The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Amendment) Bill - 2019 was introduced in the Rajya Sabha today.

The Bill seeks to amend the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act- 2012 which will make punishment more stringent for committing sexual crimes against children including death penalty.

The amendments also provide for levy of fines and imprisonment to curb child pornography.

The amendment is expected to discourage the trend of child sexual abuse by acting as a deterrent due to strong penal provisions incorporated in the Act.

It intends to protect the interest of vulnerable children in times of distress and ensures their safety and dignity. The Bill was introduced by Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani.
