Government has taken a series of steps for elimination of child labour from export oriented industries.

This includes various measures taken by the export promotion councils to eliminate use of child labour and also the awareness and monitoring programmes conducted by the Export Promotion Councils for the purpose.

Government of India has taken up this issue of use of child labour in the export-orinted industries with all the Indian Embassies/High Commissions abroad to sensitize them on the issue of child labour and their possible impact.

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.

For the rehabilitation of children withdrawn from hazardous work including the export-oriented industries, Government is also implementing the National Child Labour Project (NCLP) Scheme in 250 districts of the country which include the areas form where exports are being made from the country.

Action under the Child Labour (Prohibition & Regulation) Act, 1986 is initiated against the employers who are found to beviolating the provisions of the Act.
