Roles and functions of CARA

In continuatino of my message titled "CARA making a choice of your agency", in the draft guidelines of CARA, under the "roles and functions of CARA", this is what it says:

a) To act as a clearinghouse of information in regard to children available for inter-country adoption as well as for in-country adoption.

b) To receive applications or copies of applications along with requisite documents (as prescribed by the Supreme Court of India in CRL (WP) No. 1171/1982 in the matter of Shri Laxmi Kant Pandey Vs. Union of India and Others) of foreigners desirous of taking Indian children in adoption through a recognized social or child welfare agency known as EFAA in the foreign country or through an organization owned or operated by the Government in that country.
