For in-country adoptions, prospective adoptive parents are required to pay an amount of Rs.1,000/- at the time of registration, Rs.5,000/- towards the home study report and Rs.40,000/- to be contributed towards the Child Care Corpus (CCC) maintained by the agency from where they are adopting their child. This works out to Rs.46,000/- for the entire process.
For inter-country adoptions, prospective adoptive parents contribute US $5,000/- towards the CCC.
This amount covers all expenses incurred to finalise the adoption and the prospective adoptive parents shall not make any additional donation, in cash or kind, to the agency.
