Directorate of Child Rights and Trafficking

Two new Directorates namely Directorate of ICDS and Directorate of Child Rights and Trafficking were created vide notification No. 305/SW/3E (Sectt)-06/15 dated the 20th January, 2015. The main mandate of the Directorate of Child Rights and Trafficking (DCRT) is monitoring and implementation of :

    • The Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act, 1956

The newly constituted Directorate has played a leading role in strengthening ICPS structures in the State. ICPS is a Centrally Sponsored Scheme which was launched in 2009. This comprehensive scheme on child protection has brought about street children programme, institutional and non- institutional care under one umbrella. It focuses on convergence of services like health, education, vocational training rescue, rehabilitation and legal support provided by different line departments. The scheme is implemented through government- civil society partnership.

For effective implementation of the scheme, the State Child Protection Society (SCPS) has been constituted at the State level. The Minister in - Charge of Women and Child Development is the Chairperson and the Principal Secretary/Secretary of the Department is the Executive Chairperson. The officials of the Directorate also function in dual capacity i.e. the Director, Child Rights and Trafficking is also the Member Secretary of the SCPS and is overall in charge of the ICPS related activities in the State. The State Adoption Resource Agency (SARA) is a wing of SCPS and it regulates and monitors alternative care – sponsorship, adoption and foster care. The Program Manager, SARA is an officer from the Directorate.

A number of anti trafficking initiatives have been taken up. The Director of Child Rights and Trafficking is the Member Convenor of the West Bengal Task Force which was established in 2007 with the primary focus being the repatriation of Bangladeshi children, and has since evolved into the nodal body for coordination on RRRI of trafficked women and children within the state, interstate and cross border. Directorate of Child Rights and Trafficking is functioning as the Secretariat of the Task Force, and under its aegis, Operational Guidelines on Rescue-Recovery-Safe Return and Integration of Bangladeshi Children has been designed and being implemented. The Task Force also coordinates the restoration process viz. intra state internal, inter-state and cross border trafficking.

The Directorate and the State Child Protection Society have organised a no. of anti trafficking programmes including an Interstate workshop on Anti Trafficking in collaboration with Save the Children and Joyprakash Institute of Social Change on 2nd and 3rd Feb, 2016 in Kolkata. A workshop for IO investigating the trafficking cases in trafficking prone districts like North and South 24 Parganas along with IO’s from Maharashtra was organised on the 30-31st of August,2016.
