Child Labour: The Indian Perspective

Mamta Rajawat (Author)
Synopsis Child Labour is a menace, it’s a curse, a black spot on the face of our society. Regretfully, the number of working children in our country is increasing every year and that is despite all efforts and claims made by the Government, Social Organisations and NGOs, in this regard. Various factors are responsible for this state of affairs. To a great extent, the economic compulsions of the families of these children are responsible for their plight. Ironically, some employers prefer to engage kids in their units, as they are easily available, more obedient and cheaper in wages. This is a sin and crime. In fact the children, working for earning a livelihood, lose all the pleasure of life and the potential of growth and development. Now, there is an awareness, world over and laws have been enacted and implemented in order to protect children from exploitation in the name of employment. However, unlawful recruitment of under-age workers continues in most parts of the world, particularly in developing countries and shamelessly in India too. This book is a result of intense research and on the spot studies, taking toll of years. Hence, an authentic and comprehensive work on the subject.
