Government has also taken up this matter with various trade councils to ensure that no child labour is employed by the member exporters.

Further, the steps taken by the Government in the carpet sector also include regular surveillance on child labour undertaken by a professional agency, setting up of National Level Steering Committee, formulation of a code of conduct for the various Carpet Export Promotion Councils to ensure that no child labour prohibited by law is employed.
