Good Samaritans to be rewarded soon for information on child labour in Capital

New Delhi: Soon the good Samaritans might be rewarded for providing information to child rights body regarding child labour in the city.

The Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) can come up with the initiative to curb the menace.

According to DCPCR, the file regarding the proposal has been moved to the senior officials of the child rights body and once it gets approved, the initiative can be fruitful in abolishing child labour.

"Though, all-out efforts are being made to make child labour free Delhi yet children involved in the categories of child labour can be seen everywhere," said the official.

Due to various circumstances, children get fragmented during teenage days in their families which forced them to beg, employment and other self-revenue generating activities.

The child rights body further stated that they have got data from a concerned agency which claimed that during the year 2018 till October, 46 rescue operations have been conducted in which 645 child labours were rescued.

Thus, it is evident that the number of rescue operations carried out in Delhi has been lesser. "Due to lack of proper coordination among stakeholders, awareness about labour has been some of the reasons behind child labour," said DCPCR.

Another problem for the same has been a lack of incentive on the part of NGOs/ individuals and other civil society organisations functioning in the city.

The official claimed that commission with the upcoming project will be reaching to Delhiites to curb child labour. Documents related to the project claimed that incentive should be paid to NGO/individual or civil society organisations for facilitating DCPCR in the child rescue operation. Roop Sudesh Vimal member of DCPCR did not disclose much about the initiative.

"Efforts are going on to curb the menace. We have also started mapping the places where child labour prevails," said Vimal.
