INDIA

Child labour represent a
fundamental abuse of
children rights which are a
violation of various laws.

engaged in occupations that
negatively affect there
physical, mental and
emotional wellbeing and are
below their minimum age for
employment
Today, throughout the world,
around 215 million children
work.

child labour act 1986, a ban is
imposed on employing children

U.P. has the highest number of child
labours

FACTS
According to the Indian census of 2011,
there are 12.66 million working children
under the age of fourteen years in India.


The worlds highest number of working
children is in India. ILO estimates that 218
million children were involved in child
labour in 2004, of which 126 million were
engaged in hazardous work.


The Hindi belt, including Bihar, Madhya

account for 1.27 crore working children
in the country, engaged in both

Employers prefer children as they
constitute cheap labour and they are not

organize themselves against exploitation
