Normally Father and Mother are the legal guardian of the Child. If there is dispute between mother and father as to who will retain the custody of child, then they can file application in the Court and court will deicde who will be the guardian. While deciding the interest and welfare of the child will be paramount.

In the Event, parents are not alive, then the following person can apply to be come guardian : -
a) The person desirous of being, or claiming to be, the guardian of the minor; or
(b) Any relative or friend of the minor; or
(c) The Collector of the district or other local area within which the minor ordinarily resides or in which he has property;
(d) The collector having authority with respect to the class to which the minor belongs.

Feel free to ask if you have any question
