Comparative Analysis of Guardianship Laws in India

Guardianship is a concept or relationship arising from the natural incapacitates of infants and persons of unsound mind and sometimes other category of persons to manage their own affairs. A guardian is a person who has the authority and the corresponding duty to care for the personal and property interests of another person, called a ward. Usually, a person has the status of guardian because the ward is incapable of caring for his or her own interests due to infancy, incapacity, or disability. Most countries and states have laws that provide that the parents of a minor child are the legal guardians of that child, and that the parents can designate who shall become the child's legal guardian in the event of death.
