New Delhi, May 16 : The Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Labour and Employment, Oscar Fernandes, informed the Rajya Sabha today that the government has proposed to conduct a survey throughout the country to assess the number of child labour.

The government is implementing National Child Labour Projects (NCLP) Scheme in 250 districts of 20 states for the rehabilitation of children withdrawn from work, Fernandes said.

Under the Scheme, children withdrawn from work are provided with education, nutrition, stipend, vocational training and health care, and are finally mainstreamed to regular education system.

These children are kept in the special schools for a period of maximum three years to prepare them to join the regular education system.

At present, approximately 3.30 lakh children withdrawn from work are enrolled in the special schools under the NCLP Scheme.

So far, 3.92 lakh children have been mainstreamed into formal education system under the scheme.

Out of this, 1.36 lakh children have been mainstreamed between 2003-04 to 2005-06.

Fernandes further said that 108 crore rupees were spent under NCLP for rehabilitation of child labour in the last financial year.
