Context: The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has developed an application called ‘MASI’ (Monitoring App for Seamless Inspection) for real-time monitoring of Child Care Institutions (CCIs) across the country.

  • The app aims to ensure effective and efficient inspection of CCIs as provided under the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015 (amended in 2021).
  • It allows unified inspections by various authorities, including Child Welfare Committees (CWCs), State Inspection Committees, Juvenile Justice Boards (JJBs), and State Commissions for Protection of Child Rights (SCPCRs).
  • The Mission Vatsalya Scheme supports the infrastructure and financial needs of setting up CWCs in each district to ensure their effective functioning.
