Children on account of their tender age and immature mind need special care and protection. Children’s are greatest gift to humanity. Neglecting children means loss to the society as whole. They have certain special rights and legal entitlements that are being acknowledged nationally and internationally. The constitution of India recognized the rights of children for the first time and included several articles dealing with their liberty, livelihood, and development of childhood, non-discrimination in educational spheres, compulsory and free education and prohibition of their employment in factories, mines and hazardous industries. After the Independence of India & commencement of the constitution, children were conferred many rights under the constitution. The Government of India also enacted a number of legislations for the protection of the rights of the children in India. So in this paper focus is on the rights of children and protection which has been provided to them by the constitution of India.
