India for Protecting its Children

India had now become an International Labour Organisation compliant nation on child labour by ratifying two important conventions, thus, protecting its children from hardships of labour. The two conventions - the Minimum Age Convention No 138 and the Worst Forms of Child Labour Convention No 182 – are related to the elimination of child labour.

• The first convention requires governments to set a minimum age for employment. No one below that age will be employed for work. But, exception is given for work that is light and for artistic performances.

• The second calls for the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labour such as slavery, forced labour and trafficking. It also prohibits use of children in armed conflict. Prostitution, pornography, hazardous work and illicit activities such as drug trafficking are other areas were child labour are prohibited.
