      National Child Labour Project (NCLP)

      Child Labour is a complex socio-economic problem, which needs sustained efforts over a long period of time.  Considering the nature and magnitude of the problem, Government of India is following a   sequential approach of first covering children working in hazardous occupations/processes.   The National Plan of Action for elimination of child labour includes project based plan of action covering families of child labour in general developmental programmes and strict enforcement of the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act, 1986. Government is implementing the National Child Labour Project (NCLP) Scheme in 250 districts of the country.  Under the Scheme, children withdrawn from identified hazardous work are put into Special Schools, where they are provided with accelerated bridging education, vocational training, nutrition, stipend and health care facilities etc., before they are mainstreamed into regular education system.   

       The State-wise number of child labour as per Census 2001 is given in the annexed Table.State-wise Distribution of Working Children in the age group 5-14 years
