The  Kerala Government has taken the initiative to take over the Janaseva Sisubhavan in Aluva after finding out that children from other states have been illegally accommodated in Janaseva Sisubhavan. 

The children at the Janaseva Sisubhavan will be handed over to Child Welfare Committee (CWC), but the children are not willing to move to CWC, and they are protesting. The government’s move to take over the Janaseva Sisubhavan was thwarted halfway by following the protest staged by students. 

104 children are staying in Janaseva Sisubhavan. According to the new law of the Juvenile Justice Act, such a large number of children cannot be accommodated in the institution for such an extended period. There are many complaints that the children staying in the Janaseva Sisubhavan don't have sufficient documents and certificates.

Janaseva Sisubhavan has 150 children, and the government says only 50 children can be placed in Janaseva Sisubhavan so the other children should be shifted to CWC.

District Collector K Mohammed Y Safirulla said that the district administration would take care of the welfare of children and has already taken possession of the institution. They have deployed Revenue and Child Welfare officers to look after the children at Janaseva Sisubhavan.

The arrangements have been made to provide necessities like food, clothing, education and medicines. The CWC had identified violations under the Juvenile Justice Act and issued orders for the rehabilitation of 104 kids from other states, who were lodged at the institution.
