National Consultation on Child Trafficking and Child Labour

A two day National Consultation on Child Trafficking and Child Labour brought together all stakeholders involved in the fight against child labour to deliberate upon the tenets of the child labour law, Child Labour (prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986, which needs to be amended; in terms of making rehabilitation as an integral part of the act, ensuring monitoring and accountability of law enforcement agencies, interlinking the child labour law with other progressive legislations as specified above, making punishment and penalties in child labour cases more severe to serve as a social and economic deterrent etc.
