Abstract

The world is advancing, with new technological advances, developments, and various laws and regulations established by the constitution. However, the issue of child labour persists not just in developing but as well as in developed countries. The problem of Child Labour is always present in society in numerous forms and practices. However, there is not so much done to absolutely remove the problem of child labour. The future of a country depends on its children so it is the duty of society to take good care of children so that they can become responsible members of society. Ensuring that children have basic rights to education, leisure and recreation, and taking appropriate steps to protect them from exploitation, is a social challenge. India has many constitutional and legal provisions regarding child labour. These legal provisions cover various aspects such as workplace, minimum age, working hours, breaks and medical facilities. Despite so many constitutional provisions and laws, the issue of child labour remains the same. This is due to the insufficient enforcement of the child labour laws. It is hoped that the judiciary has intervened in various child labour issues. It has made some concrete efforts to protect children from the exploitative tendencies of the employer. This issue is important and is considered to require critical examination.
