   Child labour is the practice where children engage in economic activity, on
    part or full-time basis. The practice deprives children of their childhood, and
    is harmful to their physical and mental development. Poverty, lack of good
    schools and growth of informal economy are considered as the important
    causes of child labour in India.

   International Labour Organization (ILO) states that child labour may be
    defined in a number of different ways, and a different definition yields a
    different estimate of child labour in India as well as other countries. According
    to ILO, children or adolescents who participate in work that does not affect
    their health and personal development or interfere with their schooling, is not
    child labour; rather it may generally be regarded as being something positive.
    Such harmless work includes activities such as helping their parents around
    the home, assisting family or earning pocket money outside school hours and
    over holidays. These kinds of activities, suggests ILO, may contribute to
    children’s development by providing them with skills and experience, and
    help to prepare them to be productive members of society during their adult
    life.
   The Constitution of India in the Fundamental Rights and the
    Directive Principles of State Policy prohibits child labor below the
    age of 14 years in any factory or mine or engaged in any other
    hazardous employment (Article 24). The constitution also
    envisioned that India shall, by 1960, provide infrastructure and
    resources for free and compulsory education to all children of the
    age six to 14 years. (Article 21-A and Article 45)
   The Factories Act of 1948: The Act prohibits the employment of
    children below the age of 14 years in any factory. The law also
    placed rules on who, when and how long can pre-adults aged 15–
    18 years be employed in any factory.
   The Mines Act of 1952: The Act prohibits the employment of
    children below 18 years of age in a mine.
   The Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act of 1986: The
    Act prohibits the employment of children below the age of 14
    years in hazardous occupations identified in a list by the law. The
    list was expanded in 2006, and again in 2008.
   The Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection) of Children Act of
    2000: This law made it a crime, punishable with a prison term, for
    anyone to procure or employ a child in any hazardous employment
    or in bondage.
   The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act
    of 2009: The law mandates free and compulsory education to all .
   For much of human history and across different cultures, children
    less than 17 years old have contributed to family welfare in a
    variety of ways. UNICEF suggests that poverty encourages child
    labour. The report also notes that in rural and impoverished parts
    of developing and undeveloped parts of the world, children have
    no real and meaningful alternative. Schools and teachers are
    unavailable. Child labour is the unnatural result.
   According to a 2008 study by ILO---among the most important
    factors driving children to harmful labour is the lack of availability
    and quality of schooling. Many communities, particularly rural
    areas do not possess adequate school facilities. Even when
    schools are sometimes available, they are too far away, difficult to
    reach, unaffordable or the quality of education is so poor that
    parents wonder if going to school is really worth it. In government-
    run primary schools, even when children show up, government-
    paid teachers do not show up 25% of the time
   The presence of a large number of child labourers is regarded as
    a serious issue in terms of economic welfare. Children who work
    fail to get necessary education. They do not get the opportunity to
    develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and psychologically.
   Children who work, instead of going to school, remain illiterate
    which limits their ability to contribute to their own well being as
    well as to community they live in. Child labor has long term
    adverse effects for India.
   To keep an economy prospering, a vital criteria is to have an
    educated workforce equipped with relevant skills for the needs of
    the industries. The young labourers today, will be part of India’s
    human capital tomorrow. Child labour undoubtedly results in a
    trade-off with human capital accumulation.
   Child labour in India are employed with the majority (70%) in
    agriculture and the rest in low-skilled labour-intensive sectors
    such as sari weaving or as domestic helpers, which require neither
    formal education nor training.
   According to the International Labour Organisation (ILO), there
    are tremendous economic benefits for developing nations by
    sending children to school instead of work.Without
    education, children do not gain the necessary skills such as
    English literacy and technical aptitude that will increase their
    productivity to enable them to secure higher-skilled jobs in future
    with higher wages that will lift them out of poverty.
   In 1979, the Indian government formed the Gurupadswamy
    Committee to find about child labour and means to tackle it. The
    Child Labour Prohibition and Regulation Act was not enacted
    based on the recommendations of the committee in 1986. A
    National Policy on Child Labour was formulated in 1987 to focus
    on rehabilitating children working in hazardous occupations.The
    Ministry of Labour and Employment had implemented around 100
    industry-specific National Child Labour Projects to rehabilitate the
    child workers since 1988
   Non-governmental organisations
   Many NGOs like Bachpan Bachao Andolan, CARE India, Child
    Rights and You, Global march against child labor, RIDE India etc.
    have been working to eradicate child labour in India.
   Pratham is India's largest non-governmental organization with the
    mission 'every child in school and learning well.' Founded in 1994,
    Pratham has aimed to reduce child labour and offer schooling to
    children irrespective of their gender, religion and social
    background. It has grown by introducing low cost education
    models that are sustainable and reproducible. In 2005, Pratham
    was involved in coordinating a child labour rescue operation with
    India's Ministry of Labour and police, when around 500 children
    were rescued from zari sweatshops in New Delhi.

PROBLEMS OF CHILD LABOUR IN INDIA

  • 2.
  • 3. Child labour is the practice where children engage in economic activity, on part or full-time basis. The practice deprives children of their childhood, and is harmful to their physical and mental development. Poverty, lack of good schools and growth of informal economy are considered as the important causes of child labour in India.  International Labour Organization (ILO) states that child labour may be defined in a number of different ways, and a different definition yields a different estimate of child labour in India as well as other countries. According to ILO, children or adolescents who participate in work that does not affect their health and personal development or interfere with their schooling, is not child labour; rather it may generally be regarded as being something positive. Such harmless work includes activities such as helping their parents around the home, assisting family or earning pocket money outside school hours and over holidays. These kinds of activities, suggests ILO, may contribute to children’s development by providing them with skills and experience, and help to prepare them to be productive members of society during their adult life.

UNICEF suggests that poverty encourages child labour. The report also notes that in rural and impoverished parts of developing and undeveloped parts of the world, children have no real and meaningful alternative. Schools and teachers are unavailable. Child labour is the unnatural result.  According to a 2008 study by ILO---among the most important factors driving children to harmful labour is the lack of availability and quality of schooling.

Even when schools are sometimes available, they are too far away, difficult to reach, unaffordable or the quality of education is so poor that parents wonder if going to school is really worth it. In government- run primary schools, even when children show up, government- paid teachers do not show up 25% of the time
