Hyderabad, October 9, 2006

Employing children below the age of 14 years as domestic servants either in houses, hotels or Guesthouses will bring in trouble from Tuesday when a State-wide campaign is being launched against child labour in the domestic and hospitality sectors.

The camp is being launched with a formal function at Jubilee Hall in line with the amendments made to Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act of 1986 that will come into force from October 10, 2006. Teams consisting of officials of Labour, School Education, Panchayat Raj, Revenue and Municipal Administration and representatives of NGOs will raid houses and establishments employing children as labour and will be freed and employers will be punished.

The Minister for Labour G Vinod speaking to reporters on Monday said that according to estimates 16 lakhs child labourers working in various places and that 30,000 of them are employed in domestic and hospitality sectors. He said that 16,000 of them had already been liberated and rest would be freed during the campaign. The Minister for School Education, N Rajya Lakshmi said that the Government was planning to provide vocational courses at class VIII to X class levels for liberated children admitted to the bridge courses. Money will be deposited in banks in their names so that they could use it as investment for launching ventures at a later time.
