Eradicating child labour priority for goverment

Mar '08
Government is committed to elimination of child labour and Government's commitment is reiterated whenever the child labour issue is discussed in ILO conferences at Geneva and elsewhere.

With a view to providing social security to unorganised sector workers, the Unorganised Sector Workers' Social Security Bill, 2007 has been introduced in Rajya Sabha on 10.09.2007.

Child Labour is a complex socio-economic problem, which needs sustained efforts over a long period of time. Considering the nature and magnitude of the problem, Government is following a sequential approach of first covering children working in hazardous occupations/processes.

For the elimination of child labour, Government is implementing the National Child Labour Project (NCLP) Scheme in 250 districts of the country.

Under the Scheme, children withdrawn from hazardous work are put into Special Schools, where they are provided with accelerated bridging education, vocational training, nutrition, stipend and health care facilities etc, before they are mainstreamed into regular education system.

State Governments are the appropriate Government for implementation of the provisions of the Child Labour (Prohibition & Regulation) Act, 1986 for the areas coming under their jurisdiction.

This information was given by the Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Shri Oscar Fernandes in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.
