Adoption under hama for foreigners

(Querist) 11 May 2018 This query is : Resolved 

I and my wife are british citizens holding OCI(Overseas Citizen of India) card .WeI have registered with CARA as OCIs living in India, completed the Home study and are on the waiting list for a child for adoption.

Meanwhile a couple known to us want to give up their child for adoption. Can we legally adopt the child? Will it be under Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act? (I and my wife are both Hindus and do not have any child.)

In case it is possible to adopt under HAMA then will be able to get the NOC from CARA and the 'Hague Convention adoption certificate' which will be required by us to get the child to UK.
