Stop Child Labour

Stop Child Labour
Stop child labour
How would you feel if were asked to do rigorous work for 8-12 hours and treated like a slave?
This is the condition of many Children in India. Those tiny hands work hours and hours just for a one time meal. These children get forced to work not just for them selves but for their younger parts too. A 12 year old boy working at a construction site to feed his younger sister of just 5 years!!! How does that feel to you? It is a shame on our part that we home the largest population of child laborers. It is a normal site for us to see children working in a hotel cleaning desks or children begging at a traffic signal.

I feel it is totally due to our selfishness and lack of awareness that these children fall prey to such malpractices.

These children should be sent to schools and the Government of India is working hard for these children. The Government of India has made previlages to such children like free schooling, taking care of their nutrition etc.

This is a kind Request to all my friends and the people of our country to help this children.
It just takes a few minutes all you have to do is go to the nearest police station and just file a complaint. Inform the police about the place of such occurrence. I'm sure this will not take much of your time.

The Ministry of Labour has already had earlier issued a notification giving three-month mandatory notice. So anybody found guilty will be liable to prosecution and penal action.

Where to complaint?

#Reach to the nearest police station and file a complaint against such malpractice

#Call on 1098(Dus Nau Aath) a toll free 24hour telephone helpline.
