Follow the steps for completing your registration Do not pay any additional adoption charges other than what is prescribed in CARA Guidelines
Please upload documents as per instructions Keep away from touts/middlemen. There is no role of touts/middlemen in adoption. They will mislead you to adopt a child illegally

Always make payment by cheque or draft and collect your receipt Through illegal adoption, you may unintentionally become part of child trafficking network. Save yourself from legal ramifications
