Implementation of Law

  • Laws passed by the government have to be implemented otherwise the benefit of the laws will not reach the citizens.
  • It is the duty of the government to enforce the laws.
  • Enforcement is even more important when the law seeks to protect the weak from the strong.
  • To ensure that every worker gets fair wages, the government has to regularly inspect work sites and punish those who violate the law. When workers are poor or powerless, they accept low wages for the fear of losing their job.
  • Through making, enforcing and upholding these laws, the government can control the activities of individuals or private companies so as to ensure social justice.
  • Many of these laws have their basis in the Fundamental Rights guaranteed by the Indian Constitution.

Child Labour - A Study

Census taken in July 2006

After nearly 59 years of Independence our children continue to be the most neglected segment. Statistics reveal that India has 17 million child labourers; the highest in the world. Lack of awareness about the basic rights of a child has lead to easy violation of laws meant to protect and empower children. In homes, on the streets and in sweatshops, children are being exploited by the thousands.

  • 54% of the working children are in agriculture
  • 15% are in construction
  • 18% are in household work
  • 5% in manufacturing jobs,
  • 8% are scattered across other forms of employment.
