You can find them in posh apartments, slaughterhouses, teashops, dump yards, construction sites and at rail and bus stations and the number of children working in metros and smaller towns is increasing every year.


Child rights activists and children’s groups say that lack of stringent laws and loopholes in the existing ones are the main reasons for the increase in child workers.

Child rights activist Ms Virgil D. Sami said anyone under 18 should be considered a child. “In many firms, children aged between 15 and18 are employed and abused, physically and sexually in some cases. The age for children should be redefined in labour laws. At present there are different criteria of age for different jobs,” she said.

Chief minister J. Jayalalithaa asserted that Tamil Nadu leads other states in India in eliminating child labour practices and that her government is implementing several pro-children measures.

A nice article. In our organization we follow the practice of visiting vendor's factories and verify whether they employ any child labour. We are having a policy of black listing the vendors who employ directly or indirectly child labour.

Yes... in tamilnadu, its the nadar community is to be blamed for this..
Though they made it rich, and the children (child labour) also became rich later, its cruel to see them employing children ruthlessly in match industries, manufacturing of fire crackers , printing press and the infamous child labour you see in every annachi petti kadais.

one good thing is, they made sure the same children grew up to become yet another biz boy..

brahmins never ventured in to this kinda crime

Police raids on factories in the Indian capital revealed dozens of migrant kids hard at work Tuesday despite laws against child labor.
Police rounded up 26 children from three textiles factories and a metal processing plant, but dozens more are believed to have escaped. Those captured had all come to New Delhi from the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.
"Some of them were working in acid and metal," with the task of breaking down metals and mixing alloys, said Kailash Satyarthi of India's charity Save the Child.
Some were embroidering women's clothing including saris and had been coached to deflect questions from authorities about their work.
"I have just come from my village. I have come here to study," said 11-year-old Samshad, explaining that he was choosing to work during a "holiday." His 10-year-old colleague Samthu, however, admitted he did intricate needlework for the plant.
There are at least hundreds of thousands of children toiling in hidden and hazardous corners of India, including brick kilns, pesticide-laden fields or chemical factories.
In New Delhi alone, about 50,000 children are believed to be working in factories, with thousands more begging on the streets and sorting garbage.
