Impoverished children labour on; oblivious to laws

by Ani 2:29 mins

Millions of children in India continue to be driven into labour by poverty, unmindful of the laws meant to protect them while the government sought social participation to stamp out the practice. Working at the ages of 11, 12 or 14 does not come as a choice for these children. Compulsion to feed the family and assist the meagre income of their parents forces the children to start working early. A law prohibiting employing children in homes and in the hospitality industry came into effect in October 2006. There have only been under 2, 000 prosecutions and not a single conviction. But for some people stopping child labour would mean snatching away a source of income from a downtrodden family.
