Ahead of World Day Against Child Labour, activists in India slam Government’s proposed amendments to existing legislation

A number of civil society groups, parliamentarians, trade unionists, child rights activists and child leaders gathered today – a day before the World Day against Child Labour — and urged the government to remove the provision to legitimise children working as child labour in family enterprises out of school hours and during vacation, which is now included in the proposed amendment to the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, approved by the Cabinet.
