Kerala high court directs all Family courts to mask adoptive parents' names while issuing the certified copies.

 In order to protect the privacy of parties

involved, the parties name shall be masked while

uploading the judgment. Publishing the names of parties

is prohibited without their consent. We noticed in

certified copy issued by the Family Court name of

adoptive parents is disclosed. Confidentiality of

adoptive parents have to be maintained in public portal

and adoption records under Regulation 45 of the

Adoption Regulations. We direct the Registrar

(District Judiciary) to give necessary directions to

all the Family Courts in the State to mask the names of

adoptive parents while issuing the certified copies.
