"Adoption Tax Credit" Petition (Q & A # 3)

Why does India need “Adoption Tax Credit?

Per capita income in India (in 2005 - 2006) as per the Central Statistical Organization (CSO) is Rs. 20,734/-. As per CARA guidelines on costs for domestic adoptions, Shishu Grehs (government funded adoption agencies) can be reimbursed up to Rs. 15,000/- for maintenance and Rs. 9,000/- for medical expenses apart from Rs. 1200/ - towards registration and home study. This means that a child with medical needs could cost as much as Rs. 25,200/- which is far more than the average annual income of an Indian citizen.
