TEZU: With the objective to reach out to more children across the country, members of the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) will conduct visits for taking up all cases pertaining to violation of child rights. Such benches will be organized at the division-level across India. For Arunachal Pradesh, Namsai District has been selected for the NCPCR sitting.
A team consisting of two members of NCPCR assisted by four officials of NCPCR will be setting up a bench at Namsai on June 21 for taking up grievances, complaints and representations pertaining to violation of child rights.
