The 2020-21 union budget was silent on the serious issue of child protection even as the country witnessed rise in cases of violence and crime against children, Save the Children, a global non-profit organisation observed. The NGO, which works for children in 120 countries including 19 states in India said children needed a greater centrality in the union budget speech, while recognising the focus on women, SC, ST and OBC.

Pointing out that allocation for the National Child Labour Project was not adequate, the NGO said the new budget allocated Rs. 120 crore compared to Rs 100 crore in 2019-20. It was Rs 120 crore in 2018-19. Click here to read more.
