Pages: 110-118
Abstract
Child labour refers to the exploitation of minors through any type of employment that robs them of their youth, prevents them from attending a regular school, or is detrimental to their mental, physical, social, or moral development. Child labour enriches minors and infringes their rights. MGNREGA lacks funding but offers unskilled labour. By utilizing women's self-help groups and microfinance, UBIS hopes to eradicate child labour in rural areas by 2025. Prioritizing knowledge production and evidence translation, rescuing and rehabilitating labourers, and implementing free education are essential. By 2025, governments have to prioritize law enforcement, coordinated policies, and small labour rights. Over 75% of Indians are farmers, and large-scale income strategies like MGNREGA and agro-based enterprises are needed to reduce child labour and poverty. By 2025, UBIS, increased budgets, social safety nets, and stronger public policy are needed. The Central Government and states are urged by the UN and ILO to create efficient action plans and implement corrective measures. Since 1981, India's child labour rate has been unequal; in 2025, 74.3 lakh youngsters would be employed. The most populous states are Maharashtra, Bihar, and Uttar Pradesh. Proposals for policies are essential to end child labour by 2025.Future human progress depends on children, hence child labour ought to end. Low pay, however, frequently result in the hiring of minors, emphasizing the obligation of people to stop and condemn such activities. Despite the aforementioned and other pertinent difficulties, the main objectives of these research papers are to undertake a macroeconomic theoretical study of Child Labour in India and the scope of labour required for Sustainable Development Goals. From this point of view, the current situation is important and relevant to both economy as well as society as a whole.
