child development in the ongoing Parliament session, is only marginally lower than Maharashtra’s 172 over the same period.
According to CARA, 43 children from UP were adopted by parents located outside India, in 2018. This is ten times more than the number of inter-country adoptions witnessed by the state in 2014-15 -- four.(Representative image)

An inspection of 15 specialised adoption agencies by the ministry of women and child development and the Central Adoption Resource Authority, carried out in January and February, has discovered glaring irregularities.
