World day against child labour

12-06-2021

According to International Labour Organisation, thirty-three million children in India alone are employed in the practice of child labour. Laws pertaining to ban on child labour have been included in article 24 of the Indian constitution. Accordingly, no child below the age of fourteen shall be employed in a factory or mine or in any hazardous working environment. The child labour prohibition and regulation act was passed in 1986. Despite all these continual efforts by the government, child labour still exist. The focus should be on providing free and compulsory education for all children and implementing steps to bring down unemployment.
The students of class XI presented a video against this practice and it was presented in the classes.
