The Ministry of Women and Child Development has sent its draft guidelines for Mission Vatsalya Scheme to States and Union Territories to seek their suggestions.

  • Mission Vatsalya is one of the new triad of schemes along with Mission Shakti, and Poshan 2.0, that aims at securing a healthy and happy childhood for every child.
  • It focuses on Child Protection Services and child welfare services.
  • It is essentially a renamed version of the pre-existing scheme called Child Protection Services.

Objectives of the Mission:

  • To secure a healthy and happy childhood for every child in India.
  • To foster a sensitive, supportive and synchronized ecosystem for the development of children.
  • To assist States/UTs in delivering the mandate of the Juvenile Justice Act 2015.
  • To achieve the SDG goals. 


It will include statutory bodies; service delivery structures; institutional care/services; non-institutional community-based care; emergency outreach services (through Childline or the national helpline 1098 for children); training and capacity building. 


  • Under the mission, the Government plans to partner with the private sector as well as volunteer groups for its scheme for the protection of vulnerable children such as those abandoned or missing.
  • For this, a Vatsalya portal will be developed that will allow volunteers to register so that State and District Authorities can engage them in executing various schemes.
