India is unfortunately the home of the largest number of child labourers in the world. Far more unfortunately this number is continuously increasing. The census found an amazing increase in the number of child labourers from 11.28 million to 12.59 million in 2011 census .
Children toil for 14-16 hours a day in cottonseed production across the country, 40% of the labourer in precious stone cutting sector are children. They work in mining industry in spite of a harsh ban on the same. More than 60% of workers in bangle making industry at Firozabad are children. In urban areas there is a high employment of children in the zari and embroidery industry.
The main causes of child labour in India are poverty ,lack of social security, privatization of basic services like water supply, electricity sanitation in urban areas, lack of quality education, using children as domestic workers .This adversely affects children more than anything else. Laws that are meant to protect children from hazardous conditions are ineffective which really needs improvement.
