A.Dear Sir,
Once made, an adoption order cannot be undone except in an extremely limited set of circumstances. It is possible to appeal an order before it is put into practice, but that is different to revoking an order that has been implemented.

A.Hi,
If the adoption has been done by complying to all legal requirements, then the adoption cannot be cancelled. Valid adoption in India cannot be cancelled under any circumstances.
