Hassan: Additional Deputy Commissioner Kavitha Rajaram has instructed the officials concerned to create awareness among the people to effectively prevent child labour in the District.

The Executive Committee of the District Child Labour Planning Society held a meeting at the Dc’s Office Hall and asked them to identify the children who are labourers in their early childhood and infancy and make arrangements for their education.

She instructed the officials to write information on the prohibition of child labour on the walls of community halls in areas inhabited by Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe people in all Taluks of the District. She said that street plays and special advertisement boards should be put up in public places to create awareness among the people.

Noting that identification of child labourers should be expedited on the basis of the list of out-of-school children in collaboration with the Department of Public Instruction, she directed the officials to form a task force committee in each Taluk. She urged to educate the parents who drop out of school and push their children into child labour and make them aware of the facilities provided by the Government to the children, to the education of the children and the punishment under the law if child labour is followed.
