Save children: DCPCR to give up to Rs 10k for info on child labour
New Delhi: Helping the child rights body in curbing child labour can give Delhi'ites a reward up to Rs 10,000 as the Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) had launched the initiative where they will reward good samaritans.
The DCPCR notice accessed by Millennium Post stated that "A scheme of providing the incentive to any NGO/individual or organization for facilitating Child Labour Rescue Operation in collaboration with DCPCR has been approved by the Competent Authority. It shall be for meeting transport & other miscellaneous expenditure by the NGO/individual or organization leading to rescue of child labour. The incentive shall be admissible in case of any such rescue operation which results in the rescue of one or more child
The notice further states that for the rescue of one child there is a reward of Rs 1,000 whereas rescue of two-five children Rs 2,000 is the reward whereas for six to 10 children the reward increases to Rs 5,000.
"The reward for the rescue of 11 or more children is Rs 10,000," reads the notice.
Any claim with all details, documents viz police report, CWC order shall be submitted to Chairperson, DCPCR within 30 days of carrying out any rescue operation, added the notice.
Roop Sudesh Vimal, member of Child Rights Body stated that they have formally launched the initiative.
"After the rescue, a proper verification will follow. The identity of the person who will give information to DCPCR will be hidden," said Vimal.
The child rights body further stated that they have got data from a concerned agency which claimed that during the year 2018 till October has been 46 wherein 645 child labour rescued.
Thus, it is evident that the number of rescue operations carried out in Delhi has been lesser. Due to various circumstances, primarily financial, social, emotional children get fragmented in earlier years in their families due to various reasons which forced them to beg, employment and other self-revenue generating activities.
