 Ministry Rejects Proposal to Legalize Non-Penetrative Consensual Sex Among 12-year- Olds

While finalizing the draft for the new child sexual abuse bill, Union Minister for women and child development , Krishna Tirath revealed that The ministry has rejected the recommendation which sought to legalize non-penetrative consensual sex among 12-year-olds.

Responding to media reports, Tirath said, "It is wrong. Any sexual act below 16 years will be an offence, and there is no difference of opinion on this."


Vidya Reddy of Tulir — Centre for the Prevention and Healing of Child Sexual Abuse said, "We have the copy of the draft sent to the states for consideration in which there is a provision that states that it is not an offence for two children who are both above 12 years to engage in non-penetrative consensual sex."

"Everybody makes a clerical error. If that is the case, we want the ministry to send a draft which does not have this provision,"she added.
