Subject: Problem of Child Labour
Through this column of your esteemed newspaper, I would like to draw the attention of the concerned authorities and people of India towards the social evil of child labour in our society. It refers to the employment of children in any industry or work, especially when illegal or considered exploitative. They are hired for work easily because child labour is available at very low wages. Poverty is the major cause of child labour. Poor parents send their children to work so that they can earn their livelihood themselves since they do not have enough money to fulfil the necessities of their children. It deprives children of their childhood and is very harmful to their physical and mental development. No healthcare facilities are available to them. They have to work for long hours to support large families.
Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986 bans the children whose age is below 14 years to work in any industry or business. But it is not being followed by the people of India. To eliminate child labour from the society, the government of India has to make strict laws and regulation and ensure its implementation in every region and industry including domestic help. People should be made aware of this social evil. Everyone should make sure that he does not employ any child in any work.
I hope this letter will prove to be an eye-opener to the concerned authorities and society.
