CARA is an autonomous body under the ministry which regulates adoption of children across international borders. Gandhi also said that the government is trying to convince them to follow guidelines as they are experienced in the field. Gandhi was quoted said, “We are trying and persuading them because they are valuable, good people and have experience. But if they do not follow the central guidelines, we will be left with no option but to derecognise the orphanages run by them and shift the children to other places.”
