Rajya Sabha passes amendments to the Child Labour Act

By Yogima Seth Sharma, ET Bureau

NEW DELHI:The Rajya Sabha on Tuesday passed the amendments to the Child Labour Act, paving way for complete prohibition of employment of children below the age of 14 but at the same time allowing minors to work in family enterprises.

The bill will now be laid in Lok Sabha and once passed it will go to the President for his assent. Following the President’s approval the changes will be notified by the labour ministry.

Following this,  children younger than 14 years can now work in family enterprises and farms after school hours and during holidays. Children working as artists in the audio-visual entertainment industry, including advertisement, films, television serials or any such other entertainment or sports activities, except the circus, have also been granted exemption, provided the work does not affect their school education.
